ServesPrep Time 30 minutes 
Total Cooking and Baking Time
45 minutes


olive oil
700 grams white onions, sliced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 (375-gram) block frozen puff pastry,
      thawed overnight in the refrigerator

1 tablespoon water


1  In a heavy-bottomed pot, heat a couple of glugs olive oil.

Sauté onions, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent.

3  Add balsamic vinegar and sugar; stir. Cook until onions are deeply burnished and caramelized. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to make sure they don't burn. Set aside.

4  Roll out the puff pastry until about 1/5-inch- thick. Slice off a thin sliver from each side so the edges are straight. With a sharp knife, score a 1/2-inch border from the edge.

5  Evenly distribute the onions on the inside border of the pastry. Top with slices of cheese.

Mix beaten egg and water. Brush on border of the pastry.

7  Place tart on a parchment-lined baking tray in a preheated 400ºF oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tart is puffed and golden.

Pastry tip: When using ready-made frozen puff pastry, even the "ready-rolled" types, always trim the edges as this allows the pastry to puff out more. You can also use a round cookie cutter to cut the puff pastry to make individual tartlets.
