If you are looking for a delicious brunch that is easy to whip up, I’ve got you covered with this Bacon, Bleu Cheese, and Potato Tart. Tangy bleu cheese paired with savory bacon and thinly sliced potatoes all wrapped in a golden flaky crust and drizzled with a sweet & spicy honey. Best paired with a mimosa (or two).
- Servings– 4
- Total Time– 1 hour
Potato Tart Ingredients:
- Puff Pastry– if frozen, allow to thaw before rolling out.
- Red Potato– thinly sliced. I mandoline slicer is great for this. It allows you to get a paper thin cut quickly without losing any finger tips.
- Red Onion
- Olive Oil
- Mascarpone Cheese– a soft, spreadable Italian cream cheese. This can also be substituted for a cream cheese such a Philadelphia.
- Bleu Cheese– for a bit of tang. If you aren’t a fan of bleu cheese, give goat cheese a try.
- Thick Cut Bacon
- Cream– to mix with the cream cheese to thin it out and to mix with the egg wash. I like to use half & half (a mix of milk and cream).
- Honey– to give contrast to all of the savory flavors.
- Hot Sauce– this will be used to mix the spicy honey.
- Chili Pepper Flakes
- Fresh Rosemary
- Salt & Pepper
How to Make Potato Tart:
- Prep Potatoes & Onions– Use a mandoline slicer to slice potatoes as thin as possible. Toss sliced potatoes with a bit of salt and 1 tbsp olive oil. In separate bowl, toss sliced onions with other tbsp olive oil and salt.
- Prepare Tart- Roll out thawed puff pastry. Transfer onto parchment lined baking sheet and poke center a few times with a fork. Mix mascarpone cheese and 2 tbsp of half & half until smooth. Stir in half of the bleu cheese crumbled and spread in a evenly over puff pastry leaving 3 inches away from edge. Top with sliced potatoes, onions, remaining blue cheese and rosemary. Crack a bit of pepper on top.
- Bake- Preheat oven to 425. Bake tart for 25-30 minutes. If edges begin to get too brown, cover them with foil and continue baking. Meanwhile, stir together honey, chili flakes and hot sauce. Once baked, slice tart, drizzle with honey, and bask in the deliciousness

- A standard puff pastry sheet is 9.75” X 10.5” X 3/16”.
- For a thinner tart, use a rolling pin to gently press and roll out puff pastry to add 1/2-1 inch to the sides, but be careful not to overwork dough or spread it too thin.
- For a larger tart, multiple puff pastry sheets may be used, gently pinched together at the seams so they do not split during baking.
