Easy Cheese and Tomato Tarts

    30 min

    These super easy tarts are fantastically simple to prepare, and are always crowd pleasers. Remember that one sheet of pastry will give you 12 little tart cases. You can use your favourite cheese, or even a mixture of cheeses. Sprinkle with some dried herbs for extra flavour.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 sheet shortcrust pastry
    • 12 slices cheese
    • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
    • black pepper

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Using a pastry cutter, cut out rounds of shortcrust pastry and place in a muffin tin. I tend to wipe each mould with a little butter, but that isn't essential.
    2. Place a slice of cheese inside each pastry case, then top with a slice of tomato. Sprinkle the whole lot with some black pepper to taste.
    3. Bake in a 200 C / Gas 6 oven until cheese is bubbly and pastry is cooked, about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy warm.

    Something else. I used some finely grated parmesan cheese under the cheese slice, to give more flavour.  -  09 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Made it healthier. I made the shortcrust pastry with a margarine with 60% fat, which saved a little fat compared with using butter.  -  09 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I found this recipe very easy to make. I made the pastry myself, with a reduced fat margarine, to save a few calories! I used edam cheese, which can be a bit bland in baking, so I added some finely grated parmesan under the cheese slice. I shall definitely use this recipe again and again!
