German-Inspired Breakfast Tart

German-Inspired Breakfast Tart

If you’re a meat-and-potatoes kind of person, or a savory-breakfast kind of person, or hell just a breakfast person, this tart is worth trying. It was the result of what Amanda Fredrickson calls, Fridge Foraging, which is essentially taking a quick inventory of the things you need to cook and figure out what to make with the ingredients on-hand. In this case it’s the left-over German food we had made for a dinner party the night before, to which we fridge-foraged our way into this delicious breakfast that I will absolutely be making again.

Step 4: Using a fork poke holes in the bottom of the crust then place crust in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Step 5: In a bowl whisk cream and eggs. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

Step 6: Once your filling is done roasting it is time to blind-bake your tart shell. Remove tart shell from refrigerator. Reduce oven to 350 degrees. Line tart shell with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or substitute. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Step 7: Once tart shell has baked carefully remove pie weights. place vegetables, bratwursts, sauerkraut and feta (or goat cheese) in tart shell. Cover with cream and egg mixture.

Step 8: Bake for 15-17 minutes. Let cool. Enjoy!
