Crustless Tomato-Basil Breakfast Tarts with Mozzarella and Goat Cheese:
I love fresh tomato and basil season so much that every year when summer is ending I start to feel a bit panicked about not having those flavors around any more. That’s how I end up sharing recipes like these Crustless Tomato-Basil Breakfast Tarts with Mozzarella and Goat Cheese, just when summer is winding down and other bloggers have moved on to back-to-school casseroles, or even (gasp) pumpkin recipes.
I do the same thing with zucchini, which means that some of my favorite recipes with summer ingredients get posted in late August or early September. But I hope you still have fresh tomatoes for a few more weeks so you get a chance to try these delicious little Caprese-Salad inspired breakfast tarts. You can use any type of ripe summer tomato in this recipe, and if you like fresh tomatoes and basil like I do, I bet you’ll think these are delicious. And it’s been a few years since I first shared this recipe so I’m sharing it as my Friday Favorites pick for this week.
This recipe uses the same little Williams-Sonoma tart pan I’ve used for Crustless Breakfast Tarts with Mushrooms and Goat Cheese and Southwestern Crustless Breakfast Tarts, among others but if you don’t have that type of tart pan you can use a jumbo muffin pan and just make a slightly thicker tart. (And Williams Sonoma has never paid me to advertise their pan but I certainly do love it and it’s perfect for making a crustless tart like this!)
How to make Crustless Tomato-Basil Breakfast Tarts with Mozzarella and Goat Cheese:
(This is just a summary of the steps; scroll down for the complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a 6-well tart pan or large muffin tin with non-stock spray.
- Take goat cheese out of the fridge and let it soften while you cut thin slices of tomatoes. Put tomatoes on paper towels so they can drain.
- Cut thin slices of fresh Mozzarella, then cut each slice in half.
- When the goat cheese is soft, put it in a bowl and stir with a fork to make it easier to mix in the other ingredients.
- Then mix in half-and-half to soften it more; then mix in Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), Italian Herb Seasoning (affiliate link), and black pepper.
- Beat eggs until they’re well combined, then mix in the eggs. (Forgot to take a photo with the egg mixed in, BAD blogger!)
- Divide the egg mixture among 6 tart wells and put the tarts in the oven to start baking at 375F/190C.
- While the tarts bake about 10 minutes, slice up about 10-15 basil leaves. (I used my favorite Herb Scissors (affiliate link) to cut the basil.)
- When the egg mixture starts to get firm, remove tarts from the oven and carefully lay on the mozzarella slices, then the thin tomato slices.
- Bake 10-12 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted and the tomatoes are slightly roasted. Then switch the oven to broil and broil the tarts 2-3 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and tomatoes are slightly shriveled.
- Let cool about 2-3 minutes; then sprinkle with freshly sliced basil and serve.
