Goats Cheese & Bacon Tartlets

When there's not much in the fridge for lunch I like to make these quick and easy tartlets. They are seriously delicious and so versatile, as you can add any toppings, but my favourite is Goats cheese. The combination of tangy saltiness lends itself so well to the sweetness of the caramelised onion and the smoky taste of the bacon. Think you don't like Goats cheese? This may change your mind. I used mainly leftovers lurking in the freezer.
Puff pastry- I used a shop bought block but the ready rolled works well too.
Goats cheese,
Bacon bits(leftovers) Tomatoes. I used cherry but any will do, and some mixed frozen peppers.
You can tailor this to suit you and your families tastes by swapping out the Goats cheese for any cheese, including Cheddar, add salsa instead of the onions or cooked ham instead of bacon etc. You can get 8/10 tarts, depending on the size of your squares/rectangles or you could make 1 whole tart and cut into slices once cooked. The choice is yours. Why not give these a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback. E x
