(That’s my attempt at making a pie look like a tart)
This was a great recipe and although it was easy, it took me a while. I don’t know why either… My pie (tart) crust took no time at all because my husband got me a food processor for my birthday and it takes about a minute to make pie crust with it!! Best invention ever, even if you only use it for pie crust! (Oh sorry, I mean tart crust.)
Anyway, the link to the recipe is here. Basically you cut bacon into 1/2″ pieces and fry them.
You fry them over medium high heat for about 8 minutes & then add some thyme (tablespoon) & salt (pinch). Then you reduce the heat to medium low and cook them until they’re really brown and soft (the recipe says 20 minutes but I took them off the heat before that because I was getting scared they would burn) (and actually before that I added two tablespoons of butter for the same reason!).
While that’s going on, take a cup of whole milk ricotta & an egg yolk, a little thyme, a pinch of salt & 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and mix them all together. Spread that mixture evenly across the tart shell.
Then you bake it at 350° for 30-40 minutes (until the edge of the mixture starts to brown).
You might have to double check the recipe for the baking part because I haven’t put it in the oven yet so I might not have memorized that exactly… But I can’t wait! I love bacon & onion together… And ricotta too? Oh man, this is gonna be good!!!!
I was too excited to share this so that’s why I’m posting even before I’ve tried it. How could it be bad?!?
