    Two Cheese and Onion Tart

    Pastry dishes are easy with Saxby's Fresh Ready Rolled Puff Pastry. Use it to make this cheese and onion tart that combines roasted red onions with two West Country cheeses that are full of flavour. Serve this dish with plenty of salad as a starter or light lunch. It is also wonderful eaten cold as part of a late summer picnic.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus 10 minutes cooling time
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes to 25 minutes
    • Total time: 35-40 minutes, plus 10 minutes cooling time 50 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 375g pack Saxby's Fresh Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
    • 300g Waitrose Ingredients Roasted Red Onions in Balsamic Vinegar with Fresh Thyme, drained (from the Deli Counter)
    • 100g West Country Farmhouse Double Gloucester Cheese
    • 100g West Country Farmhouse Mature Cheddar
    • 250g cherry tomatoes, washed and halved
    • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Unroll the pastry on a large baking sheet. Using the tip of a sharp knife, mark a rim around the pastry, 5cm from the edges, taking care not to cut right through. Prick the pastry all over with a fork within the marked lines.
    2. Arrange the onions on the pastry within the marked lines, then cut the cheese into cubes. Scatter the cheese and the tomatoes over the onions.
    3. Season and bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and the cheese is melted and lightly browned. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then sprinkle with parsley. Cut into squares to serve.

    Drinks recommendation

    There is no better match for tangy English cheeses than a strong dry-edged cider such as Waitrose Vintage Cider.
