Camembert tart

Camembert tart

Do you know Camembert? If you don’t, it is a stinky french cheese but I just ADORE it. I get that some people can’t stand it because it is not a mild flavor but if you like stinky cheese, then you’re going to love this recipe. Bacon cooked with lots of onions… Lots of cheese! And a little bit of cream for some good measure.

You could make your own dough but I cheated this time and used store bought because I didn’t have that much time! I served it with a big old bowl of greens and a green beans salad, perfect dinner. Very gourmet but also sort of light with all the green sides!

Camembert tart (serves 3-4) :

  • 1 short pastry circle
  • 125g unpasteurized camembert
  • 100g diced bacon
  • 1 big onion
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • A pinch of black pepper

Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.

Slice the onion finely.

In a pan, add the bacon bits and onions with no additional fat. Cook until onions are tender.

In a small bowl, add the sour cream, mustard and pepper.

Spread the sour cream mixture onto the dough leaving spaces around the edges to fold it later.

Add the bacon and onions on top of the sour cream layer. Add slices of camembert on top.

Fold the edges on top of the ingredients.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and the cheese well melted.
