Sweet Honey Glazed Onion & Bacon Tart
For some, the Super Bowl is about football. It’s a culmination of wins and losses, sweat and tears, emotional highs and lows. For me, the Super Bowl is about finger foods, good company, and a few memorable commercials. But mostly, it’s about the food!
One appetizer that I made for this year’s game was a Sweet Honey Glazed Onion & Bacon Tart. For a healthy twist , I substituted regular bacon with turkey bacon and used fat free sour cream.

- 1 puff pastry sheet (found in the freezer section)
- 3 strips of bacon
- 1 large sweet onion
- 1-2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbs honey
- 1/2 c sour cream or crème fraiche
- 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the over to 375 degrees.
- Slice the onion into thin rings and break them apart. Coat them with olive oil, honey, and salt and pepper.
- Roast the onions until caramelized (about 45 minutes) turning them over with tongs a couple of times throughout.
- Cut the bacon slices into 1 x 0.25 inch strips and fry on stove top until crispy. Set aside.
- Roll out the puff pastry sheet, fold in the edges to form an outer crust, and press the crust with tines of a fork for decorative design.
- Mix the nutmeg and salt and pepper into the sour cream. Spread the mixture onto the puff pastry sheet.
- When onions have finished roasting, distribute them evenly over the sour cream. Do the same with the bacon strips and thyme leaves.
- Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees and bake the tart for 20-25 minutes (until crust rises and turns a golden brown.
