Wow, this caramelized onion and goat cheese tart is quite tasty. It's rich with a fantastic combination of flavors. Adding thyme to the caramelized onions gives the onions an aromatic sweetness that's well complemented by the tangy goat cheese and salty, crunchy bacon. The texture and butteriness of the puff pastry puts this tart over the top. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
