PEAR, ONION AND ROQUEFORT TART

The ingredients for this tart may seem strange, but they match so much and give a really impressive result!

Ingredients

For dough:
  • 325 gr flour
  • 175 gr butter, in small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 30 gr water cold
  • 3 gr salt
  • 3 gr sugar
For the filling:
  • 5 baby potatoes
  • 1 pear, cut into cubes
  • 1 onion, cut into very small cubes
  • 1 leek, cut into very thin slices
  • 100 gr bacon, finely chopped
  • 100 gr roquefort cheese
  • Olive oil for sautéing

Instructions

For dough:
  • Add the flour, butter, salt and sugar to the bowl mixer with the feather.
  • Add the egg and water and beat until a homogeneous dough is created.
  • Cover the dough with a membrane and let it rest in the refrigerator for one hour before using it. (If needed, put it in the freezer for up to 3 months.)
  • Place the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper and open it with the roller, starting from the center of the dough and pressing successively in all directions (up, down, right and left) until a round, uniform sheet about ½ cm thick (should be larger than the tart pan). - Alternatively we can open the dough into the tart pan with our fingers.
  • Prepare the dough in a prepared tart pan, making sure it is touching all the points, bottom and side.
  • Pass the roller over the pan to cut the dough that is left over its side walls.At this stage we can place the dough in the freezer for a few hours or keep it for at least 1 month.
To pre-cook the dough for salty tart:
  • Cover the dough surface with baking paper and enough beans (to avoid bubbling when baking).
  • Bake at 170ºC for about 15 minutes, remove it from the oven, remove the beans and bake for another 10 minutes until the dough is brown everywhere.
For the filling:
  • Wash the potatoes well and boil until they are al dente.
  • Then remove from the water, let it cool and cut into slices.
  • Saute onion in pan with leek.
  • Once they get color, add the potatoes, the pear and the bacon.
  • Slow cook for 10 minutes and remove from the heat.
  • Add the cheese cut into pieces and mix
  • Fill the tart we have already prepared.
  • Bake in a well preheated oven at 180 ° C for 30 minutes.
