Caramelized Onion and Canadian Bacon Tart

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2009

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

Ingredients

  • All-Purpose Light Piecrust dough
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 cups thinly sliced Spanish onion (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup water, divided
  • 1/2 cup diced Canadian bacon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground whole nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix (such as Pepperidge Farm)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Jarlsberg cheese

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Remove 2 sheets plastic wrap from All-Purpose Light Piecrust. Fit dough, plastic wrap side up, into a 9-inch round tart pan coated with cooking spray. Remove top sheets of plastic wrap. Press dough into bottom and up sides of pan; fold excess crust back in, and press to reinforce sides. Pierce bottom and sides of dough lightly with a fork; freeze 10 minutes. Line bottom of dough with a piece of foil; arrange pie weights or dried beans on foil. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

3. Reduce oven temperature to 375°.

4. Remove weights and foil. Brush dough evenly with mustard. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until done. Cool completely on a wire rack.

5. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sugar; reduce heat, and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/2 cup water; cook 25 minutes or until onion is light brown and liquid thickens, adding remaining 1/4 cup water, 1 tablespoon at a time, as necessary. Remove from heat; stir in bacon, parsley, 1 teaspoon pepper, and next 4 ingredients (through nutmeg).

6. Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH for 30 seconds or until butter melts. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, stirring to combine. Combine butter mixture, remaining 3/4 teaspoon pepper, stuffing mix, and broth, stirring until moist.

7. Sprinkle cooled crust with cheese. Spoon onion mixture over cheese; top with stuffing mixture. Place tart on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut into wedges.
