Goats Cheese and Caramelised Onion Tartlet

Tartlets are SUCH an easy meal to create - especially if you buy ready done pastry that just needs popping in the own. You can vary them as much as you like; Goats Cheese and Caramelised Onions is definitely my favourite, but I often make Spinach, Ricotta and Caramelised Onions and Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables - you can even throw a bit of Salami on for those skeptical about veggie food!

For 6 portions

All you need is:
1 pack/roll of Jus-Rol Puff Pastry - they even do a low fat version now!
2 onions - white, red or a mixture
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
Goats cheese - as much or as little as you want; I really throw it on as it's so tasty!
1 egg, beaten - to glaze the pastry
Salt and Pepper, to season

Preheat oven to 180 and drizzle a little oil over a baking tray (big enough to fit the rolled out pastry on)

Chop onion - diced, sliced, whatever you feel like, and fry on a medium heat for a few minutes in a little oil. When softened a little, add sugar, stirring to coat. Add balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar. Turn heat as low as possible and leave to simmer for 5-10 minutes - until very soft - don't allow to brown.

While onions are simmering, roll out pastry (so easy!) and slightly roll up the edges to create a little 'wall'. Glaze pastry with your beaten egg - it is not necessary that it is all used, it should be a light coating.

When the onions are done, evenly scatter them over the pastry (in between the 'walls'). Slice your goats cheese, not too thin, and scatter over the top. Season over the entire thing.

Pop in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and slightly browned.

I find it best to serve with a tasty salad and dressing with homemade sweet potato wedges.
