Roasted Sweet Tomato Tart

I love my Avoca cookbook and am attempting to make as many of the recipes as I can.  One of my favourites which I have made twice is Roasted Sweet Tomato Tart with goat's cheese, basil and pine nut crush.

(I took the photo before adding the basil pesto)

On Saturday I was watching Saturday Kitchen and Donna Hay was making some Pancetta Baked Eggs which looked so delicious I decided to make some too.  I had prosciutto instead of pancetta which worked equally well.  Line muffin tins with the pancetta, whisk an egg with cream, salt and pepper.

Pour this into the tin, sprinkle with parmesan and bake.  Simple!  One egg made two of these.

I served them with a salad but they could also be served as a cooked breakfast.


  1. Both those recipes look so good. Think I'm going to have to buy that book! M x

  2. Your food looks so delicious, especially the first dish I love anything with goats cheese. One of my blog friends has just got back from Ireland and has some amazing posts about Avoca and bought the cookery book too.

  3. Mmmm ...can you hear my tummy rumbling?

  4. ooh that looks divine!
    My fave tomato recipe is simply to scatter them with thyme, roast at 180 for 15 minutes after supper is finished and then leave in the oven without opening the door overnight- the MOST PERFECT tomatoes for on-toast breakfast!

  5. Hello! Ruth,

    Hope your enjoying a sunny weekend! Take care.
