This easy tart is a great appetizer or can be a side dish with a salad for a special lunch. If you are serving as an appetizer this will serve 6 to 8. If you are having this as a side dish it will serve 3 to 4.

This is a quick and easy app to fix if you have some unexpected guests during the holidays. During the first baking, the puff pastry "puffed." I just pressed down the middle.

I loved the mix of flavors. Next time I may try sprinkling some balsamic vinegar over it after it comes out of the oven. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

    Cook the bacon and drain on paper towels. Chop into bite size pieces. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
