Onion Tarts - Heaven to Eat

I am currently working on a Vegetarian project with my class. My sister who has been a Vegetarian for many years said she had lots of magazines I could use and so I cmae home with a pile. They have been beside my chair and from time to time I look through the well thumbed pages and find inspiration. I came across this recipe and it is so easy to make and heaven to eat.

Onion Tart

1 tabsp. olive oil
15g butter
2 large onions - halved
1 tabsp. chopped thyme plus 4 small sprigs
2 absp. balsamic vinegar
1 pkt ready roll puff pastry
150g Camembrt cut into 4 wedges
1 egg

1. Pre-heat the oven to 220C/Gas 7. Gently heat the oil and butter in a large pan
and add the halved onions, cut side down. Cover with lid and cook for 15 mins
until onions are soft
2. Remove the lid, season well turn onions over and cook for extra 5 mins until
onions start to turn golden. Add chopped thyme and balsamic vinegar. Cool
3. Cut the pastry into four 18cm squares.
4. Place an onion half cut side up on one of the pastry squares. Add a sprig of
thyme and a wedge of cheese.
5. Brush the pastry edges with beaten egg and fold the pastry around the onion to
enclose all but the top of the onion and cheese.
6. Repeat with remaining pastry.
7. Place on a baking tray and glaze with egg.
8. Bake 20 minutes until pastry is golden and well risen.
9. Serve hot with vegetables.

I only realised last week that these magazines are 10 years old.

On holiday now for one week so I am going to make the most the garden and start my spring cleaning.

These sound easy and delicious. How could one go wrong with Camembert, onions and Balsamic vinegar?
