Sausage Tart makes a really nice alternative to breakfast, or a tasty brunch. It’s a layered tart with a puff pastry base. Piled on top is a combination of caramelized onions, Gruyere cheese, sausage and greens. It’s so delicious, you should try it.
It is absolutely necessary to buy some really tasty sausages to make this tart. It doesn’t matter whether the sausages are made from pork, chicken, turkey or beef. Or try a mixture, just be sure that when cooked the result is a delicious mouthful of meat. Pick your favorite and follow the recipe.
You can use any greens really. I used what has recently been coined power greens – a mixture of baby chard, kale and spinach. If you decide to use more mature greens, they will likely need chopping up and more time in the pan until wilted. The caramelized onions add a sweet aromatic flavor. I used yellow onions as they have a very savory aroma.
I like to cut my Sausage Tart up into eight pieces, but it can be divided up into larger portions if you like.
What I like about this recipe the most is how quickly it comes together. There are a few steps, and more than one pan is necessary, but when it comes together this Sausage Tart is a thing to behold.
The kids will love it too, they can walk around with a slice while they wreak havoc in your home. Thankfully, the cheese on the top keeps the ingredients together, so hopefully you will only have on a few crumbs to sweep up.
Sausage Tart can also be served as an hors d’oeuvre at a cocktail party. Imagine your guests taking elegant bites out of a slice while sipping on a martini. Fabulous – right?
However you decide to serve this tasty tart, know that whomever gets their chops around it will enjoy it, and you will too.
