“BLT” Tart Recipe

Makes 12-18 appetizers.

For the crust:

Make your favorite pie dough or cheat and buy the pre-made pie crust from the grocery store.  Pre-heat oven to 350.  Cut out 2 inch diameter circles.  Place in sprayed mini-muffin tins and bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven.  Set aside and let cool.

For the Bacon Jam:
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 small cloves garlic, chopped 
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, until browned. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Reserve browned bits and 1 tablespoon fat in pan.

Add onion and garlic to pan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder, ginger, and mustard and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Increase heat to high; add maple syrup. Bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits. Add vinegar and brown sugar and return to a boil. Add reserved bacon; reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid reduces to a thick glaze, about 10 minutes.

Transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse until it has the consistency of a chunky jam. Set aside and let cool.

For the tomato mousse:

  • 1 package cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon double concentrated Cento Tomato Paste in the tube.  It really is  good quality.
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients until creamy and smooth.  Set aside.

Fried Basil:
  • 12-18 basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup oil

In a small sauce pan heat oil on medium-high.  When oil is hot, drop 4 leaves at a time into the oil.  let fry until crispy.  Remove from oil and drain on paper towel.

To assemble:

Place 2 teaspoons of tomato mixture in bottom of tart shell.  Top with 1 teaspoons tomato jam.  Garnish with 1/4 grape tomato and fried basil.  Serve.
