Tuesday- Caramelised onion and sausage tart, 100+ Tasty Meals by Sophie Gray


This was never going to be a pretty dinner, it tasted good though. We had corn and a few chips with it. It was hard to know what to have as it had so many things on it.

Oven 210 C

1 1/2 sheets of frozen or 1 block of puff pastry

4-5 pork sausages

2 potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 apple, peeled, cored and diced

caramelised onions  (see foot note *)

1 cup of beef stock

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp cornflour

1 tbsp water

Roll pastry out to a rectangle, place on a greased baking sheet

Score a 1 cm boarder with a sharp knife, do not cut all the way through

Prick the centre with a fork

Fry sausages until browning and just cooked through

Boil potatoes for 3-5 minutes in a small pan until just soft, drain

Remove cooked sausages and slice

Return them to pan with potatoes and fry until potatoes turn golden

Add apple, caramelised onion, stock and balsamic vinegar

Simmer until apple is soft and sauce reduced

Combine cornflour and water, add to mix

Spoon onto pastry evenly

Bake for 25 minutes until edges have risen and filling hot.

* Caramelised onion- (p62 of 100 + tasty $10 meals)

1 tbsp olive oil

2 onions, thinly sliced

1 tbsp brown sugar

heat oil in a small pan

add onion, gently fry until they are a good dark colour

add brown sugar and cook until they are a rich caramel colour


The only change was decreasing ingredients by 1/3 but using full amount of caramelised onion. I only used 3 sausages and 1 sheet of puff pastry as there are 3 of us.


I would make this again. It did feel fiddly as it was a new recipe. I would cut down on the time by cooking the sausages in advance. It would also be a good way to use up left overs.

  1. I love Sophie’s crusade for cheap and tasty meals. I always have puff pastry in the freezer and this looks like a good hearty meal. This looks like it could also be good for lunch or picnics 🙂
