Caramelized Onions with melted Gruyere cheese inside a bite of crispy puffed pastry are a delightful addition to your party spread.
This weekend the Sunday Supper team is sharing a selection of tantalizing tapas for your next gathering, whether a sophisticated wine tasting party or an intense football game bash.
To begin, slice two yellow onions very thinly.
Sauté the onions with 4 tablespoons of butter and a teaspoon of sugar over low heat for about 10 minutes until golden and caramelized.
When the onions are done, remove the skillet from the heat.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
You’ll need a package of puff pastry dough that is thawed but still cool. Take out a sheet, and cut it in 9 squares with a knife, like a tic-tac-toe board.
You’ll need about 3 ounces of gruyere cheese. You can shred it if you like, but just quickly cut it into some little pieces.
Place about a tablespoon of caramelized onions in the center of a dough square, top with a little bit of the cheese.
Pull up the corners and pinch them together into a little bundle.
Place the bundles in the cups of a mini muffin pan. Repeat the process with the other sheet of dough, making 18 little bundles. Bake these for 15 minutes.
Look at these little beauties!
Serve them warm or at room temperature.

Try having a classy tapas party as an alternative dinner party some time, too. It makes for such a fun evening. I took part in one when we lived in Alaska, and a few people brought “mystery” tapas, and you had to guess what you were eating. And it being Alaska, we had goodies that included squirrel, caribou, bear and of course, my Drunk Moose Meatballs.
