These savory appetizer tarts are the perfect wild card when you have guests at home. It was one of the great hits of my mother-in-law until her death and, in her later years, he prepared them whenever he had guests.

Bacon, can be replaced without problem for another type of protein such as York ham or chorizo. And replacing it, for example, with mushrooms, we have a great vegetarian appetizer.

Peel, gin and cut the tomatoes in mirepoix, beat the eggs and add salt and pepper. And we cut the bacon into strips, if we haven’t bought it already cut.
Spread the base of a muffin tin with butter, so that it does not stick, and add, in this order, a tablespoon of chopped onion, another of bacon and another of chopped tomato.

We cook the cakes at 200º C for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. We let them rest for a few minutes before unmolding and serving them.
