Sweet caramelized onions, creamy Gorgonzola cheese and flaky puff pastry come together for an easy savory tart. Slice it up and serve as an appetizer at your next get-together.
If you haven't been to Kevin of Closet Cooking's blog, you must do so immediately after you read this post. He produces the most innovative recipes, accompanied by fantastic photos. Oh yeah, and he's a fellow Canadian. However, he is from the eastern side of Canada, where they tend to end many of the sentences with "eh". Ah well, we'll forgive him for that. Big of me, isn't it? I'm sure he has a few western Canada barbs he could send my way.
Recently Kevin featured an Asparagus and Gruyere Tart, using store-bought puff pastry as the crust. Once I read about this recipe, along with his tomato tart and strawberry tart, I was inspired to dream up my own toppings for a puff pastry tart. So, that's just what I did. I had several lonely-looking onions sitting in my pantry and some creamy Gorgonzola cheese in my fridge. Since Gorgonzola can be quite sharp and salty, I thought a perfect foil would be some sweet caramelized onions. We paired this dish with a green salad for a light dinner, but it would work just as well as a side dish or an appetizer (think little wedges).
