  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic in olive oil
  • 16 slices precooked bacon
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • Sliced scallions, for garnish
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish


  • 1
    Heat oven to 375ºF. Line a 12-inch pizza pan with parchment paper.
  • 2
    Roll each piece of puffed pastry to 1/4-inch thick. Use kitchen shears to cut off outer edges of squares, creating two large rounds. Place one on parchment-lined pizza pan.
  • 3
    Spread garlic across the top of the piece on the pizza pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar cheese.
  • 4
    Lay bacon strips around the pastry, with each connecting in the centre to create “rays”.
  • 5
    Cover with second round of puffed pastry.
  • 6
    Place a 2-inch bowl upside down in the middle of the puffed pastry. Starting on the outside edge of tart, cut a line between each piece of bacon, until cut reaches edges of bowl. Repeat, cutting tart into 16-24 strips or “rays”.
  • 7
    Remove bowl. Gently place your finger at the top of one ray, press it down to hold it in place, then gently twist several times to the right. Repeat with adjacent ray, twisting it to the left. Pinch two pieces together to form several “petals”.
  • 8
    Brush top of pastry with beaten egg, sprinkle with dried onion and sesame seeds.
  • 9
    Bake for 30 minutes, then top with remaining cheese. Return to oven and cook 10 minutes more or until cheese is melted and pastry is golden brown.
  • 10
    Garnish with green onions and parsley, if desired.
