  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Cut the pastry into 4 rectangles and place on a baking sheet. Mark a border 1cm in from the edge of the pastry with a sharp knife. Spoon the onions into the middle, smooth then top with the cheese and thyme. Drizzle with oil and bake for 15-20 mins, until the cheese has melted and the pastry has risen and is golden brown.
  2. For the onions: Makes 600g, which is 3 batches. Prep time 5 mins, cook time 30 mins. Melt the butter in a large, deep frying pan and stir through the onions. Cover with a lid and cook gently for about 10 mins, until softened. Remove lid, add sugar, then cook 15-20 mins, stirring, until all of the liquid has evaporated and onions have turned golden. Divide into 3 batches to make the recipes, right. Will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.

Really tasty. I make this regularly as a quick snack with a rocket and beetroot salad. My boyfriend doesn't really like goats cheese but he enjoys this if it has a balsamic glaze over the top!

Lovely! I added a dash of Balsamic vinegar to the onions to give them a little extra kick too.

This is so simple and so tasty. I made it twice in quick sucession for suppers to use up pastry I had in the fridge. Everyone liked it. You can end up with a dry pastry edge but that didn't seem a problem as all the edges seemed to get eaten.

would this work if you added an egg to the onion? so it's like a quiche?

I have had this dish twice now!

Added some green pesto under the onions and put on a bed of dressed rocket (balsamic drizzle)

One word....... Delicious!
