Last night I made this Beef and Cabbage Tart. It was very easy and a hit with everyone. I got the idea from a post of Sweet Bee. Her recipe called for ground beef, mushrooms, and red onion. I didn't have any mushrooms, so I sautéed a pound of ground beef, along with some thinly sliced red onion wedges, some diced bell pepper, and about a quarter of a head of cabbage, thinly sliced. I seasoned the mixture with some pepper and Italian seasonings (although I think next time I may use seasonings of a more central or eastern European nature, like thyme and rosemary).
Meanwhile, I had thawed a package of frozen puff pastry and laid it out in a large square on a baking sheet, and cut some of the puff pastry into strips to lay along each edge, to build the edge up. I pre-baked this for about 10 minutes at 430 degrees, then filled it with the meat mixture, sprinkled some mozzarella cheese and bleu cheese on top, and finished baking for another 10 minutes.
One could easily use any tart or pizza dough, or even crescent rolls for the base. Whenever I make any kind of savory tart or pizza I pre bake the pastry for about half the cooking time, then put on the toppings. This keeps the pastry dough from getting too soggy from the filling.
