  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • Flour, for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Honeycrisp apples – peeled, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola or other blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts


Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Gently roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface. With a sharp knife, score a 1/4-inch boarder around the whole sheet (do not cut through the pastry). Put pastry on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate while preparing filling.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in apples, honey, vinegar and water. Simmer until apples are just tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Spread apple filling over puff pastry and bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and walnuts on top and return to the oven. Bake until pastry is golden and puffed around the edges, another 10 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut into squares; serve warm.
