600g / 1lb 5oz onions

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

175g / 6oz Stilton

  • Splash in the vinegar, season, then cook for a further 5 minutes, until lightly caramelised. Leave to cool while you prepare the pastry.
  • Unroll the pastry and use to line a 23 x 33cm / 9 x 13 inch shallow oblong tin.
  • Spread over the onions, then crumble the stilton on top and scatter with walnuts.
  • Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden and the cheese has melted.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving, cut into squares.
