What a nice treat! It is time consuming like an old-fashioned recipe - before the days of throw a can of soup in with something and ta-da it's done --but, it's worth the effort! I made it for a Father's Day brunch; it was well received. I used 9-in pie plates and I think next time I will reduce the amount of cream as it was just a tad soft. Like someone else mentioned try a longer baking time, it didn't seem done so I turned down the heat and gave it another 30 minutes. Try it with different meats and cheeses, it's probably very versatile. Reminded me of a bed-and-breakfast style dish -with the fresh herbs and touch of nutmeg and almonds.
You were right when you said this is some work...but the crust was excellent. Great taste, I added a few things; shallots, broccoli,swiss cheese instead of cheddar. My husband thougth it was great, actually had two helpings.
This recipe is GREAT! I have made this two years running for a senior citizen luncheon and it is now requested! I found it takes longer to bake, so I reduced the temp a little at the end and it turned out wonderful. A lot of prep work, but well worth it. Make it, you won't be sorry.
Fabulous! I halved the recipe to make only one tart. I used a store bought pastry shell instead of making my own, and used colby-jack cheese. It's a great combination of flavors but the almonds on top set it apart from any other breakfast tart you've ever had. Highly recommend this recipe. It would be very easy to adjust to individual taste. I will try some more veggies next time--bell peppers, zucchini would both be tasty additions. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
Great! And while I'm here, I have a suggestion for those who have trouble cutting cinnamon rolls: Don't use a knife! Break off a 15" piece of white cotton thread, slip it horizontally under the roll to be cut and pull the thread ends to cross. The dough will be cut easily and neatly. Just move the thread down the roll to cut the next one.
This is a great recipe. The dough for the crust was a little wet, but working in a little extra flour made it easy to work with and it was delicious. Will definitely be making this one again!
