Brie, Red Onion and Tomato Pie

This recipe is a quick pie that's really easy to make. It doesn't take more than an hour from starting cooking to eating pie, and half of that time is with the pie cooking in the oven.


  • 3 red onions, finely chopped

  • 30g butter

  • 1 ready rolled sheet of pastry

  • 300g cherry tomatoes, whole

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 1 tablespoon basil

  • 250g (one triangular piece) brie, chopped in to half inch cubes


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees

  2. Use some of the butter to grease a ovenproof pie dish

  3. Put the remaining butter into a pan and melt it

  4. Add the red onions and fry with the lid on the pan for 3 minutes or until soft

  5. Add the flour, cherry tomatoes and basil to the pan, turn the heat down and stir every couple of minutes

  6. Put half the pre-rolled pastry into the pie dish and carefully manipulate it so that if covers the bottom and sides of the dish

  7. Place in oven for 8 minutes to partially cook the pastry

  8. Remove pie dish from oven and mix the brie into the tomato and onion mixture

  9. Put the brie and tomato mixture into the pie dish and cover the top with the remaining pastry

  10. Cut off any pastry hanging over the edge and use to decorate the top of the pie (I did tomatoes, onions and a slice of cheese shapes... yes that is what the pie in the photo is supposed to have on the top of it)

  11. Bake pie in oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown

Serves 3 to 4. More if served with potatoes.
