  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large sweet onions, halved and sliced
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons honey Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onions and apples; cook and stir until tender, 12-15 minutes. Stir in walnuts, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  2. On 2 parchment-lined baking sheets, roll out each pastry into a 14x12-in. rectangle. Place half the onion mixture down the center of each rectangle; top with cheese and bacon.
  3. On each long side, cut eight 1-3/4-in.-wide strips. Starting at 1 end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; pinch ends to seal. Whisk egg with water; brush over braids. Bake until golden brown, 25-28 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
