Couple of weeks ago we had visitors from New-Zealand. One evening they prepared dinner for us - cheese rolls from the South Island. 
The original rolls are made with onion soup that is not available here so I decided to make them with caramelized onions and pesto.

4 rolls
4 big toast bread
50g (or more if you like)grated cheese
2 onions / chopped
2 cloves garlic /chopped
50g pine nuts 
50g basil
pinch of sugar and salt
olive oil
cherry vinegar (optional)

Toast the pine nuts until colored.
Combine pine nuts, olive oil  and basil in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
Add salt.

Saute onions with garlic. Add pinch of salt, pepper and sugar(and cherry vinegar).

Roll the bread flat with a rolling pin. Spread pesto over the bread, then cheese, onions and roll up. 

Bake in oven at 180C for 10 minutes.
