Gouda and tomatoes tart

Initially I bought a packet of ready made prata, intending to do a prata with sausage roll but I have forgotten to add the sausages into the shopping cart.  Too lazy to make another trip so I decided to use whatever it is available in my fridge.

Saw Gouda in the fridge and some cherry tomatoes as well.   So here is my Gouda and tomatoes tart for our Sunday morning breakfast.

Verdict: Hubby and daughter said they prefer prata better than puff pastry.  Overall, they like it very much.

As for me, I am happy because these are so easy to put together.

What you need:

2 eggs
½ cup heavy cream
¼ cup milk
115g Gouda cheese, grated
6 slices bacon
Cherry tomatoes
salt to taste

Ready made prata


Place frozen prata into tart tin.  Slowly ease with some pleats to fit the tin nicely.  Return to freezer.

Fry bacon until crispy.  Set aside to drain off the oil.

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, heavy cream, milk. Add shredded cheese and fried bacon and mix well. 

Add salt to taste, if desired.

Pour fillings into into frozen prata and arrange tomatoes in it.

Baked at 180 deg for 20 mins or until golden brown.

Serve hot.

Happy Sunday folks!


  1. Your prata in fact looks like puff pastry to me :)

  2. Hi Edith,
    A great idea to use prata as the tart base! I never would have thought to use it!
    And the filling with bacon sounds delicious! Thanks for linking!

  3. hey edith! now i know the other uses of prata, i think that's wonderful and it looks great too! next time i can consider using prata instead of puff pastry too, thx for linking!

  4. how smart to turn this into another bake with existing ingredients.. if i were you, i would have frowned and sulked.. i'm pretty inflexible when it comes to baking after i planned... breakfast time Edith!

  5. Wouw Edith! I learn something new today :) love this idea that we can use prata to substitute the pastry skin. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Great idea! I'll love to try this!

  7. I love how easy these are done, I used ready made puff pastry for mine pies:D Yours looks really delicious and pretty!

  8. Hi Edith,

    I didn't know that ready made prata can be used to make instant pie crusts :p That's super handy!


  9. What a great idea!... Another use for roti prata. Thanks so much for sharing. Now I don't have to run to store just to get ready pastry.

  10. Hi Edith, I do keep some frozen prata. Sometimes mashed some bananas or topped with ham with prata. Running out of idea ... and this instant pie crust really great ! Thanks for sharing.
