  • 1 roll (400 g) puff pastry
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) sunflower oil
  • 10 tsp (50 ml) sugar
  • 10 tsp (50 ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 100 g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 80 g sliced beef biltong
  • sea salt
  • freshly milled black pepper
  • ½ C (125 ml) cream
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 190 ºC.

Lightly grease six individual tart tins. Roll out the pastry gently and cut into six squares. Roughly line the tins with the pastry and prick holes in the bases.

Place the onions, oil, sugar and balsamic vinegar into a saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes – until reduced, soft and glossy.

Spoon the onions, biltong slices and crumbled blue cheese into the tart tins. Reserve some biltong and blue cheese for garnishing. Season to taste.

Beat the cream and eggs together and pour over filling (some of the filling should still be visible). Brush exposed pastry with egg wash and bake for 25 minutes.
