Recipe of the week – Tarts

Leave a comment

Hello food…..

These are really good to have as a starter, or just as little snacks. You can make a supply and have them as canapés. The beauty of these is that you can literally put any flavour you want. I’m putting onions and thyme, but the rest of the mixture is a base. So put anything to replace the onions and thyme and you have a custom tart!

What do I need?
2 Portions of Shortcrust Pastry
10g Butter
2 White Onions
10g Thyme
100ml Double Cream
1 Egg
30g Parmesan
Salt and Pepper

How do I do it?

1. Roll pastry out and cut into small discs.
2. Place in greased ‘fairy cake’ moulds.
Tart bases
3. Place baking beads on the pastry and back for 10 minutes at Gas Mark 5 (180˚ c) until dry.
4. Meanwhile melt butter in frying pan and slice onions thinly.
5. Cook onions and thyme in butter with a sprinkle of salt until onions are softened.
6. Place onions in pastry mould.
7. Whisk together cream, egg, salt, pepper and parmesan until smooth.
8. Pour over onion in pastry mould.
9. Place in oven at gas Mark 7 (220˚c) for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown on top.
10.You can eat straight away, or cool them and eat later, and then heat them up again if wanted. Make sure they are thoroughly cooked through if you reheat them though!
