Simple Caramelized Onion Tart

This simple caramelized onion and goat cheese tart is not just delicious but pretty good looking too! With under 5 ingredients and a little bit of time, proudly serve this onion tart!

Large Onions Goat Cheese Puff Pastry


Peel the onions and then slice into super thin rounds.

Step 1

In a sauté pan add the sliced onions, a heavy pinch of salt, stir well and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring once.

Step 2

After 5 minutes, turn the heat down to medium and let cook under brown and caramelized. Once cooked, remove from pan and set aside.

Step 3

To assemble the tart you'll need to have your puff pastry defrosted, but still cold. Take out of the freezer and let rest 30-45 minutes on the counter.

Step 4

Roll out the puff pastry just a bit  Then layer the onions over the top, leaving a small edge of puff pastry uncovered and sprinkle the goat cheese over the top of the tart.

Step 5

Now, fold all of the edges over until you have a rustic tart shape. Then put into the oven and bake until the puff pastry is golden brown and puffed up, about 20-25 minutes.

Step 6

You can easily double this recipe.  Just use twice the number of onions and caramelized them  in a large sauté pan with tall sides.  Then you can use both pieces of puff pastry that typically come in a box.
