  • 4 Heirloom Tomatoes (cored and sliced) or 2 cups Cherry Tomatoes up to 6 tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves grated or minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh tarragon chopped and separated
  • 1 tsp hot honey plus more for serving
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet thawed
  • 1 cup sharp white cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup havarti or gouda cheese shredded
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • garlic salt or everything bagel spice for sprinkling
  • shaved parmesan cheese for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, balsamic, olive oil, garlic, hot honey, and 1 tablespoon of tarragon. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside.
  • Lay the puff pastry sheet on a clean, lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, gently roll out the sheet to stretch slightly. Move the pastry sheet onto the parchment paper-lined pan.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar and havarti (or gouda) over the surface of the pastry sheet, leaving about a ½ inch of space around the border. Layer the tomatoes on top of the cheese, pressing in slightly to adhere. Arrange the tomatoes in any order or design you’d like.
  • Fold the edges of the pastry inward to enclose the tomatoes. Brush the edges with beaten egg and sprinkle with either garlic salt or everything bagel spice.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 18-23 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the tomatoes burst.
  • Top with the remaining tablespoon of tarragon, shaved Parmesan, a heavy drizzle of hot honey, and freshly cracked black pepper. Serve and enjoy!
