Ingredients

  • Butter or spray oil, for greasing
  • 3 sheets savoury shortcrust pastry, semi-thawed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 4 rashers streaky bacon, diced
  • 2 medium courgettes, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 50g feta cheese, diced
  • Finely chopped parsley, for garnish

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180⁰C (160⁰C fan-forced). Grease 3 x 12-hole mini muffin trays with butter or oil.

  2. Using a cookie cutter or rim of a glass, cut the pastry into 6cm discs and press into the base of the muffin trays. Chill in the fridge until required.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on high and sauté the onion, bacon, courgette and garlic for 3-4 minutes until starting to brown, and the courgette is tender. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

  4. Remove muffin trays from the fridge, and spoon mixture into the pastry shells.

  5. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt and pepper and pour into the pastry shells, allowing the mixture to drizzle through the courgette mix and fill the tarts. Place a cube of feta in each and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.

  6. Leave to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then place on a serving platter and sprinkle with parsley.

Tip: Store any leftover feta in a brine made of 1 tablespoon of salt dissolved in 1 cup of water. This will help the feta last longer.
