Like most of my vacations, my New York trip revolves around food. In addition to visiting some of the new restaurants, I love going to our favorite spots.
One of my favorite spots is a French restaurant called Balthazar. Located between Broadway and Crosby in Soho, it is a perfect excuse to spend a full day walking around and admiring the narrow streets that neighborhood.
I always order the same thing the warm goat cheese and caramelized onion tart.
This Goat Cheese Quiche with Caramelized Onions and Thyme quiche is my version of Balthazar’s tart.

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Take it out of the oven and set it aside. Do not turn the oven off.

While the crust is baking, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet, in medium heat.

Add onions, and stirring often, cook for 20-25 minutes or until they turn into golden brown. Set aside.

When you first take it out of the oven it may look like the middle part of the quiche is not fully cooked.
