  • Roll out the ready-made pastry and cut out 4 rounds 13cm in diameter. Use to line 4 individual tartlets about 10cm or a Yorkshire pudding/muffin tin. Prick the base all over with a folk and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to let the pastry rest.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/400°F/gas mark 6.
  • For the best results blind bake the tartlets first. Line the pastry case with foil and add the baking beans. Place on a baking tray and place in the oven for 12-15 minutes, remove the foil and beans and bake for a further 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime mix the blue cheese and mascarpone cheese with the egg yolks and thyme and then season to taste (be careful with the salt).
  • Remove the tarts from the oven and reduce the heat to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Spoon 1 tbsp of caramelised onion into each tartlet and top with the cheese mixture. Place in the oven for 15 minutes until the filling is set.
  • In the meantime make the dressing, mix all the dressing ingredients together and season to taste.
  • To serve, place the tarts on serving plates with salad leaves and drizzle with the dressing around each tart, enjoy!
