Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Tart

Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Tart

I was going over the recipes that I posted about last spring and I came across the asparagus and gruyere tart that I had enjoyed so much and it reminded me that I had wanted to try a mushroom version. These puff pastry based tarts are generally quick and easy to make and they have always been really good! I have been having fun playing with the toppings, both sweet and savoury and I was looking forward to the mushroom topping. For this version, I was thinking of slowly caramelized mushrooms and onions flavoured with some garlic and thyme and held together with some creamy and tangy blue cheese. Gorgonzola has to be my favorite blue cheese and it always goes well with mushrooms so it was my first choice for the this tart. Other than the time that it took to caramelize the onions and mushrooms, this tart came together easily and it turned out great! I just can't seem to get enough mushrooms and this tart certainly went a long way towards satisfying my mushroom cravings. I will definitely be making this again and again.
