Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 8 oz. bacon strips
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups fresh greens, chopped
  • 12 tomatoes, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Unfold puff pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  3. Pinch seams together and use a rolling pin to roll it out slightly larger.
  4. Score about an inch around the edge of the puff pastry creating the crust. Poke holes with a fork across the pastry, inside the crust.
  5. Brush the entire pastry with egg wash.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the puff pastry is dark golden brown on the top and bottom.
  7. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a parchment/foil lined baking sheet and bake it at the same time as the pastry until it’s crispy. 
  8. Use a spatula to gently press the center of the puff pastry down if it has bubbled up.
  9. Allow puff pastry and bacon to cool until you’re able to handle them. Crumble bacon.
  10. In a small bowl combine mayo, garlic powder, and balsamic vinegar until smooth and creamy.
  11. Spread half the balsamic aioli across the puff pastry, keeping it inside the crust.
  12. Top with half the crumbled bacon.
  13. Add chopped fresh greens along with the sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  14. Top with remaining bacon and drizzle with balsamic aioli. 
  15. Slice and enjoy!
