Courgette Tartlets

I had high hopes for this recipe but it fell a little short on flavour.  Even the pictures didn’t turn out the best.  Chopped, fried bacon and mushrooms would take it to the level I was hoping, so if you are going to make these please do add the bacon and mushrooms.

Courgette Tartlets


3-4 courgettes finely sliced
3 eggs
45ml crème fraiche
100ml milk
1 small garlic clove crushed
2.5ml hot English mustard powder
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 rashers of bacon chopped and fried – missing from mine
4 mushrooms chopped and fried
– missing from mine


  1. Line 4 ramekins with the courgettes overlapping the courgettes.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl and add in the other ingredients and stir through.
  3. Divide between the ramekins and bake for 12-15 minutes.

  1. I forget, for a moment, that you’re living in that “other” hemisphere and was surprised to see a corgette recipe in March. It will be our turn soon enough; it’s your turn now to enjoy Summer’s bounty. The pics are fine, Mandy, and I bet the dish tastes good, as is. Of course, adding some bacon would improve it but that’s true for just about anything. Well, at least in my home. 🙂

  2. I like the idea of lining the container with the courgettes and I love that you are so honest regarding the flavour. Did you try turning them out of the ramekins?

  3. Mandy, lovely little tartlets! I have many recipe ideas that fall flat in the flavor department, but keep on testing. That’s how brilliant new recipes are born! Maybe some sauteed leeks with that bacon?

  4. I like the fact you posted about a recipe that didn’t quite come up to expectations, what about adding some freshly chopped herbs? Mint always works well with courgettes, or maybe some oregano or parlsey. I like the idea of using them in a ramekin like you did

  5. Most of the time we have winners when we prepare a recipe but I guess they can’t all be. Thank you for the tip…I’ll add bacon and mushrooms.

  6. Now this is a really interesting recipe. I am new to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I’m so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  7. I agree with Greg, cheese is the thing, maybe some goat cheese or fontina. But hey, I love mushrooms and bacon any time so it’s all good. I think this sounds like a great way to prepare courgettes!

  8. Hm that’s too bad – from the photo I’d have high hope too! We should try with bacon and mushroom then!

  9. Well, now I know I will have to get to the store to get the ingredients for this recipe. Because my friends are coming over this weekend so I have to make this recipe for them. Thanks soo much for this recipe! 🙂
