Free Form Goats Cheese and Balsamic Onion Tartlets
Quick and easy to prepare and utterly delicious, these tartlets make a perfect savoury snack or starter. Readymade puff pastry takes the hard work out of the kitchen prep – simply top it with a chunk of chevin and pop in the oven until golden brown and crispy. Top with onion caramelised on the stovetop with a dash of balsamic vinegar, and serve with a simple salad of micro herbs and baby tomatoes.
