Serves 4-6, Preparation time 10 mins, Cooking time 40 mins

  • 800 g red onions
  • 50 g Provolone cheese
  • 320 g puff pastry
  • 3 dessert spoons of sugar
  • 1 spoon of white vinegar
  • 20 g unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • Provolone cheese, to taste


Finely slice the onions, then put them in a pan with butter and let them simmer for about 10 min, then add sugar and cook over a low heat for about 20 mins, stirring from time to time by adding a spoon of white vinegar and let it evaporate by turning up the heat.
As soon as they are ready, let them cool down a bit.

Beat the egg along with a bit of water.

Dice the Provolone and set aside.

Preheat oven to 180C. Unroll puff pastry dough and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cut a 2cm border around the edge of the pastry and glaze its edge with beaten egg.

Prick with a fork the bottom of the puff pastry so it won’t swollen during baking, add caramelised onions and sprinkle diced Provolone over them.

Bake for 15-20 mins to 180 C or until the pastry is golden brown and Provolone melts.

You’ve been cooking up a storm!

This does look delicious. Unfortunately, red onions aren’t to be found right now due to a salmonella scare.  But I think I will try this when they come back.

Oh, I didn't know about the red onions salmonella over there. I hope you can find and cook them soon!

I haven't tried white onions, I don't know if they might work...
