Holiday Appetizers: Tomato Tartlettes


With December upon us, the sudden influx of parties, impromptu get togethers and entertaining is inevitable. Personally, I love having friends over, gabbing over food and drinking a little too much wine. And I know all too well that sometimes these joyous get togethers are a little spur of the moment, so it’s best to have some great quick, easy and tasty appetizers on hand. Enter Zima® tomato tartlettes, courtesy of the deliciously talented Broma Bakery. These are so simple to whip up, look like a dream, and of course, taste amazing. Which leaves you more time to drink wine- er, catch up with friends.


Zima® Tomato Tartlettes

12 frozen mini tart shells (2.25 ounces each)

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 shallots, sliced thin width-wise

8 ounces herbed goat cheese

1 pint Zima® tomatoes, sliced thin

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Preheat oven according to directions on mini tart shells. Allow to cook half way, then remove from oven and let cool slightly.

While the tarts are cooking, sauté shallots in olive oil over medium heat until golden brown and crispy, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Once tarts have baked half way, spoon herbed goat cheese into the center, then flatten with your fingers. Top with crispy shallots and Zima Tomatoes.

 Sprinkle with thyme leaves, then place in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes, until the tart shells are golden and the cheese is fully melted. Serve hot.
