- 375g pack ready-rolled puff pastry

- 100g (3½ oz) mature Cheddar

- 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

- Heavy baking sheet
You can use any combination of cheese you like in this dish: Lancashire also tastes great.
- Set the oven to 220°C (425°F, gas mark 7). Carefully unroll the pastry on to a heavy baking sheet. With a sharp knife, mark a border about 2.5cm (1in) in from the edge all the way round.
- Lightly mark the border for decoration. With a fork, prick inside the border, to keep the pastry flat while it cooks. Spread the chutney inside the border then strew the onion slices all over.
- Cut the cheese into cubes and sprinkle them on the top, then tuck in the tomato halves. Season. Brush the pastry border with milk, if you like.
- Bake the tart in the bottom half of the oven for about 35 mins. Cool for a few mins, then sprinkle with parsley. Cut into squares and serve warm with a mixed salad.
