These savoury mini tarts with cheese, onion, black olives, and chourico sausage are the perfect little bite for entertaining or for snacking at any time!

Prep Time: 20 mins ■ Cook Time: 20 mins ■ Makes: 12 mini tarts

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 sheet Puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup pitted black olives, drained and diced
  • 1/2 chourico sausage, chopped
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • Extra grated cheese, optional

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a skillet, brown the chourico sausage. Remove from skillet once cooked and transfer to a paper towel to drain off excess grease.
  3. Roll the pastry until about 1/4 inch thick and using a biscuit cutter, cut out rounds to fit a muffin tin.
  4. Gently press the puff pastry rounds out a bit with your fingers so that they line each section of the muffin pan, ensuring they come right to the top. Prick and bake in a hot oven for about 7 – 8 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, chop the spring onions finely, and cook in the same skillet as the chourico, until softened.
  6. Line each small tart with chourico, and add some of the spring onions.
  7. Beat the eggs and add the grated Parmesan and chopped black olives to the egg mixture, combining well. Add freshly ground black pepper, if desired.
  8. Divide this mixture evenly over each tart. Add a bit more grated cheese, if desired.
  9. Return tarts to the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and egg mixture is cooked through.
  10. Serve immediately.
