Broccoli-Sweet Onion-Cheese Tart

May 21, 2013

This is a really fun and different recipe that I want to share with you this week.  I found it in the All You magazine and I made it for dinner.  This is a dish that tastes great with a salad on the side.  Why not give this one a try.  Please remember to let the tart stand for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.  Here is what my tart looked like.


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.

Thanks everyone and enjoy.
