Potato Bacon Cheddar Tart
When I read about Brilynn's (of Jumbo Empanadas) post about her Potato Bacon Cheddar Tart, I just knew that I would be making it soon. My husband is, to put it mildly, obsessed with bacon. I don't get it. He's an athletic guy, with low cholesterol, who eats bacon like crazy. And my brother is no different. The two of them must go through pounds of bacon each week. What's worse is that the disease has spread. I now believe that everything is better with bacon (preferably bacon and cheese). So, a potato bacon cheddar tart was right up our alley.
I followed her directions, but I added layers of sliced shallots to mine. I also took put it under the broiler for 2 minutes, uncovered, to crisp up the bacon a bit more. 3 hours later, delicious. For the recipe and Brilynn's original post click here.
