Cherry Tomato & Jersey Corn Tart


Here is my annual contribution to the summer tomato tart recipes.

This time, I added 2 ears of sweet Jersey corn to the mixture, and boy was it good!

I used a store bought pie shell, because I had one in the freezer.

You can add bacon or not, but bacon makes everything better.


Cherry Tomato & Corn Tart:

1 9" pie shell

1 cup of cherry tomatoes (I used yellow and red)
2 ears of fresh corn, shucked
3 eggs
3/4 cup of whole milk
1 cup cheddar or Gruyere cheese, shredded
big handful of scallions, chopped
big handful of fresh basil, chopped
salt & pepper
3 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

It's simple.

Slice the corn off the husks by standing the ears on their side and carefully slicing the corn off into a bowl. Try and catch all the milky corn juice too.

Mix everything together and pour into prepared pie shell and season w/ salt & pepper.

Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes until custard is set and golden.

Let cool so the tomatoes set and are no longer runny.


The best of summer.

This sounds delicious. I often use Marie Callender frozen pie shells. This pie bakery/restaurant chain is known for its good crust. The frozen ones are very nice. My late Mother was a pastry master, so I am picky!

Sick of sandwiches (and DH is not a big salad-as-dinner person) - may make this to take to concert in the park on Sunday...

Stacey, may I have your permission to add a little cheese? ;-)

Oooh - This looks great and is now on my short list of things to make before the summer ends. It kind of reminds me of a quiche, but without the cheese. Come to think of it, maybe a little parmesan or gruyere might find its way in when I make it.

I forgot to add the cup of cheddar cheese in the recipe! I will fix that now

Stacey did you prebake your frozen pie shell?

Hi Dena,
No, I did not prebake the shell.....I never do. 35 minutes always does the trick!

I made this last night. Did not have enough tomatoes but it was still so good. Even my husband and teenaged boys enjoyed it. Thank you,
