  • 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).
  • Egg
  • 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
