Savory Broccoli Tartlets are a lovely appetizer for parties and brunches, and are easy to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 leek, finely sliced
  • 6 ounces broccoli, broken into florets
  • 1/2 ounce butter
  • 1/2 ounce all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • 1 prepared 9-inch frozen pie crust, thawed

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven according to pie crust package directions. On a lightly floured surface, spread out the pie crust and using either a round cookie cutter or small glass, cut out rounds from the dough. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Add one round to each spot in the tin. Lightly press down on the rounds, and prick the bottom with a fork. Bake for about 10-12 minutes until the pastry is firm and lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. Using a small saute pan, add the olive oil and cook the leek for about 5 minutes, until soft. Add the broccoli and stir fry for about 1-2 minutes, and add a bit of water. Cover and steam for about 4 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender.
  3. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the flour. Cook for a minute, constantly stirring. Slowly add the milk to make a smooth sauce. Add half the cheese and season with salt & pepper.
  4. Spoon the broccoli & leek mixture into the tartlets, and spoon the sauce on top of each. Sprinkle each tartlet with the remaining cheese and bake until golden (about 10 minutes). Serve on a platter garnished with the parsley.
