Tasty Tuesday

                Another holiday has passed, so soon too! Over the Easter weekend, we met our Kentucky kids half way for lunch and just to spend some time together to catch up and hold our newest grand daughter, Miss Ellie! We haven't seen them since Christmas, so this time was long overdue and with gas prices so high ( $3.68 here) meeting half way was do-able for everyone! So, in honor of our Kentucky kids, I thought I'd share this recipe I clipped from the May 2011 issue of Southern Living and make it soon, it's been staring at me long enough!

Kentucky Hot Brown Tart

  • (14.1-oz.) package refrigerated pie crusts 
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded white Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • bacon slices, cooked and crumbled 
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • large eggs 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Unroll pie crusts; stack on a lightly greased surface. Roll stacked pie crusts into a 12-inch circle. Fit pie crust into a 10-inch deep-dish tart pan with removable bottom; press into fluted edges. Trim off excess pie crust along edges. Line pie crust with aluminum foil or parchment paper, and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Place pan on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes. Remove weights and foil from pie crust, and bake 8 more minutes. Cool completely on baking sheet on a wire rack (about 15 minutes). Reduce oven temperature to 350°.
  2. 2. Layer turkey and next 3 ingredients in tart shell on baking sheet.
  3. 3. Whisk together half-and-half and next 3 ingredients; pour over turkey.
  4. 4. Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes or until set.
  5. 5. Place tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels; press tomatoes lightly with paper towels. Arrange over top of tart, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cool on baking sheet on wire rack 15 minutes

        And here she is, Miss Ellie sitting with her daddy awaiting lunch at Lambert's! She's grown so much but is still tiny for her age, she's 6 mo. old now and almost up to 12 pds., loves her rice cereal and her fuzzy monkey! It was the perfect way to start the Easter weekend! I hope everyone had a blessed holiday, as we did!!
