Caramelized Onion, Goats Cheese & Brie Tart

IMG_0006I feel a bit cheeky posting this – its hardly Masterchef or going to win any prizes for the most intricate, complicated recipe ever! But that’s what also makes it so good, and I often forget these easy, quick and so so tasty snacks as I browse cookery books in front of the fire on a wet and windy Saturday trying to find the perfect starter for our Saturday night feast, appropriate beer poured. (This was actually Leigh’s beer, and is apparently very good!)



2 red onions

1 dessert spoon of dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

2 oz butter

1/2 sheet puff pastry (yes – I bought it! This is a cheat, easy recipe, remember!)

1/2 log Goats cheese

7 or 8 slices of Brie


  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Slice the onions thinly and caramelize slowly in the butter over a low heat for about 30 minutes with the sugar and vinegar. Stir from time to time so it wont stick. Allow to cool.


  • Roll out the pastry. Cover with the onions.


  • Cover with the sliced cheese.


  • Cook in oven for 20 minutes, check (it may need a few extra minutes). Take out, slice and wonder why you didn’t make a slightly bigger one as you could do with just one more slice!
