Learn how to make a great Thanksgiving Appetizer. My Goat Cheese Tartlets with caramelized onions will be the first things to disappear! Includes video below!
There’s quite like greeting your guests with a warm hors d’oeuvre, especially around the holidays. These are seriously addicting and are always the first things to go at any party. They also go great with a glass of chilled champagne! Happy Thanksgiving!
How to make goats cheese tarts?
You’ll first begin by sautéing up some red onions in a skillet under wilted and caramelized. Then add some balsamic vinegar and fresh rosemary and deglaze.
Then cut out your store-bought puffed pastry with a small cookie cutter. One that is at least 3 inches in size.
Fit the pastry circles into a non-stick mini muffin tin, fill with crumbled goat cheese, and top with the caramelized onions, then bake!
Can you make Goat Cheese Tartlets ahead of time?
Yes, of course! This is why I love this recipe so much. All you have to do is make the tarts, assemble and keep in the tin, cover and refrigerate. Then 5 minutes before guests arrive, heat and serve! Or you could freeze them a week before, right in the tin and make it even easier!
