Ingredients for this savory tartlet recipe

When the hens are a-layin’ it’s time to start planning meals that will utilize lots of eggs. This little tartlet fits the bill, using five eggs for six tartlets.

You can use jarred roasted red peppers, but if you’re growing peppers there’s no reason you can’t make your own. Here’s how to roast red peppers at home.

[Hot tip: Make more roasted peppers than you’ll need and you’ll be ready to whip up a batch of this roasted red pepper hummus for snacking!]
Be sure to use Grandma’s pie crust recipe for a tender, flaky crust. Note that this recipe makes a double pie crust and will be enough for twelve tartlets. You can halve the pie crust recipe, divide it in two and freeze half, or double the remaining ingredients for these savory tartlets and make twelve instead of six.

Feta cheese is readily available at most grocery stores, but if you’d like to try your hand at making your own, it’s not hard. Here’s a feta cheese recipe to try.

Making roasted red pepper and feta tartlets

The first step is to make the tartlet crusts. These are pre-baked, and then filled with the eggs and vegetables. This savory tartlet recipe uses a single pie crust, which is enough for the bottom of a single pie pan, like you’d use for making pumpkin pie.

To make the mini crusts, you’ll divide a single pie crust recipe into six equally-sized balls, roll out small circles of dough, and press into tart pans. You can use a muffin tin if you don’t have tart pans. You won’t have the pretty fluted edges, but they’ll taste just as great!

Trim excess dough at the top edge of the pans and bake.

Once the crusts are baking, you can start sautéing the veggies.

Assembling the savory tartlets

Divide the feta cheese between the pre-baked tart crusts, and then do the same with the sautéed veggies.

Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and bake.

You’ll find it’s easiest to place the tartlet crusts on a baking sheet. This will allow you to move them easily into the preheated oven without spilling.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Grease the inside of six mini tart pans.
  3. Divide the pie crust into six balls; roll each on a floured surface.
  4. Line the mini tart pans with the pie crust, poking a few holes in the bottom of each crust with a fork. This prevents air bubbles from popping up when pre-baking. 
  5. Bake the mini tart pans in the oven for five minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  6. Place a tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the chopped onion until soft and translucent.
  7. Add the roasted red peppers to the skillet; stir until heated through.
  8. Divide the feta cheese between the tart pans.
  9. Place a layer of the cooked vegetables over top of the feta cheese, dividing them equally.
  10. Whisk together the eggs and pepper in a bowl or measuring cup with a spout.
  11. Add thyme to the egg mixture; stir well.
  12. Pour the egg mixture into each of the six mini tart pans. Do not overfill.
  13. Reduce the oven setting to 325 degrees. Bake the savory tartlets for 30 minutes.
  14. Remove from the oven. Serve warm with fresh herbs as garnish or refrigerate and serve later at room temperature.

Notes

If you don't have mini tartlet pans, you can use muffin tins for this savory tartlet recipe. Regular size muffin tins or mini muffin tins both work.

    This looks like a delicious recipe. I was wondering if you ever make it in a regular size pie shell? If you have, did you increase the amt. of the ingredients? Of course the baking time would be a lot longer. I just didn’t want to fool around with the tart pans. Thanks for so many great recipes and info on your site!

      Well, tarts are just small versions of a larger pie shell, so definitely you can make it larger (with a longer cook time). I can’t give you specifics on ingredients for a larger pie, though – I haven’t tried that with this recipe.

    Did you add some herbs too? If so what herbs have you used?

    • Kris Bordessa Jan 5, 2019, 4:38 pm

      Try thyme or basil!
