Peppercorn Harvest Asparagus and Onion Tart

Here’s a simple dish that will make a big statement on your holiday tables. Peppercorn Harvest cheddar, studded with red and green peppercorns, joins forces with roasted asparagus and bronzey sauteed onions for a savory tart that works just as well as an appetizer as it does as a main.

Peppercorn Harvest Asparagus and Onion Tart


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onions, cut into 1/4″ rings
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry (store bought), thawed
  • Olive oil
  • 1 ½ cup shredded Peppercorn Harvest, divided
  • 15-20 pieces of Asparagus, edges trimmed
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Remove puff pastry from freezer and let thaw on the counter. Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring often, until soft and golden bronze, roughly 15-20 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Unfold puff pastry and gentle press out creases. Score a 1-inch border around all edges.
  4. Layer the onion and shredded cheese onto the pastry, keeping the border free of ingredients. Add a row of asparagus spears, trimming to fit within the border. Drizzle olive oil over the top.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry and cheese is golden brown.
