Prepare the Onions
In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are deeply caramelised and sweet. This could take up to 30 minutes for a rich, golden brown effect.
Once the onions are caramelised, you can add extra leaves of fresh thyme and stir for an additional minute, then set aside.

Building the Tacos
In a bowl, combine the ground turkey with salt and black pepper and thyme, ensuring it's well-seasoned. Lay out the small tortillas and spread the seasoned ground turkey on one side of each tortilla.
In a skillet over medium heat, place the taco, turkey side down, and cook for about 5 minutes until the meat is no longer pink. Flip the taco over in the pan, and add slices of Brie cheese on top of the cooked turkey. Allow the Brie to melt slightly, then carefully remove the taco from the pan, ensuring the contents stay intact.

Cheese Sauce
In a pot, heat the 2 tablespoons of butter and then whisk in the flour. Keep it moving until it's bubbly and cooked for about a minute. Gradually whisk in the milk, continuing to cook until the sauce begins to thicken. Turn off the heat and stir in the shredded cheddar along with salt and smoked paprika, whisking until the cheese has fully melted into the sauce.

If ground turkey isn't your thing or it’s not available, feel free to use ground chicken or beef.
Not a fan of Brie? Try camembert for a similar melt and flavor profile. For the cheese sauce, a good melting cheese like Gouda or Monterey Jack can be used in place of cheddar.
