Potato, Onion & Bacon Tart recipe from WVIZ/PBS Cooks! H is for Home Cooking cookbook.

Ingredients & Directions

1 pound Puff Pastry (from the freezer section at the grocery store or homemade)
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
2 medium onions, julienned
3/4 stick of butter
3/4 cup Gruyere, grated
10 baby Yukon Gold potatoes, roasted, cooled, sliced 1/4” thick; seasoned with salt & pepper
10 Applewood Smoked bacon slices, cooked until almost crisp
1 ounce thyme, picked fresh
kosher salt & fresh gound black pepper

Caramelize onions immediately seasoning with salt & pepper.  Before removing from the heat, add half of the thyme.  Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Let cool.  In a food processor puree the cheese, walnuts and half of the onions until combined but not smooth.  Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Roll the puff pastry to 3/16” and pierce well with a fork.  Cut into desired shape and spread the cheese mixture in a thin even layer across the dough. 
Spread with onions and arrange a layer of potatoes and finally the bacon slices.  Put on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake until the dough is golden brown:
approximately 15 minutes at 375 F.  After removing from the oven, sprinkle the remaining thyme and immediately cut and serve.
