Tomato Shallot Clafoutis

If you’re familiar with the work of Julia Child, you’ll probably already know that clafoutis is traditionally a french dessert made with berries. I had no idea what it was until Hubs surprised me one morning with clafoutis for breakfast.

But the even bigger surprise was that he made it savoury! This savoury tomato shallot clafoutis is perfect for a light breakfast, brunch or even dinner.

Summer’s Bounty

Cherry tomatoes are bursting with sweetness this time of year so we just had to use them in season! Now that I think of it, tomatoes are actually a fruit so it’s not too far off from the french dessert I guess!

However, the caramelized shallots definitely give this a savoury twist you’ll love.

Let it Cool

30 minutes after popping it in the oven, it’s ready. I don’t have a lot of patience when it comes to digging in. But if you eat this too soon, those tomatoes can be scorching hot and burn the roof of your mouth, so this is one time you'll want to let it cool first. If you make this recipe though, you'll find out that it's worth the wait!!
