Mature Cheddar, Rosemary and Red Onion Tart


(We suggest you use a sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry to make this perfect family dish, ideal for a snack or buffet)

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas Mark 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet and lay the puff pastry sheet on top.

2. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan and add the red onions. Cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, then add the sugar and cook for another few minutes until the onions are very soft and caramelised. Season with salt and pepper and add the dried herbs. Cool for a few minutes.

3. Spread the onions over the pastry sheet to within 2cm (3/4 inch) of the edges. Scatter the Cheddar Cheese on top, then add the rosemary or thyme sprigs.

4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 12 - 15 minutes until puffed up and golden brown. Cool for a few moments, then slice and serve.
