Try baking some eggs on it or topping it with a fried egg for breakfast!
One unbaked tart dough (your own or store-bought) Dijon or whole-grain mustard 2-3 large ripe tomatoes 2 tablespoons olive oil salt and freshly ground pepper two generous tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as thyme, chives, chervil, tarragon, savory, or basil 8 ounces fresh or slightly aged goat cheese, sliced into rounds OR fresh mozzarella
1 1/2 cups flour 4 1/2 ounces unsalted butter, chilled, cut into cubes 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 large egg 2-3 tablespoons cold water
Make the dough by mixing the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and use your hands, or a pastry blender, to break in the butter until the mixture has a crumbly, cornmeal-like texture. Mix the egg with 2 tablespoons of the water. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the beaten egg mixture, stirring the mixture until the dough holds together. If it’s not coming together easily, add the additional tablespoon of ice water. Gather the dough into a ball and roll the dough on a lightly floured surface, adding additional flour only as necessary to keep the dough from sticking to the counter. Once the dough is large enough so that it will cover the bottom of the pan and go up the sides, roll the dough around the rolling pin then unroll it over the tart pan. “Dock” the bottom of the pastry firmly with your fingertips a few times, pressing in to make indentations. (If you wish to make a free-style tart, roll the dough out to about 14-inches across, then transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Assemble the tart, leaving a 2-inch (5 cm) border, which you’ll then fold up to enclose the tart.) Preheat the oven to 400. Spread an even layer of mustard over the bottom of the tart dough and let it sit a few minutes to dry out. Arrange the tomatoes over the mustard in a single, even layer. Drizzle the olive oil over the top.Sprinkle with some chopped fresh herbs, then arrange the slices of goat cheese on top. Add some more fresh herbs, then drizzle with some honey (optional). (If baking a free-form tart, gather the edges when you’re done, to envelope the filling.) Bake the tart for 30 minutes or so, until the dough is cooked, the tomatoes are tender, and the cheese on top is nicely browned. Depending on the heat of your oven, if the cheese doesn’t brown as much as you’d like it, you might want to pass it under the broiler until it’s just right.
