Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 teaspoons drippings. Add the onions, shallots and sugar to the pan; cook and stir over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Cut into three 9-in. x 3-in. rectangles. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking pan. Brush dough with egg white; top with onion mixture and goat cheese.
  4. Bake at 400° for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cut each rectangle into four appetizers. Yield: 1 dozen.
