Let’s get started with some delicious tomatoes! I prefer them on the firm side.
Slice them and place them on a baking sheet if you have one handy. If not, you can just roast them on the sheet with a drop of oil.
I have a traditional tart pan but if you don’t have one, you can use any round pan you have handy.
You’ll want to julienne your onions.
Some recipes call for adding chives or green onions with the cream cheese but I added some Italian seasoning instead. Make sure to mix well until your cream cheese is a spreadable consistency.
The onions need to be a golden brown color so be sure to caramelize them well.
You can either make your own dough or use the prepackaged type.
Carefully spread the cream cheese mix over the dough.
Layer your grilled tomatoes over the cream cheese mix.
Then layer the onions.
We love cheese so we added a lot. That’s up to you.
We also love the crispy edges – yum!
Let it cool before removing it from the tart pan base.
Doesn’t that look amazing? You get layer upon layer of delicious flavors.
I knew this was a hit the minute I put it in my mouth. The leftovers are even better!
Paired with a side salad, it’s perfect for dinner or lunch!
