A wood-fired appetizer like no other. These baked heirloom tomato tarts are simple to make and will get your next party started off in smokin’ fashion.
1 Sheet Puff Pastry
2 lbs Heirloom Tomatoes, Various Shapes and Sizes
1/2 cup Ricotta
1/2 Tbsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Thyme Leaves
1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
Pinch of Black Pepper
4 Sprigs Thyme
Salt and Pepper, to taste
When ready to cook, set temperature to 350˚F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place the puff pastry on a parchment lined sheet tray, and make a cut ¾ of the way through the pastry, ½” from the edge.
Slice the tomatoes and season with salt. Place on a sheet tray lined with paper towels.
In a small bowl combine the ricotta, 4 of the eggs, salt, thyme leaves, red pepper flakes and black pepper. Whisk together until combined. Spread the ricotta mixture over the puff pastry, staying within ½” from the edge.
Lay the tomatoes out on top of the ricotta, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme sprigs.
In a small bowl whisk the last egg. Brush the egg wash onto the exposed edges of the pastry.
Place the sheet tray directly on the grill grate and bake for 45 minutes, rotating half-way through.
When the edges are browned and the moisture from the tomatoes has evaporated, remove from the grill and let cool 5-7 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
