Bake Along #62 is to bake a savory pie or tart. I love to bake along but too lazy to make the pie or tart from scratch. Here comes the cheat way or should I say the convenient way!? Use ready made frozen pastry, and a ready rolled one too! How simple and fast can this be? 30 minutes! 10 minutes of preparation and 20 minutes of baking. Viola! A nicely baked savory tart, pretty to look at, and good to eat.
The base of this tart is sour cream,grated cheddar cheese(can use Gouda, Swiss Gruyere )and egg. This is the basic base of my quickie tart. The rest is up to you, whatever you have and like.
Ham, Cherry tomato and Cheese Tart
Recipe source: Own
one 9" x 6"
1 sheet of ready rolled short crust pastry
3 pcs of square ham
15 cherry tomatoes
50g grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tablespoon light sour cream
Black pepper and salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 220C. Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper. Cut one pastry sheet to the size you want. Cut remaining into four strips and place on the four corners to create a border.
- Whisk sour cream, egg and cheese until well combined. Stir in the cheese. Spread mixture over the pastry leaving a 1-2cm border around the edge. Arrange the ham and tomato half, cut-side up. Sprinkle some thyme leaves.
- Brush the edges of the pastry with the remaining beaten egg. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Top with thyme.
