  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 150g butter (cubed)

  • Fry the onions in a pan (using the vegetable oil) for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add the potatoes and cheese and season to taste. Set aside and allow to cool
  • Pour the flour and butter into a mixing bowl and add a pinch of salt
  • Using your fingertips, rub the flour and butter together until it resembles breadcrumbs
  • Add 3-4 tbsp of cold water (gradually) and stir into the dough until it is well combined and sticks together
