Mini Tomato Pesto Tarts

Appetizers are always my favorite part of the party or holiday meal and today I’m sharing a really simple and delicious bite- sized treat with fresh tomatoes and basil pesto in a flaky phyllo shell.

Mini Tomato Pesto Tarts Recipe from MissintheKitchen #ad #BBQBites

I’ve made a couple of batches of my Roasted Garlic Basil Pesto this summer and I used my last bit to make these amazing little appetizers. I still want to make a few more batches of pesto for the freezer. Pesto adds the best flavor to homemade soups and pasta sauces and I enjoy it year round that way.

These Mini Tomato Pesto Tarts are totally going to steal the show at your next barbecue!  I can’t believe summer is almost over. Warm weather will last well into September here in Oklahoma, so we can squeeze in a few more weekend barbecues. I love it.

Cookouts and barbecues are the best with family and friends.  It’s always casual and relaxed. I like to have a simple menu and be sure to let you guests help out with side dishes, drinks, and ice.  It’s always great if someone offers to bring the paper plates and plastic cups too.

You can find everything you need to host the ultimate barbecue cookout at Wayfair!  From new patio furniture to outdoor serve ware and more!
