  • 2 tsp salt

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C on fan-bake.

  5. Mix well to combine, adding a little more milk if necessary.

  6. Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a rectangle.

  7. Cut in half, and roll each half to form two even squares, about 1 cm thick.

  8. Spread one square with caramelised onion.

  9. Carefully lift the other square and place on top.

  10. Cut into 16 even-sized pieces.

  11. Place on baking trays and brush with milk.

  12. Sprinkle with a little grated cheese.

  13. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until golden-brown and not too soft to the touch.
