This recipe was inspired by a tart I tasted in a local French restaurant. It is completely irresistible. Paired with a hearty salad, you have a meal that no one will turn away from.

Instructions Checklist

  • Unroll puff pastry onto a baking sheet. Score edges at 1/4-inch intervals using a paring knife or press edges using a fork. Return pastry to the freezer until you're ready to use it.

  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and heat for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-high. Add bacon and cook until crisp around the edges but stiff soft in the center, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add onions, mushrooms, and thyme. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt to help vegetables release water. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to wilt and most of the water has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with black pepper to taste. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to a platter.

  • Place ricotta cheese in a bowl. Beat in egg yolk and remaining oil until smooth. Season with salt and black pepper. Spread ricotta mixture to within 1/2-inch of the edges of the puff pastry. Sprinkle Gruyere cheese on top, then cover with mushroom mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes.

This was very good. I mixed some garlic powder into both the onion mixture and the ricotta mixture as well as mixing some black pepper salt and a tsp of honey into the ricotta. I used two sheets of puff pastry (the entire box) and doubled the ricotta mixture. I reserved 1/4 of the gruyere to sprinkle over the top of the onion mixture before baking. I drizzled about a tsp of honey over the top before baking. Read More

I think the mushroom mixture and the ricotta were bland. I would add more spices if I make again. Read More

I liked this very well. Doubled most ingredients (did not double mushrooms or thyme), to make 2 tarts. Maybe it could use a little more salt? Should I have doubled the thyme (it seemed to smell so strong when raw)? Some truffle oil? Stinkier cheese? It left me wishing for just a little more something. I found that for my two tarts, I needed to almost double baking time. Very tasty. May try it again if I can figure out something to boost the flavor. Read More
