Easy Tart Recipe

Does anyone else immediately want to see sunnier skies and warmer temps when the holidays are over? Apart from that peppermint obsession I mentioned yesterday, I am full on ready to skip over winter and head straight into spring. Bwah! But I’m guessing Mother Nature has other plans, so I will have to amuse myself with sunny tasting recipes for the time being.

In case you didn’t know already, I’m part Italian. And with that part of me comes a deep love for food. I think of celebrating any occasion, such as a brand spankin’ new year, as the perfect excuse to whip up some delicious food and, in this case, I made a tart that I know all my friends and family will simply adore!

This savory tart is filled with tasty ingredients like onions, garlic, tomatoes and feta cheese and will surely brighten up any winter table. Plus, this easy tart recipe uses pre-made puff pastry and takes very little time  to prepare which means you have more time for mimosas for instance. Haha!

• Mix the beaten eggs, salt, pepper, heavy cream in a bowl.

• Over medium heat, heat olive oil and sautee onions for about 7-10 minutes until softened. Add the minced garlic for one minute and remove from heat. Add to egg mixture and stir.

• Pour the egg mixture over the puff pastry and drop in the crumbled feta.

• Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes and then top with the half moon tomato slices in a pretty pattern. Next add the basil leaves and a few crumbles of feta to the top as well. Bake for 20-30 more minutes until center is set, checking to make sure the crust isn’t over browning. If it is you can cover with foil until its finished baking.
