Want to know the secret to wonderfully sweet, sticky onions? It’s Werther’s Original Butter Candies! Give these goat’s cheese toasts a try and see for yourself


2 tbsp olive oil
3 onions, thinly sliced
30g Werther’s Original Butter Candies, ground to a fine powder
4 large slices sourdough bread
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
1 garlic clove, cut in half
150g goat’s cheese, sliced
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
handful of parsley, finely chopped


1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a low-medium heat, then add the onions and cook with a pinch of salt for 30 mins, stirring regularly. Add the ground Werther’s Original Butter Candies and cook for a further 10 mins until the onions are sticky and golden.

2. Heat the grill to high and drizzle one side of the bread slices with half the extra virgin olive oil. Grill for 2 mins, until golden, then turn over the slices and drizzle over the remaining oil. Grill for another 1 min.

3. Rub the garlic all over the bread and top with the goat’s cheese. Grill for a further 2 mins or until the cheese starts to melt. Transfer to a plate and spoon a quarter of the onions over each slice. Drizzle over a little more extra virgin olive oil and the balsamic vinegar, then finish with a scattering of parsley.
