Very nice, Miss Fannie!!! Easily prepared, I was generous with all ingredients although I kept the cheese mix according to recipe, you dont want to overdo the mayo, I think. I also held back on extra seasoning. I made my own shortcrust pastry, used muffin tins, and got an even dozen tartlets. They look good, they smell good, and by golly, do they taste good :) I sprinkled the thyme onto the tomatoes, hope that was right. These delicious tartlets were made for PRMR tag game. Thank you Miss Fannie!!
Wish I could give you 10 stars for this recipe, it is that good. Quick, super easy to make, with results that will blow you over. The flavor of these tarts is amazing, sweet, savory,with bacon and cheese, what more can I say...So, so tasty, my dh & I both didn't talk much while enjoying this treat...all that could be heard was mmmmmm. I got 10 tarts out of the recipe, used 1 tomato and 5 pieces of bacon, everything else was as listed. There are no directions for where to add the thyme, so I left it out and honestly didn't miss it. I just wanted to add that I only cooked the tarts for 28 minutes, my convection oven runs hot. We will definitely be enjoying these little babies again soon. I have placed your recipe in my Favorites Cookbook for 2013. Kudos to you.
These tarts are really delicious! They are almost too cute to eat, but we managed somehow. I went light on the onions and did not use any salt because of the bacon and cheese. I made half the recipe -- they are really easy to make and have a great presentation. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, June, 2013.
