tomato tart with a baked egg


Ever go to a practically empty fridge and wonder what you can toss together for supper?  I like to keep a box of puff pastry on hand, and almost always have tomatoes, eggs and cheese.  Dom, at Belleau Kitchen, inspired this quick, spur of moment little summer meal.  Yum.

1 roll ready made puff pastry
1 package of vine-ripened tomatoes
5 tablespoons strong cheese
1 egg
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
rosemary (I didn't have fresh on hand, so used dry)

Slice the tomatoes and lay them in an oven-proof roasting pan, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and roast for 20 minutes at 325.  Roll out the pastry, score a line around the edge, about an inch from the end. Grate cheese on top, add roasted tomatoes, and crack an egg on top.  Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes at 375.  I sprinkled Parmesan cheese on each slice before serving.

  2. Yes, I do have these ingredients on hand, and I just may make this for my daughter and me for tonight's supper a deux!

    I love meals I can pull out of the pantry -- always think of them as "free" meals.

    This looks lovely -- beautiful to look at and Mmmmm.... would be delicious.

    Thanks for posting!

  4. Oh yummy! My usual standby is a bunch of leftovers thrown into a large bowl with fresh spinach and cheese and possibly hot sauce or tomato sauce. Then nuke it for 3 minutes on high with garlic salt. EVERY time is different, but this looks oh so much better!

  11. this sounds delicious all except the egg. And I bought a box of that pastry stuff because you mentioned it in another recipe. I have never used it but may try it now. !

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yum! I have someone here who would definitely try this...I think!
    And I hae a rosemary bush outside, so can even do that. And eggs and cheese are always in my fridge too, but I need to stock up on puff pastry.

  13. Thank you Tess,
    We guys can only say yummy,yummy but not bake them. But I'm ok with boiling some water and having a half-boiled. Or if adventurous that morning even treat myself with a sunny-side up!

  17. A quick glance and I thought I saw waffles but I was wrong...this is so much better...roasted tomatoes! I will give it a try!

    ReplyDelete
  18. That looks good [minus the egg :)]; then again, that might be a nice change. Have a good week.

  19. Rustic delights! I do something similar with sun dried tomatoes with garlic and olives. Cheese of choice is Buffalo Mozzarella!...Mmmmmmm! Nice one Mate!

    Lately, anything with a fried egg on top is calling my name. I'm a bit obsessed, actually.

  22. What a lovely inventive idea from such a few ingredients. Made my mouth water.

  23. My dear Tess, that is my usual style of cooking . . . I see what I can find and go from there. Don't laugh, as you see from yours, they are often the simplest and best meals.

  24. my clever daughter makes a breakfast version of this Tess with asparagus and proscuitto. It's a wonderful (and impressive) thing to serve to guests!
    You (and she) have inspired me to keep a box of puff pastry in the freezer too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That looks good Tess. Served with a big plate of chips (our chips = your fries : but better)

    ReplyDelete
  26. ...and fries must be accompanied by a big puddle of ketchup!

  34. Oh My God!!! How did I nearly miss this post Tess!?!?!? Thank you for the mention ( i'd been wondering why my followers had gone up exponentially with Americans over the last day or two...) and WOW that looks good! It really is such a simple and satisfying treat. I'm so chuffed you made it and liked it! xxx

  40. Wouldn't you know it? I have been away for a long time and let me return and you tempt me once again with food. I have missed your food.

    Looks like you have been a busy gal. Me too, but lately for my city. I am now a free-agent; no more photo editors to answer to (I retired last June) and no more city events to cover (I retired again).

    Good to see that Willow Manor is flourishing. I look forward to more visits. Always a pleasure.
