  1. Put 1 tbsp of the melted butter in a small pan over a low heat. Add the onion and leave to cook for five minutes, until soft. Set aside to cool a little.

  5. Cook in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Then sprinkle over the leftover cheese and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes until golden and cooked through. Leave in the tin for a couple of minutes, then turn out, cut into triangles and serve warm.
