  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C, 160 C fan, 350 F, gas 4. Melt 50g (2oz) butter on a low heat, add the onions and fry for about 25 minutes on a low heat until caramelized and slightly browned.

  2. Melt the remaining butter, take out the filo pastry and place one sheet on a chopping board. The rest should be kept covered with clingfilm until needed. Brush the filo with butter, then cut it into squares, approximately 6cm, using a knife. Press two squares of pastry into each muffin tin hole, filling all 24 cases.

  3. Bake in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes, but be careful as it burns easily. Cool the filo cases, then add a teaspoon of caramelized onions and a small blob of goat's cheese. Garnish with flat-leaf parsley.
