Brie and potato tart – Quick cheesy recipe

Christmas is only 6 days away and I am here baking already, trying out recipes and stuff.
The latest addiction these days for me is a special flaky dough.
It’s so good that I made it again for this brie and potato tart I am gonna show you today.

This brie and potato tart is the best combination ever.
Cheesy but also very creamy and with lot of texture. The ptatoes roasted in the pan are just amazing.

The flaky dough was one of my previous experiments where I had no clue of what was gonna come out.
Tastiest dough ever! Tastiest brie and potato tart ever!
Most of the times is like that right? That the things done without expectations are always the best outcomes. Does it happen to you as well?

I made this brie and potato tart on the go, cos it is extremly easy to put together.
The only bit you have to cope with is the resting time required for the dough.

Serve a nice slice of this brie and potato tart as an unusual side or it can be made in a larger scale for a party..could be a nice Christmas gathering meal idea for example.

Ingredients for brie and potato tart (18cm diameter tray)

100gr plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
80gr butter
80gr grated parmesan cheese
1 big potato
french brie cheese


Brie and potato tart – cooking method

Since it needs time to rest in the fridge, you better off doing the dough first of all.
In a medium bowl add the plain flour, the baking powder and the parmesan cheese.
Give it a stir to mix dry ingredients together.

Add 80 gr of soft butter and start mixing the dough with you hands.
Do not add any water or milk in this.
Even if at first it might look dry, the butter will make everything come together you’ll see.

Mix to reach a soft consistency of the dough, don’t owerwork it.
When it’s ready wrap it in cling film paper and let it rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, wash and peel the potato.
Slice it not too thin.
Grease a non stick pan with a little oil, then put it on a low medium and lay the potato slices in it.

Roast the potatoes until they get that nice browny color. Remember to flip it on the other side.

When the 20 minutes are gone and the dough has chilled enough in the fridge, take it out from there and place it on you working table.
Roll it out to be a bit less than a centimeter thick.
With this much dough I was able to make an 18cm diameter round tray and still had some left, which i made some nice savoury cookies with.

Cover the bottom and the sides of your tray and cut off the excess from the border.
Lay the potato slice on the bottom, sprinkle a little pinch of salt and pepper.
Add the french brie cheese slices on top, then make another layer of potato and season it.
Add a touch of rosemary and the potato and brie tart is ready for the oven.

Bake the brie and potato tart in a preheated oven at 200C for 15 minutes.
