Rustic Tomato Cheese Tart Recipe

Rustic Tomato Cheese Tart

7 sheets phyllo dough (14×9 inches)

1/3 cup olive oil

7 Tbsp. crumbled goat cheese

1 cup thinly sliced sweet onion

1 cup (4 oz.) shredded fontina cheese

4 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

2 Tbsp. minced chives

1 Tbsp. minced fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried basil

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Brush with oil and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. goat cheese.   (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and damp towel to prevent it from drying out).  Repeat layers, brushing oil all the way to edges.

Sprinkle onion over top to within 1 inch of edges; sprinkle with fontina cheese.  Arrange tomato slices in a slightly overlapping pattern over fontina cheese.  Sprinkle with chives, basil, salt and pepper.  Bring up edges of tart over filling.

Bake at 375 F. for 30-35 minutes or until is golden brown.            12 servings
