Appetizer Tarts

I came across this picture on Pinterest and from there, just decided to go with it... see below:

Using one of those small tart pans, there are essentially 3 layers:  (1)  base (2) middle, and (3) toppings

For the base I have used:

  • soft tortillas cut to size or
  • wonton wrappers or
  • puffed pastry or... 

For the middle:

  • pizza sauce or
  • pesto sauce or
  • salsa or
  • hot sriracha type sauce and/or...

  • thinly diced green onion, scallions or chives
  • minuscule diced pieces of tomato 
  • red bell pepper, diced 
  • diced ham, salami and/or ham and/or...

And for the top:

  • pepper jack cheese or what-ever-you-have-at-home!

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place base in each small tart pocket and then fill up tart pocket with your choice of middle ingredients (be experimental!) -- then top with cheese!
  • Bake at 375 for 11-13-20 minutes until cups are heated through and edges are golden. 
  • Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
