Fried Potato Gouda Sage Tart



Here's a beautiful savory sage scented tart stuffed with pan-fried potatoes and laced with melted gouda cheese for your fall baking pleasure. 

You're welcome.


This savory tart is a meal in itself. That's what I love about savory tarts. A slice and a small side salad and you're good to go. 

This recipe is a perfect Fall brunch option.  It is also a great side dish option for your upcoming Thanksgiving feast. 



The flavor secret to this tart is to fry the fresh sage leaves in olive oil, remove them and then use the sage-scented olive oil to fry the potatoes.




The layers of potatoes and pop of green from the sage make this an eye catcher as well. It brings the pretty to the table as well as the flavor. 

If you prefer, substitute shredded swiss instead of gouda.
