All praise the tart.

The tart is one of the most versatile dishes out there. You can stick pretty much anything you want in it, and one of my favorites is to layer in slices of potato with bacon, gruyere, and herbs.

Have it for dinner, have it for brunch, or have it for a snack.

For the tart:

  • 1 prepared pie crust pressed into a 10" tart shell
  • 12 oz package center cut bacon
  • 4-5 large russet potatoes
  • 1 cup grated gruyere cheese
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until it’s nice and crispy (about 10 minutes). Drain the bacon strips on a paper towel, and pat the excess grease off. Crumble or chop your bacon up into small bits.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Peel the potatoes, then slice them into 1/16″ thick rounds using a mandolin or a knife.
  • Line the potato slices up side by side in one even layer inside the unbaked tart shell. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle over 2 tbsp of bacon, 3 tbsp gruyere, and a pinch of rosemary.
  • Repeat 3 more times, until you have 4 layers of potatoes. Drizzle 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil on top, and if you are using a tart pan with a removable bottom, place the tart on a sheet pan so butter doesn’t drip out from the bottom and burn in your oven.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Enjoy!


Note: if you don’t want to do bacon, thinly sliced ham is amazing in here too!  Just layer it in.
