French Onion Tart

Fri Jan 03, 2014 7:22 pm

So I was testing the edge on my shun after sharpening (this is my only high quality knife and I didn't want to "ruin" the edge, after sharpening a henkel to 15* and making it oh so sharp I tackled my shun's.)

I'm pleased to say it was a huge success, edge is beautiful and more toothy than before due to the 1500 grit. Which I enjoy when cutting tough skinned items such as bell peppers

Anyways, I now have 3 onions sliced and I'm wondering what the hell I can do with them.

I further tested the edge on some room temp bacon, like butter with no sticking at all.

So I have bacon and onions, I cooked off the bacon until it was crispy bacon bits. I then sautéed the onions with thyme in the bacon fat and caramelized them, de-glazing the fawn with some white wine.

I remembered I had some puff pastry in the freezer so I set off designing my dish. A puff pastry tart with caramelized onions, bacon, aged cheddar cheese, horseradish sour cream and green onions for garnish.

knife cut the cheese like butter

Final result. Tasted pretty damn good, a little rich but the acid from the horseradish sour cream cut it nicely. Would definitely make again for a dinner party, just a little smaller lol.

You almost passed the california gourmet test...The only thing you are missing is perfectly placed pieces of watercress...see in CA to be gourmet you've got to toss out the whole bunch but two pieces...

Looks good. If you get a chance try Orange Bakery Puff pastry...They make really good stuff and big sheets 15 inches.
