Cheese and onion are old friends and were made to go together. This delicious savory pie is super easy to prepare with store-bought sheets of puff pastry, and is great for brunch, or for dinner with a large tossed salad. From the "Everyday Vegetarian".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
  2. Line an oven tray with baking paper and set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and saute the onions over medium heat for 5- 7 minutes, or until golden and soft.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool for 10 minutes, before adding the cheese, parsley, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Mix well, then add 1 beaten egg to the bowl, with salt and pepper to your taste, and mix well again.
  6. Using a cake pan or dinner plate as a guide, cut each sheet of pastry into a 9 inch (23 cm) circle.
  7. Lay one sheet of pastry on the prepared baking tray.
  8. Dollop the cheese mixture over the pastry base, piling it higher in the middle, and leave a narrow border around the edge.
  9. Lightly brush the border with some of the second beaten egg.
  10. Place the remaining sheet of pastry over the filling, stretching lightly if necessary to neatly fit the bottom sheet.
  11. Press and seal the edges well.
  12. Brush the top with the remaining beaten egg, and cut two slits in the top to allow the steam to escape.
  13. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, before reducing the heat to 350F (180C).
  14. Cook a further 20-25 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden brown.

This is such a keeper! I slow cooked the onions for about 20 min, the flavor became quite subtle, otherwise followed it exactly. Bet to let it rest a bit out of the oven as the insides are melted cheese runny. Taste is fabulous. Kept part of it for later so put it in the frig. Cut off a slice and found i excellent cold - so this cold be a marvelous appetizer for parties, but I think it's definitely special main dish. And it's so easy!

Rich, tasty and YUMMY. Love the taste of mustard and worcestershire sauce in the background. Great idea to have a salad with it.
