Tasty Tuesdays!

Caramelized Onion Tart!

So every week my buddies and I have what we call "UNO night"
(it's funny because we don't even play UNO anymore.)
  We do however eat. 
One night it was my turn for dinner and instead of prepping a full meal,
 I whipped up a bunch of little bites, tapas style.
This was a definite crowd pleaser.
Quick, Painless, Delicious.

Let's get started.

2 tbsp. butter

1 medium-large yellow onion, thinly sliced

1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
1 tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. salt
Black pepper
2 tbsp. white wine (optional)
½ cup ricotta cheese
1 egg yolk
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed 
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 350° F. 

 In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter.  

Add the sliced onion, thyme, sugar, salt, pepper and white wine to the pan.  

Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have fully caramelized and are golden brown in color, about 20-25 minutes.  
Remove from the heat and set aside.  
In a small bowl whisk together the ricotta and egg yolk until smooth.
To assemble the tart, lay the puff pastry sheet on a baking sheet and fold in each edge about 1 inch.  Spread the ricotta mixture over the puff pastry.  Sprinkle about half of the Parmesan cheese over the ricotta mixture.  

Layer the caramelized onions evenly over the ricotta mixture.  Top with the remaining Parmesan.  

Bake 25-30 minutes, until the puff pastry is golden and baked through.
 Slice into squares and serve warm.

Taster tester anyone?
