Ingredients for Mini Tarts with Roast Beef and Gruyère

Here’s what’s involved in making our fabulous MINI BEEF AND GRUYÈRE SAVOURY TARTS:

Mini tart shells lined up ready to be filled

SHELL GAME

This recipe is made extra easy because we’re using prepared mini tart shells – you’ll find them in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Simply follow the directions on the package and you’ll have no trouble.

The mini shells filled with beef

FILL ‘ER UP

Although you can add virtually anything to prepared tarts shells, we were after a specific taste – meaty-cheesy deliciousness. We used store-bought roast beef, thinly sliced so that the custard and cheese can melt into the meat evenly.

Mushrooms, shallot and thyme sautéed in butter

‘SHROOMS

Now, if the roast beef wasn’t enough, how about we add another layer of deliciousness with a sauté of mushrooms? We’ve made this recipe using button, cremini, shiitake and even more exotic varieties, each one as good as the last. We suggest trying a different mushroom every time you make the recipe, just so you don’t get bored (as if!)

Cream cheese and egg custard

CHEESY

We know the use of Gruyère in this recipe is fantastic, we just can’t decide what’s better: its aroma when the tarts come out of the oven, its nutty flavouring, or the way it gets extra gooey with the egg custard and horseradish. 

Adding a tiny dollop of horseradish

BAKE ON!

So, a quick re-cap – they’re easy to make, filled with delicious ingredients and smell really good as they bake. Those three things together make for an extremely popular cocktail snack that disappears very fast! From one friend to another, please note: this recipe yields 12 mini tarts, perfect for parties of six or less. Entertaining more? Double or triple the recipe – they won’t go to waste!

Topping the tarts with grated Gruyère

Here are a few other tasty treats you should be adding into your hors d’oeuvres rotation: try POGAČICE, our light and fluffy cheese puffs, or our PROSCIUTTO & PEACH CROSTINI. We also like the simplicity of our SMOKED EGGPLANT DIP as well as our quick AJVAR RED PEPPER DIP.  All of the above will help you get your next party started.
