What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Heat butter and oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add onion and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes or until onion is soft.
Add sugar and vinegar and cook, stirring for 5 to 8 minutes or until mixture is caramelised and set aside to cool completely.
Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan forced.
Grease and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Combine flour, salt and 1/2 cup cheddar in a large bowl and season with pepper.
Make a well in the centre and add egg, milk and extra melted butter and mix well and then add onion mixture and knead gently until combined.
Divide mixture into 12 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball and arrange balls on prepared tray about 3cm apart and brush with a little extra milk and sprinkle with remaining cheddar.
