As the holidays are coming up I love finding new recipes that will work well for holiday parties. Ben is Jewish and I am not, so we celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah, otherwise known as Christmukkah in our house. So we get to have all the fun and learn about both holiday traditions. Anyways as I was looking for some holiday recipes I stumbled upon this one and wanted to try it out, in case I want to make it next month. After making it and eating it, I have to say this holiday appetizer is both sweet and tart and overall a party in your mouth! I think the tart pomegranate seeds balance really well with the sweetness of the onions and caramelized onions. Using puff pastry also made this recipe a heck of a lot easier! Enjoy!
Caramelized Onion Tart with Apples
Adapted from Real Simple
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium onions, sliced
2 red apples (such as Braeburn or Gala), cut into small pieces
Kosher salt and black pepper
2 sheets frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce package), thawed
1/2 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
Heat oven to 400º F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the apples, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until just tender, 2 minutes.
Place each sheet of pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Spread with the crème fraîche, leaving a ½-inch border. Top with the onion mixture and bake until the pastry is crisp and browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Once out of the oven garnish with pomegranate seeds. Cut into pieces before serving.
