Red onion and bacon tart. - Recipe!

While the weather is warm we want lighter things to eat but we soon get sick of things like salad and quiches so I have been trying new things and one of those things is the red onion and bacon tart which was inspired by one of the Gousto meals we have tried in the past, crispy bacon & leek tart. It feels like a proper summer meal and all of my family love it.

Red onion and bacon tart


2 Red onions.
A packet of smoked bacon.
A sheet of ready made puff pastry.
Soft cheese.

Red onion and bacon tart ingredients

How to make:

Chop and fry the red onions.

While the onions are frying unwrap the puff pastry and score a 1cm border around the edge of the pastry with a knife. The border with puff up to create a crust.

Spread the soft cheese over the pastry within the border.

Chop the streaky bacon and fry that until it becomes crispy.

Add the fried red onion and bacon to the pastry sheet and pop it in the oven until the pastry is browned, that's it!

This is one of those meals that up until trying similar in a Gousto box I wouldn't have thought of making. It's such a simple, tasty and filling meal which doesn't take long to make at all and all of my family love it. When we have the red onion and bacon tart we have either been having it just with salad or if we are feeling hungrier boiled new potatoes. If I make an extra one we always fight over it the next day as it's one of those things that taste good on the day you make it and even better the next day.

What new recipes have you tried lately?


  1. Oh thank you - this sounds so simple but something a bit different. Also all my lot would like it so will give it a try.

  2. This looks and sounds really yummy. Thanks for the tip about scoring a border. I've not heard that before.


  3. Love how simple this is. Looks very tasty and the recipe could be tweaked to use up whatever is in the fridge :)
