2 pie crusts (homemade or store bought)
2 C mashed potatoes, warmed up
3/4 C sour cream
3/4 C sautéed onions
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
1 green onion, green parts only, chopped
Preheat oven to 375℉. Prepare tart pans by lightly spraying with cooking spray. I used two
4 1/4x14" tart pans. You could also use two 8" or 9" tart pans.
To start, in a sauté pan, cook six slices of bacon until crispy. Drain bacon on paper towels and crumble. Set aside.
Next, pour out almost all of the bacon grease from the sauté pan, place pan back on the burner and cook your onions until soft and translucent. Set aside.
Now, roll out your pie crust and place in your tart pans. Prick the dough with a fork and place tart pans in the oven to par-bake the dough. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and allow dough to rest for about 5 minutes.
All the prep work is done, now you're ready to start assembling your tarts. Start with your mashed potato layer. Spread 1 cup of mashed potato onto each pie crust. Next, spoon on and smooth out your sour cream over the mashed potato layer - dividing the sour cream between both tart pans. Sprinkle on your onions and bacon. Finally, add your shredded cheddar cheese and dash on some salt and pepper.
Place tart pans back into the oven for 15 minutes. When ready, remove tarts from the oven and shower each pan with chopped green onion. Serve your potato tart as a side dish or as the main dish with a side salad. Enjoy!!!
