- 1 sheet of puff pastry
- 4-5 slices of Jamon Serrano and Jamon Iberico
- 100g of Cave Aged Roquefort
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Fresh arugula (optional, for garnish)
Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Prepare the Puff Pastry: Roll out the puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface and transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork to prick the pastry all over, leaving a border of about 1 inch around the edges.
Saute the Onions: In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced red onion and cook until it becomes soft and slightly caramelized, about 5 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside.
Assemble the Tart: Spread the sautéed onion and garlic mixture evenly over the puff pastry, leaving the border untouched. Crumble the Cave Aged Roquefort cheese evenly over the onions.
Add the Jamon: Lay the slices of Jamon over the cheese and onions. You can fold or scrunch the slices to create an attractive pattern.
Season and Bake: Sprinkle the fresh thyme leaves over the top, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
Bake the Tart: Place the tart in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown, the cheese has melted, and the Jamon has crisped up a bit.
Serve: Remove the tart from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. If desired, garnish with fresh arugula for a pop of color and freshness.
Slice and Enjoy: Slice your Ham and Blue Cheese Tart into squares or wedges and serve it warm. It's a delicious appetizer or main course that pairs wonderfully with a crisp salad or a glass of your favorite wine.
