1. For the onions, heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the onions, stir well, then cover and cook for 15 mins, stirring every now and then. Stir really well and add the sugar, lots of seasoning and the walnuts, olives and rosemary. Cook for 5 mins more, until soft and very golden.

3. Pile the onions onto the pastry rounds, top with goat's cheese and place a walnut half on top of the cheese. Bake for 10 mins until the cheese is melty. Toss the watercress with the dressing, pile onto plates and serve the pastry on top.
