Ham and spring onion tart

Great lunch dish with green salad.

Ham and spring onion tart
This looks really great if you can find red spring onions, but green will taste good, too!

3 bunches of spring onions (trim off the ends)
1 tablespoon olive oil, half tablespoon of balsamic vinegar stirred into 1 teaspoon of caster sugar
375g pack of oven-ready puff pastry
8 slices of a good ham, eg Serrano ham
1 egg, beaten with teaspoon of ice-cold water

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Lightly oil a baking sheet and unroll the puff pastry on to the sheet. Using a sharp knife, score a line all round the pastry, 1.5cm in from the edge – this will be used to make a ‘lip’ when the pastry rises.
Lay the ham within the line and put the spring onions on top in 2 rows (you may have to cut to fit). Sprinkle with the oil/balsamic/sugar mix. Season to taste with freshly ground salt and pepper.
Brush the pastry border with the egg, then fold the edges over to meet the scored line. Brush the new border with egg.

Put the baking sheet on top shelf of oven and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
