Frequent visitors to Weekend at the Cottage know how much we enjoy hanging out with family and friends. Sure, it’s about chilling out on the dock, warming up at the campfire, watching sunsets and late-night stargazing, but it’s also about really good food. This recipe for SAVOURY MINI TARTS is one of our most requested easy party snacks. Hope you enjoy them as much as our friends always do.

Because this post is so popular, we suggest you PIN a pic to a favourite Pinterest board. It’s also a nice idea to send the link for this recipe to all of your friends. Trust us, if you’re heading to theirs for a get-together, you’ll want to be served these.

Here’s how to make our best SAVOURY PARTY TARTS:

Savoury Mini Tarts


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.

Although you can add virtually anything to prepared tarts shells, we were after a specific taste – meaty-cheesy deliciousness. Adding beef, cream cheese, mushrooms and Gruyère accomplished this in spades. These ingredients will fill your kitchen with enticing aromas too.

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 astray!

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 TROUT DIP as well as our quick AJVAR RED PEPPER DIP and our tangy BLUE CHEESE DIP. All of the above will help you get your next party started.
