|Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Tart|
Anytime you say "goat cheese" or "caramelized onions" you hear "ooohs" and "ahhhs" - can you imagine the reaction when you put them together on puff pastry? This is a great recipe. It is pretty and special looking, but it is so simple. It works great cut into small pieces for a cocktail party, in large pieces with a salad or as a side dish with dinner.
Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tart
18 hors d'œuvres | 9 medium-sized for salad or side
1 sheet of frozen puff pastry (usually comes with 2 per box, so this is an easy recipe to double)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 red onion, sliced thinly
4 ounces of goat cheese
Start by caramelizing the onions in a saute pan in olive oil over medium heat. This will take 10-15 minutes. Keep stirring until they start to turn brown... you're bringing out the sugar in the onion and creating a caramel.
On a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, place a sheet of puff pastry (unfolded from the package). Cut it along the folds into three long pieces. Pile the onions down the center of each piece. Top the onions with chunks of the goat cheese evenly distributed.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes until puffed and the edges are brown.
