There’s nothing about this tart that isn’t wonderful. To make it, I simply poured some popover batter into a baking dish, and covered it with crisp bacon and sweetly-caramelized onion. As the tart bakes, the crust puffs up and surrounds the sumptuous filling. Are you drooling yet? Here’s the easy step-by-step:
First, grab 6 strips of bacon, and turn them into matchsticks, or what the French call “lardons.” To do this, make a stack of 3 bacon strips…And cut the stack crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide pieces. Do the same with the remaining 3 strips of bacon, and set aside.
But we are not here to discuss my kitchen attire, no matter how stylish it may be. Our mission today is a sexy savory tart!
Melt some unsalted (and preferably homemade) butter in the hot skillet…
This next step is easy indeed: center the oven rack, and preheat the oven to 425°F.
No picture of these next steps: Pop the baking dish into the preheated oven for 10 minutes, and let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
Return the dish to the oven, and bake until the batter puffs and browns — about 30 minutes.
Cut one small square from the tart, and present it to your dear friend Brenda for taste-testing. Watch Brenda have a mouth orgasm as she bites through the crackling crust, and follows through to the crisp bacon and sweetly-caramelized onions.
If you’re like me, you’ll hog the rest of the tart for yourself. It’s delicious with a side of Cabernet Sauvignon.
If you’re not like me, you can serve the tart as a main course for dinner, along with some salad greens and the obligatory red wine. Or, just cut the tart into small squares, and serve them for chic appetizers during a cocktail party. Yes — this is a multi-occasion tart!
In any event, please let me know if you’ll give this sumptuousness a try. Again, it’s a breeze to make. And it’s screamingly delicious to eat.
