There are two things I really love about this particular recipe. One, that it’s actually two recipes I threw together because #hellodelicious. But really, you can use the two spreads separately, however you want. Two, THE TOMATO JAM. I came up with this on a whim when I had a bunch of leftover cherry tomatoes, and dear lord was it good. This tartine is only the beginning — there are so many things you could do with this sweet, savory, tomato-y spread (in fact, I’ve listed some of them at the end of the post!).
If you’re sticking with tartines, once you have the two spreads made, these open-faced sandwiches come together in a flash. They can be sliced up into smaller pieces and served alongside a cheese board or on a buffet (perfect, in fact, if you’re throwing a Bastille Day party next week!).
I’d be remiss if I didn’t show a little love to the goat cheese spread. Truthfully, I originally wanted to build this post around that specific recipe, as it’s something I have made for years. Last year, I brought it to one of my French classes, and everyone loved it so much I found myself emailing out the recipe to classmates. I figured it was high time I share it here, too! I find myself making this spread in the summertime, when it’s lemony goodness matches the weather. It’s a family favorite — I hope you enjoy it!
