#Laptopclub and a Caramelised Onion Tart

laptop club breakfast

A couple of weekends ago we had our first ever #laptopclub.

#laptopclub is an opportunity for bloggers to come together to learn more about the technical side of blogging – SEO, CSS, HTML etc under the skilful tutelage of the ever wonderful Laura Lock.

I put together breakfast with help from Harney & Sons and Anathoth, Laura taught some fascinating stuff and everyone chatted extensively. In my humble opinion it was quite wonderful.

Laura and I have decided to make #laptopclub a regular thing. We’re going to be releasing some dates and topics really soon which is quite exciting. In the mean time I thought that I would share one of the treats we had at #laptopclub…

Caramelised Onion Tart

Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart

A sweet and tangy savoury treat to make your taste buds happy.

To make 24 (you can make them over a few days as you desire them, I’ll explain how…) you will need…

  • 6 onions
  • A dash of balsamic vinegar
  • A knob of butter
  • A dash of olive oil
  • A tablespoon (or two – to taste) of brown sugar
  • A sprinkle of salt
  • A sprig of thyme
  • Puff pastry sheets
  • Anathoth Quince Conserve
  • A block of Feta

Begin by caramelising your onions. Chop your onions finely and add to a pan with the balsamic vinegar, butter, olive oil, sugar and salt. I put mine on after dinner one night and then let them do their thing on the lowest heat with a simmer mat for a few hours. You can do it more quickly but the slower and longer you take the more beautiful the flavour will be.

Once finished you can put the now caramelised onions in a jar or bowl in the fridge. They’ll keep for a few days (or longer if you add more oil).

The onions are the most time consuming part, the rest is easy.

When you’re ready to make some tarts, get out your onions, quince conserve, puff pastry and feta. Thaw out the pastry and cut each sheet into six pieces (or as large a tart as you desire).

Smear some quince conserve on to the center of the pastry and top with caramelised onions and crumbled feta. Chilli flakes and smoked paprika would also add a nice touch if you’re feeling daring…

Lightly brush the exposed edge of the pastry with butter and put in the oven to cook on 180 degrees celsius for around 15 minutes. Remove from the oven when the edges are starting to get some colour on them.

Take them out and as soon as you can dare your tongue, tuck in.
