Shallot confit tart

Shallot confit tart

This savoury tart is full of flavour: the thin puff-pastry case is filled with lightly grilled slices of ham and a mixture of cream and Époisses cheese, topped with a layer of oven-cooked shallot confit.

This tart can be eated hot, of course, but is also good cold or reheated until just warmed through.

Remarks

You can use onions instead of shallots in this recipe, but do remember that onions have quite a sweet flavour when prepared as a confit.

If you don't have puff pastry, use shortcrust pastry instead, though the effect will be less refined.

You can also use a different cheese instead of Époisses, but try to opt for one with a similar soft past, such as Roblochon.
