Reviews for Savory Tomato Tarts
"So easy and still so good. I didn't even use the bacon or the parmesan and they still turned out delicious."
"I made these for my dad's 60th birthday party and everyone really liked them. I made the cheese and tomato mixture up a few hours prior and then put them together just before placing into oven as I was afraid to make them up ahead of time as they might get soggy. They did not last long!"
