Tomato Tart Topped with Crumbled Roquefort Cheese



Do you still have a lot of tomatoes?  If so, then this recipe is a perfect way to use those juicy ripe tomatoes!  Do you like Roquefort cheese?  Any kind of cheese works for me ~ tangy, mild, sharp and stinky; with Roquefort cheese at the top of the list. 

The sharp, salty taste of Roquefort cheese pairs perfectly with the natural sweetness of tomatoes and makes a savory tart.  This tart is so easy to put together and colorful too.  It’s simply puff pastry, a little sour cream and mustard with tomatoes, dried thyme, salt and pepper and then baked until the pastry is golden brown.  Top it with crumbled Roquefort cheese after baking for a great dish.  Feta cheese is just as delicious also!

This makes a fantastic appetizer or side dish or is delicious when served with a salad for a meatless meal.   Once you try it, I bet you will be bringing it back for an encore! 




Tomato Tart Topped with Crumbled Roquefort Cheese

Ingredients:

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 teaspoon grainy mustard
Coarse salt and ground pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup onion, sliced into small strips
½ teaspoon ground thyme
2 or 3 tomatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4” thick
2-3 ounces Roquefort cheese, crumbled

Method:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Roll out puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch square.
Place pastry on a parchment lined baking sheet.
In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mustard, sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Spread mixture over pasty.
Fold the 4 edges over into a ½-inch border and press to seal.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
In a skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat.
Add onions and season with salt and pepper and ground thyme.
Reduce heat and caramelize onions until soft.
Arrange over sour cream mixture on puff pastry.
Top the pastry with the tomato slices and season with salt and pepper.
Bake until pastry is golden brown, about 25-28 minutes.
Let cool slightly.
Top with crumbled Roquefort cheese before cutting into squares.
Serve warm or at room temperature. 

It’s packed with flavor!

ENJOY!!!

  1. Your tart looks fantastic Pam! I'm not a huge fan of Roquefort, but maybe I could use Gorgonzola or even goat cheese? I still have yet to make a tart...maybe this will be my inspiration! Thanks for sharing!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
