This recipe is very rich and very very addictive and a brilliant alterative to the usual stuffed mushrooms or Welsh rarebit and if you use mustard such as Tracklement it is completely gluten free. To save time and if you have any to hand you could always skip the caramelised onion stage and use an onion jam instead such as #170996…

These were a hit with my very fussy family. The first time I made them I forgot to add the onions so I put it on last and I think it makes it more aesthetically pleasing (plus the really fussy ones can pick off the onion!) Absolute winner thank you!
