Mini Cheese & Tomato Tartlet for One

Mini Cheese Tomato Tartlet

This mini cheese & tomato tartlet recipe makes a tiny tartlet that serves one person a snack.  I just fancied something a little savoury, so quickly made a simple oil and flour pastry – I made up just a half quantity of that, then topped it with cheese, tomato and a sprinkling of oregano before baking.

The tart above is about 3-4″ wide.  Apologies for the photo, this wasn’t the best looking dish I’ve cooked this month, I was in a bit of a hurry to scoff it to be honest!

Pastry Ingredients: 

  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon self raising flour
  • 3 teaspoons oil
  • 3 teaspoons icy water
  • pinch of salt

Make the Pastry:  Simple Oil and Flour Pastry.

Filling Ingredients: 

  • 2 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons of grated cheese
  • A sprinkling of oregano


  1. First make and bake the pastry case.

  2. Once the pastry case has cooled (I was too impatient for that bit today), add the fillings and bake at 180°C for 15 minutes.

  3. Leave the tartlet to cool in the dish for 10 minutes or so. Serve.

This really is just a bite, a snack, a nibble…..

Menu Cost – 10p:

The pastry will cost about 2-3p to make, the filling would be 6-7p.  So this is a 10p tart!  It might even come in cheaper and is a great way to get a tasty savoury snack for one.
