  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 8 oz blue cheese crumbled
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt see note
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp white wine
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese


  • Pre-heat oven to 425°
  • Place puff pastry in a well-oiled pie dish and top with the blue cheese
  • Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan on medium heat
  • Add the sliced onions, salt, pepper and thyme, sauté for 3 minutes
  • Add the sugar and the wine and sauté 2 minutes
  • Add the balsamic vinegar and sauté 3 minutes
  • Pour the sauted onion mixture over the blue cheese and fold the edges of the pastry over the blue cheese and onions. Spray the edges of the tart with non-stick spray and sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the top.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, cut and serve.


Salt: Some blue cheeses (especially lesser-quality ones) can be quite salty. So go easy on the salt.
This is just one of my fall savory tarts. Try Gruyere, goat, or white cheddar cheese. Sautéed plums, fig jam, roasted butternut squash, mushrooms, or Cipollini onions all make great fillings.
Puff pastry dough is one option, but it’s getting a little pricey these days. Make your own savory pie crust (see my savory heirloom tomato pie recipe) or try bite-sized, pre-made phyllo tartlet shells sold in the freezer section at most grocery stores.
