I haven't made these particular tarts but I make a lot of mini quiches and keep in the freezer. I normally cook them until about 3/4 done and then reheat straight from the freezer. We all mmuch prefer them warm.

Thank you!
A few picnics & breakup parties usual for this time of year, and trying to plan ahead with the cooking as best I can.  I love quiches and want to try these tarts as well, and the only way I can possibly make everything is by doing after work during the week. But I'm a terrible planner, so see what the week brings, might be bringing bought dip & chips.

Made this as a tart like JulieO's today to use up some caramelised onions and feta I had. I used 3 eggs and parsley instead of thyme.

I've made it for tea tomorrow night Julie.  We are babysitting at Glenelg and my friend from Brisbane is coming to DD's house (she hasn't seen their latest house) then home with us for 3 nights.  We don't get home until 6.30 so I needed to have something ready for a quick meal.

Sounds like you'll have a lovely day/evening.  I love Glenelg and we always stay there when visiting Adelaide.  :D

I remember standing on the jetty at Glenelg years ago as someone had said the world was going to end and that was where it would happen or something similar. I love the tram into the city.

All the years of going to Glenelg and I haven't once been on the tram.  :-))  They are all new ones now and Glenelg has changed heaps.  Has such a good atmosphere, we love it.  :D

JD the only problem with these mini tarts are they're too delicious and I don't want to share!  I made 24 last night for a picnic today, 18 are left and, as luck would have it, the picnic is cancelled due to the rain  ;D

How wonderful for you Viv, now you can eat the rest  ;D

JulieO, I can't believe you have stayed at Glenelg so often and never been to the city on the tram. 

Cookie, you were part of history the day you were at Glenelg.  Read the full story here.

I made these last night as a home trial since I promised to make these for a big Xmas lunch. They were delish and have frozen half of them to test out how well they freeze (as per your instructions...three quarters cooked). The question I have is can I use any other less fattening base since a lot of people seem to be watching their weight? What would work well for preparing beforehand and taking to a "do".

I used short pastry as my base. That does have a little less fat in it. You could try a few layers of filo pastry.

These are only tiny courton so people could restrict themselves to just 1 or 2 but Cookie's suggestion of filo is a lower fat option.
