  • Pour in the cream, take off the heat and leave to cool a little.
  • Meanwhile, roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle a little larger than this magazine and transfer to a baking tray. Roll the edges up and press down to create a raised border.
  • Tip the creamy onions into a bowl. Mix in the grated cheese and most of the beaten egg.
  • Spread the mixture over the pastry, then scatter over the tomatoes and crumbled cheese.
  • Brush the borders with the remaining beaten egg, then bake for 20 mins until golden.
  • Leave to cool, then cut into squares.
