Fried Green Tomato Tart


Well, what do you do with so many green tomatoes?  I’ve really been having fun making different meals with my garden bounty.  I took my chili relleno tart and turned it into something quite different.  This tart can be served at any time during the day, breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The first time I made it was for our Saturday night dinner.  I served it with steamed broccoli drizzled with fresh squeezed lemon.  Sunday morning I teamed the left over tart with fried potatoes and fresh fruit.  Monday rolled around and the was one solo piece left.  It made a great light, quick lunch.
