A few of you were asking for the recipe for the yummy tart I posted on Instagram. You are all in for a treat as this is super easy. If anyone needs any more info let me know!
Recipe makes 4 tarts, serving 2.
To get started, preheat the oven to 200 degrees fan, 220 normal.
Leave your sheet of puff pastry out of the fridge to get to room temperature so it rolls out easier.
- One small onion
- One clove of garlic
- Three rashers of bacon (if vegetarian you could substitute for asparagus)
- Mushrooms- about 4 large ones for filling and two to decorate the top (I used forestiere mushrooms as they have more flavour and are of the season)
- Half a tub of cream cheese approx 80g
- Cheddar Cheese approx 50g
- Parsley to garnish if you wish
- Egg to glaze pastry
In a frying pan, lightly fry the bacon, onion, garlic and mushrooms (These should be all diced into very small into roughly the same sized pieces). When the onion has softened and bacon cooked, add your creamed cheese and stir. It will make a lovely sauce!
Taking your sheet of pastry which should roll out with ease, cut it into four rectangles and put on a baking tray. Add the mixture to each of the tarts leaving about 0.5cm at the edge.
Grate your cheese over each, and decorate with three slices of mushroom and add more cheese if preferred. Dab a little beaten egg around the edges so they go golden.
Pop into the preheated oven at 200 degrees fan for around 10 minutes, check on them and add more cheddar cheese if you wish and leave them in for another 5 minutes until golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
Serve warm with a salad of your choosing!
