Edit: I knew there was a reason for the title of my blog. Everyone else seems to have mixed it up in one way or another. I stuck closer to the original recipe than most people, which is strange because I suck at following recipes. Go to the barefoot bloggers site (link below) to see what everyone else did.
This post is pretty incoherent. That's your warning. I started it and continued probably 3 different times and now I just want it up so I don't miss the posting date and I'm tired of writing. Your fault for reading it. Don't blame me.
The second recipe of this month for the Barefoot Bloggers was Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart. It was chosen by Anne of Anne Strawberry. I actually made it last weekend though I almost forgot to finish my post!
I opted to make it into square pastries. Who cuts out circles and throws away those scraps of puff pastry? It would have been throwing out half of it! I cut each sheet of puff pastry into 4 squares and then did everything like in the recipe. Then when they came out I cut each square into 4 again so that I had nice bite size pieces. Besides which I like squares.
Apparently I've become really sensitive to certain flavors. I used a total of about 5 oz of goat cheese for the 8 tarts and I found it a little strong but other than that these are easy and tasty. But I seem to always think there is too much goat cheese whenever I get anything with goat cheese at a restaurant so I guess it's probably me and not the recipe. Though after it cooled and it was close to room temp the goat cheese did not seem so overwhelming.
These were incredibly popular at work. I know, no kidding, guys prefer savory to sweet but whatever. I like sweet. Though these were good too. And the onions gave it lots of sweetness.
I would chop the onion next time rather than just thin strips. I ended up with some stringiness in the onions which made serving them slightly difficult. Some people might say that's operator error but whatever.
