The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Easy Prosciutto, Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Tart

Prosciutto, Caramelized Onion, & Goat Cheese Tart

This is a super easy appetizer, lunch or dinner. In my case it was a last minute dinner I threw together based on what I had on hand at home. Puff Pastry is a great thing to keep on hand in your freezer, as you can always throw together a last minute appetizer, breakfast pastry or tart, dessert, or use it for pot pies. Did I convince you to go out and buy some yet? 

The appetizer I made is very flexible, you can top it with any sort of cheese or vegetable depending on the season or what you have on hand. Although it's hard to beat the combination of prosciutto, caramelized onions (in brown sugar) and goat cheese!

Ingredients
1 sheet frozen puff pastry
1/2 large onion, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4-6 ounces goat cheese
8-10 slices fresh prosciutto

Directions
Thaw puff pastry, by setting on the counter for about 30 minutes or placing in refrigerator overnight. 

Once puff pastry is thawed, preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll out puff pastry onto lightly floured surface, then place onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Heat olive oil on stove top pan over medium high heat. Add onions and brown sugar and cook for about 8-12 minutes, stirring occassionally until onions are soft and caramelized.

While cooking onions score puff pastry by running a knife about a 1/2 inch to an inch from the outer edge to create a border. Then prick the center of the puff pastry with a fork multiple times.

Dot pastry with goat cheese, then spread the caramelized onions, and now you have an option. You can choose to cook your prosciutto (which I did) or you can wait and put it on after the puff pastry cooks. This is entirely up to you, I like it both ways. If you want to cook the prosciutto, place the slices on top of the onions now otherwise do it after you bake the tart. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until edges turn golden.

Enjoy!
