Gérard’s Mustard Tart…Week 2 of French Fridays with Dorie

I had to giggle when Bill came home from work, took one glance at this tart and asked whether it was for dessert. He’s not used to me baking such an attractive savory dish! He grew more dubious when I listed the ingredients…mustard, carrots, leeks. But he was a good sport and tried a sample. I found the taste delightful…the filling is not overwhelmed by the mustard, just enhanced. As my boys drown everything in ketchup, not mustard, I doubt they’ll be clamoring for this again.

As usual, I had difficulty with the crust, but it was simple to repair with some patching and pressing. Other than that, it comes together very easily…and makes a gorgeous presentation. I could see my foodie friends enjoying this with a green salad and a glass of wine for lunch or dinner.
