Fay Ripley smoky cheese and onion tart

Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, peeled and fi nely sliced

  • 180g (6óoz) smoked Cheddar, e.g. Applewood, grated

  3. Unroll the pastry onto a lined baking tray. Fold over the edges of the pastry, 1cm (óin) in, all the way around to give the tart an edge. Use a fork to press it into place and mark the border.
  4. Spread the cheesy mix over the base of the tart and scatter with the tomato halves.
  5. Allow to cool slightly and serve on a big wooden board with a crisp green salad.
