Stilton, bacon and red onion tartlets


We’ve packed away the decorations and laid the Christmas songs to rest for another year, but what’s left in your fridge? Admittedly, I didn’t have the stilton left in the fridge, it was on the clearance shelf at the supermarket and I do so love blue cheese!

27mins – Prep time: 15mins – Cooking time: 12mins

{Makes: 12}


  • 1 pack ready rolled puff pastry (375g)
  • 180g bacon lardons
  • 60g stilton
  • 1/2 red onion


Oven temp: 140°C/390°F

  1. Grease 12 hole bun tin and cut out circles just larger than the holes in the tin. Gently push the circles into the holes using your knuckles.
  2. Gently fry off the bacon and onions in a pan over a medium heat. The onions will cook in the lardon fat and will soften. Don’t overcook the bacon, the oven will finish the job!
  3. Divide the bacon and onions evenly between the 12 holes.
  4. Crumble the stilton over the tops of the tartlets.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, until the pastry starts to brown a little and the stilton has melted down.
