- 4 large potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced
- 60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil
- 20g unsalted butter
- 4 onions, sliced into thin wedges
- 125ml (1/2 cup) thick cream
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 x 375g blocks puff pastry
- 1 egg, beaten
- Step 1Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the potatoes on an oiled baking tray, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil, then roast for 15 minutes.
- Step 2Heat remaining oil and butter in a pan over low heat. Add onion and cook for 20 minutes until soft and golden. Set aside to cool. Combine onion and potato with cream, thyme and garlic. Season and set aside to cool.
- Step 3Roll out pastry blocks on a lightly floured surface to 35 x 20cm rectangles. Place one sheet on a lightly floured baking tray and spread the mixture in the centre, leaving a 2cm border. Brush edge with egg, place other sheet on top and press together, pinching until sealed. (We used a little extra pastry to make decorative leaves.)
- Step 4Brush all over with egg. Make 2 air holes in the top and bake for 25 minutes until crisp and golden.
Tip: This dish works really well using leftover potato gratin.
