Roasted Tomato and Feta Cheese Mini Tarts


Roasted Tomato and Feta Cheese Mini TartsWe had friends over for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies on Friday night. We decided to do a bunch of fun appetizers instead of a sit down dinner. I thought roasted tomatoes and feta cheese would make excellent mini tomato tarts. These little tarts were so simple to make, had very little clean up and were a huge hit with everyone. I loved the flavor of the salty cheese, sweet tomato and balsamic vinegar, and the flaky phyllo. They were really delicious.

  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 15 cherry tomatoes
  • Dried basil, to taste
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 15 mini phyllo shells
  • Feta cheese

Roasted Tomato and Feta Cheese Mini Tarts

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the tomatoes and olive oil in a baking dish, season with dried basil, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then toss to coat. Place in the oven and roast for 20-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and gently shake to coat.

Place the phyllo cups onto a baking sheet covered in a silpat mat. Pour a teaspoon of feta cheese into each phyllo cup then place in the oven and bake for 5-6 minutes. Remove the cups from the oven and place a tomato in each phyllo cup. Drizzle the remaining balsamic vinegar (from the bottom of the baking dish) on top of each tomato. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
