This is one of my favourite quick meals to rustle up at short notice. If you’re using ready made pastry (like Jus Rol), it’s prepped and cooked in twenty minutes. This tart works out at £2.70 – just over 67p per portion!
To feed four:
5 Red onions
375g Puff Pastry (rolled)
1/2 Tbsp brown soft sugar
Knob of butter
A splash of milk.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Quarter the onions and add to a frying pan on medium heat along with a knob of butter and half a tablespoon of brown soft sugar. Cover with a lid and cook until the onions have softened slightly (about 5mins).
With your pastry in the shape you’d like, transfer it to a baking tray. Lightly score a border about 2cm from the edge and brush with milk. Fill the centre with the onions (discard any liquid in the pan) and slices of brie.
Bake for 15mins or until the pastry is golden. Doesn’t it look impressive for so little work?
It makes a lovely simple starter for a dinner party, we like it served hot with a big salad for tea. If there are any leftovers (I doubt it) just pop it in the fridge, it makes a lovely cold snack the next day.
If you fancy something a little different, try pesto and goats cheese or a tomato, basil and mozzarella tart.
