Here is a delicious garden fresh brunch tart that is easy to make and another great way to enjoy some fresh summer veggies.

garden fresh brunch tart, breakfast, eggs, cheese, asparagus

I love to make tarts, quiche, and frittatas.  The varieties are endless, and I think they are so handy because they can be made ahead of time and be warmed up when you need them.  I made this garden fresh brunch tart last week-end and my husband gave it a big thumbs up.

My husband owns a drag racing car and once or twice a month the guys go to a race track for the week-end. Sometimes they do their own cooking, but most of the time they are too busy, so I send meals already prepared that they can just warm up.  Breakfast is usually sausage gravy and biscuits, and a quiche.  I decided to make them a variety of tarts for something a little different.

I think this would be nice to serve at a week-end brunch, tea party, or to cut in small pieces and serve as an appetizer. 

Meat could easily be added to this tart and I will do that sometimes, but this one was just a variety of garden veggies.

This is great served right from the oven, later at room temperature, or warmed up the next day.  Feel free to use any variety of veggies that your family would enjoy.

  1. This is workable with kids, too. I would make the shell and cut the veggies. They’d stir the filling and sprinkle all the veggies and potatoes.
    Pinned for use next week with the grandkids! Today they were here and banana bread was the cooking project we did! Last week was a cold pasta/veggie salad. The “Grandma Honey” cooking inspiration continues here and it’s a huge success!

    1. Oh my gosh! You are fixing awesome stuff. This is good with ham in it but I tried this one with no meat. My grandkids are so busy right now with sports and friends that I am being pushed down the ladder of importance. haha. I am down to basically the little ones. My 2 little grandsons from NC will be staying with me in 2 weeks and then I go to Denver to see 2 more little ones, so I will get a new group of cooking students! My grandkids would feel so neglected if they saw the things yours get created for them.

  2. So is it just the different pans that make a quiche and a tart different? That looks so good I can’t wait to try it out! I just love asparagus and anything with cheese must be good! Thanks!

    1. I am really not sure. I looked that up one time and I kept seeing that tarts do not have egg mixtures in them but I have seen many that do. For myself, I call it different things by the pan I use. My quiche are also a little thicker than the tarts. I have mini tart pans but I make mini quiche in them. This tart (or quiche,,lol) is really good with diced ham in it. I made it once with ham and brie cheese and that was good too.

  3. This looks delicious Pam. I’ve never used a Tart Pan, but I’m will to try. I’m getting together with a few of my cousins for a girl’s week-end away. We’re each responsible for a meal or 2 to help keep down the costs. This is going on my list. It’s a beautiful dish. I’ll need meat, but I’ll make it a side. Thanks for sharing.
