            Onion bacon and cream tart

            This delicious tart is a great alternative to a takeaway pizza and uses a combination of crème fraîche and fromage frais to provide a creamy taste that is smoother and lower in fat than cheese. To make it even healthier, switch your all-butter puff pastry base with a low-calorie option and serve with salad to feed four. It also takes just 30 minutes to prepare and cook.

            Ingredients

            3 medium egg yolks
            2 pinches sea salt
            320g pack ready-rolled all butter puff pastry
            1 red onion
            100g smoked streaky bacon
            150g fromage frais
            150g crème fraîche
            ¼ teaspoon nutmeg,freshly grated
            Milled black pepper
            Green salad to serve

            Method

            1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6. Line the oven tray with baking parchment.
            2. Mix the three egg yolks with a large pinch of salt.
            3. Unroll the pastry, prick with a fork and place on the prepared oven tray. Using the tip of a knife, mark a line around the pastry, 1 centimetre inside the edge. Lightly brush with some of the salted egg yolk mixture, place in the oven on the lowest shelf and bake for 10 minutes.
            4. Meanwhile, finely slice the onion, and fry the bacon in a large frying pan over a high heat for 2 minutes. Mix the fromage frais, crème fraîche, egg yolks and nutmeg with a large pinch of salt and around 10 turns of the pepper mill, to suit your taste.
            5. Remove the puff pastry from the oven and turn up the temperature to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas mark 7.
            6. Press the centre of the pastry, inside the knife markings, with the back of a spoon to create a contained space for the topping. Spread the fromage frais mixture over the recessed surface.
            7. Arrange the sliced onion on top, then the cooked bacon.
            8. Bake for 10 minutes on the lowest shelf, until the topping is set and the bacon is crisp. Cut into 4 and serve with a salad.

            Tip

            For best result and a crispier base, use the conventional oven setting.
