Shortcrust pastry (bought ready made because who needs that extra mess), topped with slow caramelised onions, creamy brie and sliced sweet potato - sounds heavenly, tasted utterly amazing and also looked stunning! Rustled up in less than an hour (including baking time) this galette is sure to impress and features easy get and delicious ingredients! ENOY!

  • 1egg beaten, to glaze

  • Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a pan then add the onion and a good pinch of salt. 
  • Cook gently for 20-30 minutes or until really soft, golden and caramelised.
  • While the onions are cooking, drop the sweet potatoes into boiling salted water and cook for about 5 minutes or until just tender but still keeping their shape. 
  • Drain in a large colander.Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. 
  • Unroll the pastry and gently roll to make it square-shaped.

  • Put the pastry on a lined baking tray.
  • Spread the onion over the pastry, leaving a 2cm border.
