Canadian Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Tartlets


This past Friday, our faculty celebrated the Christmas Season with a progressive dinner. I had a cooking class scheduled at that time so I did not get to go, but I offer to bring some appetizers for them to enjoy. I was thinking to make small quiche lorraine because they are yummy, easy to make and quite quick to fix.

When I finally found the time to fix them, I came to realize that I was missing the main ingredients : BACON. and I could not get some because it was wayyyy to late to go to the store!!!

So i had to adapt and used Canadian Bacon and Cheddar Cheese instead. The result was quite yummy;-)

Ingredients for 45 mini tartlets:

  • 1/2 cup of canadian bacon chopped very small
  • 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 pack of pie crust
  1. Place the mini tartlet on top of a perforated sheet ( it will cook more evenly).
  2. Unroll your roul’pat on your counter and roll out the pie crust.
  3. With a pie crust cutter, cut the crust into small pie
  4. Place the pie shells onto the mini tartlet pan and with a shaper, press the pie crust down so that it will take the form of the pan.
  5. With a fork, puncture the pie crust so that a ” bubble” will not form at the bottom when it is baking. Set 1
  6. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients mentioned above and mix well.
  7. Place about 1 tsp of that mixture in each 2
  8. Cook in a warm oven of 400 for 15 3
  9. Enjoy!!!photo 4
