Cheesy Onion Bites

Melted cheese with onions wrapped in crunchy pastry…to me, everything sounds right, wouldn’t you agree? I got ready made shortcrust pastry to make my life easier and made them in no time! Great for entertaining guests as well, give it a go!


  • 50 gr unsalted butter
  • 2 small yellow onions, sliced
  • 50 gr emmental cheese, finely grated
  • 50 gr mozzarella cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
  • 500 gr shortcrust pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg yolk plus 2 tablespoons of water, mixed together to glaze


  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  • Melt the butter in a pan and gently saute the onions until soft and golden, set aside and leave to cool.
  • Combine the cooled onions with the cheeses and mustard, mix well.
  • Cut the pastry into medium size rectangles.
  • Place some filling in each rectangle leaving a small gap along the edges.
  • Brush the borders with the egg wash and seal the pastry forming a pocket.
  • Brush the parcels with egg wash and cook in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Buon Appetito!!
