Clafoutis (cla-foo-tee) is a French dessert that’s based on a fluffy batter with generous amounts of fruit, usually cherries. But it can also present itself as a savory dish reminiscent of frittata. In this gorgeous and tasty Caramelized Shallot and Tomato Clafoutis, the shallots skyrocket the overall flavor and the tomatoes bring instant brightness. Goat cheese lends the dish a creamy mouthfeel.
Tip: Stay golden
When caramelizing shallots and onions, it’s important to go slow. If you bump up the heat to rush the process, they’ll scorch. At lower temperatures, the sugars trapped inside caramelize steadily, never burning but instead growing ever more golden and delicious. Caramelized shallots and onions also taste great on burgers and sandwiches.
