Caramelized Fennel and Gorgonzola Tartlets

Stefan's Gourmet Blog


Sandra always publishes tasty recipes on her blog Please Pass The Recipe. Recently, her blue cheese tart with caramelized fennel caught my attention. I had never thought of combining caramelized fennel with blue cheese, but I love both of them and immediately understood the combination would be a winner. For a dinner party I made single-portion tartlets rather than one big tart, simply because it is easier to serve and looks prettier. I caramelized the fennel by long and slow cooking to let its flavor shine instead of using sugar and balsamic vinegar. And instead of shortcrust (with a lot of butter) I used Italian-style dough for savory tarts that only uses a bit of olive oil and is very easy to work with. The result was outstanding and I’ll definitely make these again. Thanks for the inspiration, Sandra!



For 4 servings/tartlets (you could also make one large tart)
