BROCCOLI-SWEET ONION-CHEESE TART
Yield: Serves 6
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 30 - 35 minutes
4 slices bacon
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 1/2 cups cheese cracker crumbs ( Such as Cheez-It, about 1/2 of a 13.7-oz. box) (If you do not want to use Cheez-It for the crust you can use a pie crust instead)
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack
3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
2 cups small broccoli florets
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. fresh chopped thyme
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 Tbsp. fat in skillet; discard remaining fat. Crumble bacon. Sauté onion in skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add garlic; sauté until onion is tender, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Gently mix cracker crumbs, butter and 1/2 cup hot water. Mist a 9-inch tart pan with cooking spray; place on baking sheet. Press crumb mixture into the pan.
Sprinkle bacon over crust. Combine cheeses; spread 1/2 cup over bacon. Spread onion mixture and broccoli on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Whisk milk, mustard, flour and thyme; pour on top.
Bake until tart is golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
I am always trying to find different recipes to make for my family and this recipe has a different kind of crust. The crust is made with Cheez-Its, for a real cheese taste. If you try out this recipe let me know if you and your family liked it.
