METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced.
  2. In a mini food processor blend the cream cheese, feta and egg with a grind of black pepper.

  4. Toss the broccoli florets in a large bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Using a microplane grate the garlic over the broccoli and toss to coat.
  5. Brush a 2cm border around each tart with beaten egg. Add a tablespoon of the cream cheese mix to each tart staying within the border, top with the broccoli florets.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the broccoli slightly charred.
  7. Optional: while the tarts are baking sauté the bacon until crispy. Top the tarts with crispy bacon and and grated parmesan.
