Simple tomato and mozzarella tarts

All you will need is puff pastry, mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, dried italian herbs, and a beaten egg.

You can use ready-made puff pastry, I use Jus-Rol pastry. Simply roll it out and cut into circles, or any shape, with a cookie cutter or something similar. 
Brush the outsides of the circle with beaten egg, and place a slice of mozzarella in the middle, topped with a slice of tomato. Sprinkle with herbs and bake in the oven for around 10-15 mins on about gas mark 4 or 5 (180-200 degrees)

I made these to take to a buffet once, they were easy to re-heat in the oven and tasted delicious.

Enjoy :)

  1. Hi Lottie,

    I hope you don’t mind me posting this, but I came across your tomato and mozzarella mini tarts and thought they’d be a pretty good idea for a tapas recipe.

    Which, if you're interested, would work well for a tapas competition we’re running on the easyJet holidays website:

    There’s a chance to win a 3 night break for two to Barcelona staying at a 4* hotel, including flights for the lucky winner. There are also 10 runners up prizes too!
