Some days, you just want a quick dinner. But it doesn’t mean that it won’t be a fine dinner. And with fall being a week away, I’m still in the mood for Barbecue flavors. So today I’m making a tart with Barbecue sauce. A BBQ Gorgonzola tart, more precisely.
For this recipe, I used this puff pastry for two reasons: first, I needed a light crust to balance the sweetness of the barbecue sauce and the red onions. I also didn’t want to use a tart pan and the puff pastry is perfect for that, with the edges naturally rising around the filling while baking.
Now, let’s talk Gorgonzola cheese. I would never have thought that it’s a pairing that works, but it really does. The first time I had to try it was on a pizza that my daughter ordered from our favorite pizza place. I was pleasantly surprised and it’s always a disappointment when they make it with not enough Gorgonzola. It takes away the sweetness of the barbecue sauce and gives it a much needed saltiness. Trust me, if you don’t add it, it will taste too sweet!
I like to add Gorgonzola cheese in the salad I made to complete my meal. My recommendation this time is to avoid too much sweetness to your salad. I avoid adding fruits or even corn. You want all the sweetness to come from the tart. Oh, and did I mention that you’ll be ready to eat in 30 minutes? And if I can give you one last piece of advice, double the recipe. This tart is so light, you’ll be like my kids, frustrated that you didn’t make more. Enjoy!
