  • 8 smallish red onions, (or brown), about 100g each
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 25g butter
  • 100ml dry cider
  • 150g Asda Brie (or Camembert)
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Peel the onions and cut off the roots, leaving the bases intact so they will sit steadily in the cooking dish but not fall apart during cooking. Cut a cross in the top of each one, about three quarters of the way down.

  • Brush all over with oil and put in a roasting tin with any remaining oil. Put a small piece of butter on top of each onion, pressing it into the cross. Pour over the cider. Cover loosely with foil and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.

  • Remove the foil and baste the onions with the cider. Return to the oven and cook, uncovered, for a further 25 minutes, basting every so often.

  • Cut the cheese into 8 pieces and press a piece into the top of each onion. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
