Makes: 18
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 25g butter
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 100g quince or fig paste
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 sheets frozen butter puff pastry, thawed
  • 120g goat’s cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • snipped chives, for sprinkling

Heat oil and butter and sauté onions over medium heat for 5-10 minutes until translucent. Add quince paste and stir over low heat until melted. Stir in vinegar and season to taste. Cut 9 x 8cm circles from each pastry sheet (or alternatively, cut into 9 squares) and press into 18 non-stick patty pans. Divide half the onion mixture between pastry cases and top with cheese. Whisk eggs and cream together and pour evenly into pastry cases. Bake at 200°C for 15 minutes until golden brown. Dollop with remaining onion mixture and serve sprinkled with chives.
