Lets start step by step bread tartlets recipe

1: first of all you need to cook the potato. Prick the potato with a fork all over and microwave it for 4-5 minutes in the oven.

Remove the crusts from the sides of the bread. You can use any bread like Whole wheat bread, Brown bread or White bread. cut the bread into squares if the bread is large. If small bread then don’t need to cut into squares. Flatten each square piece of the bread with a rolling pin. Arrange each bread in a muffin tin. Brush with sunflower oil or olive oil. Place a piece of crumpled aluminium foil in each bread to keep the bread pieces secured in the muffin tin.

Throw away the foil. chop the boiled potato, onion and tomatoes. Grate or chop the cheese. I kept the bread a little soft in the center as hubby prefers it that way.

  1. hey dassana I have again same problem. I love ur dishes but I don’t have oven so I can’t make it if u can help me to cook these tartles without oven then plz do it

    1. aman, do you have an appe pan/paniyaram pan. then you can make these tartlets in it. just toast the bread first very lighty in the pan. and then add the toppings and cheese. cover the pan with a lid and cook on a low flame till the cheese melts. or you can use small steel bowls and place them in the pressure cooker. keep the bowls in a pan that fits inside the cooker. you can see the method of baking in a pressure cooker here –

  2. Hi dassana,
    Love this recipe.. Wanted to try for a snack party but I have a doubt.. Will it become soggy if it’s prepared ahead of time ??

    1. these do not become soggy. but the cripsness will go away. what you can do is bake the bread tartlets till light golden without any filling. when they cool down, remove and store them in an air tight container. just before serving, remove and place the filling and bake till the cheese melts.

  3. awesome recipe………………!!!! :* <3 ^_^
