Caramelised Onion Tartlets




Serves: 18
Prep/Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes



For the filling:

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over very low heat. Once melted, add the onions, place a lid on the pan, and cook on low heat for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the lid and turn the heat up to medium, then add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the vinegar and thyme, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cook for a further 10 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated, then transfer the onion to a plate and set aside to cool.

For the tartlets:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced (200°C conventional).
  2. Unroll the pastry, place it onto a lightly dusted work surface, then dust with flour.
  3. Using an 8.5cm egg ring or pastry cutter, cut 18 circles from the pastry sheet. Press the pastry rounds into the holes of a tartlet pan, then prick each tartlet with the prongs of a fork a few times. Place into the oven and bake for 13 minutes.
  4. While the tartlets are baking, combine the cheese with the beaten egg, adding the egg a teaspoon at a time until you get a dolloping consistency (e.g. avoid it being too runny).
  5. Once cooked, remove the tartlets from the oven, then top each with a teaspoon of the soft cheese mixture, followed by some caramelised onion. Return to the oven for a further 15 minutes, or until the edges of the cheese have turned slightly golden.
  6. Serving instructions
  7. Sprinkle sea salt and a grind of black pepper over the top, along with any leftover thyme leaves.
  8. TIP: If you don’t have a shallow tartlet baking pan, you can bake the rounds directly on a lined baking sheet.

About Ryan’s Grocery

Ryan’s Grocery is Singapore’s only full-service organic butchery and allergen-friendly specialist grocery store. The company’s journey began in July 2015 when founders Sebastian and Wendy Chia learnt of their son’s – Ryan – intolerance to gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, egg, and yeast. They searched local markets for products and produce, and even made personal trips internationally to look for a range of dietary items to support his needs.

It was then they saw a demand for such a specialty online grocery and Ryan’s Grocery was born. Ryan’s Grocery now services the local community, discerning shoppers and those with dietary intolerances with an all-inclusive range of organic meats, gluten-free products, and other related items with grocery delivery options. 

In December 2019, the brand launched its first overseas flagship store in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its flagship outlet in Singapore with ‘Ryan’s Grocery’ and ‘Ryan’s Kitchen’ opened in Great World in December 2020, spanning a total of 4,200 sq ft. In 2022, Ryan’s Grocery was awarded “Gourmet Retailer of the Year” and “Best Meat & Seafood Retailer” in Singapore by World Gourmet Summit & Tatler Asia respectively.
