making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Ingredients
1 sheet store-bought frozen puff pastry, defrosted
1/4 cup butter, melted

1 large sweet onion, cut into rings (leave the rings intact)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
8 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
10 fresh thyme sprigs

Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a floured surface, roll out puff pastry to approximately a 9" x 13" rectangle, then transfer puff pastry to prepared baking sheet and prick with a fork.

Brush pastry with melted butter. Sprinkle with goat cheese and scatter thyme sprigs on top. Place onions over goat cheese, leaving a 1/2" border around the edges.

Bake until puff pastry is golden brown and crisp and cheese is warm and melted, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut into squares and serve.
