FFWD - Gerard's Mustard Tart

This is the second Friday of our new cooking group - French Fridays with Dorie.  I'm having fun trying all these new recipes.  I hope you are too.

Mustard tart is a flavourful quiche.  I didn't have a grainy mustard, so I used three tablespoons of a nice Dijon.  The taste was perfect for my family; present but not overpoweringly spicy.  We loved that all butter crust.  It was delicious and very easy to handle.

My only complaint is that the recipe produced a very thin tart.  Next time I'll add two more eggs and more cream.

This recipe can be found at French Fridays With Dorie.

 It's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, so expect that next week's recipe will be  Vietnamese Spicy Turkey Noodle Soup!

  3. It looks great. We loved this! I made a small tart and had to reduce the filling a little - I guess it depends on how much your crust can hold. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Beautiful tart! And what a fantastic idea to make next week's soup with turkey. I may have to borrow that idea, with full credit, of course! I joined the group too, but I just moved last Saturday and have had no time to cook at all. Fingers crossed for next week.

  6. Gorgeous!!! Absolutely loved it, even when I accidentally used sweet tart dough for the crust while going for a short cut!

  11. Clivia - thanks so much for your email help! Your tart is wonderful! Hey - more eggs and cream? What's wrong with that? :) A "new" experience for me - but that's the adventure of FFwD! Oh, being Canadian, do you have a special Nanaimo bar recipe? Would love one!

  13. I made a larger, square tart and increased the recipe portion for the custard slightly but not enough to fill the tart. I agree, more custard - there can never be enough custard, right? I want a slice of the tart - yes, that first photo - now!! Looks so delicious.

  14. I think making it with extra eggs and cream for a thicker tart is a great idea. The addition of the 3 grape tomatoes is a lovely touch!
