Potato Tart with Cheese (GF & No Crust)

Indulge in the delightful flavors of this cheesy potato tart with a hint of smoked paprika! Not only does it boast a tantalizing taste, but its vibrant presentation is sure to captivate your senses. The addition of sweet potatoes not only enhances the visual appeal but also infuses a subtle sweetness to every bite.

My journey with this potato and cheese tart began during the AcasaTV video interview, and since then, I’ve recreated it three more times. It has effortlessly secured its place as one of my go-to recipes! True to my cooking style, this potato tart is incredibly simple to prepare, requiring no specialized culinary skills. With the help of a mandoline, the slicing becomes a breeze.

Potato Tart with Feta Cheese

Adding sweet potatoes was a revelation for me. Surprisingly, it was my first encounter with this delightful ingredient! Their pumpkin-like flavor harmonizes seamlessly with the regular potatoes, elevating the taste profile of this savory tart.

Customization options

  • Caramelized Onions: Add a layer of sweet and savory flavor by incorporating caramelized onions into the tart. Simply sauté thinly sliced onions in olive oil until golden brown and caramelized, then spread them over the potato slices.
  • Crispy Bacon: For a smoky, non-veg and indulgent twist, sprinkle crispy bacon bits over the top of the tart before baking. The salty richness of the bacon pairs perfectly with the creamy potatoes and tangy cheese. For a vegan version, try my vegan bacon.
  • Fresh Herbs: Elevate the flavor profile of the tart by adding fragrant fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. Chop the herbs finely and sprinkle them over the tart before serving to impart a burst of herbal aroma and taste.
  • Roasted Garlic: For a more intense and complex flavor, roast whole garlic cloves until soft and caramelized, then mash them and spread the garlic paste over the crust before layering the potatoes and cheese.
  • Spicy Kick: For those who enjoy a bit of heat, consider adding sliced jalapeños or red pepper flakes to the tart. The spicy kick will contrast nicely with the creamy potatoes and cheese.

Cheesy potato tart recipe variations

  • Individual Mini Potato Tartlets: Instead of making one large tart, create individual tartlets for a more elegant presentation or to serve as appetizers. Simply divide the ingredients into smaller portions and press them into individual tart pans or muffin tins. Adjust the baking time accordingly until the tartlets are golden brown and cooked through.
  • Cheese Selection: Experiment with different types of cheese to add variety and depth of flavor to the tart. Sharp cheddar, Gruyère, or goat cheese can all complement the potatoes beautifully.
  • Herb Infusion: Infuse the cheese mixture with fresh herbs for an extra layer of flavor. Stir chopped herbs like parsley, chives, or basil into the cheese mixture before spreading it over the sliced potatoes.
  • Vegetarian Protein: Enhance the nutritional profile of the tart by incorporating vegetarian protein sources such as cooked lentils, chickpeas, or tofu. Mix the protein of choice with the cheese mixture before layering it over the potatoes for a hearty and satisfying tart.

  • 2 potatoes white, with thin skin, unpeeled and very well washed
  • ½ sweet potato large, peeled
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup feta cheese grated
  • 1 onion red, sliced
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 Tbsp parsley chopped, for garnish
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Using a mandoline, start slicing the potatoes and onion. If you don’t have a mandoline you can just slice them the usual way, by using a knife but it’s more complicated. A mandoline will save you a lot of time + all slices will have the same thickness.
  • Spray the casserole with some olive oil.
  • Place the white potato slices in the casserole in a circular way, one on top of half of the other, just like you do when you make apple pie for example. Add sliced sweet potato and onion, randomly, between the white potato slices.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk 2 eggs. Add grated feta cheese, salt, pepper, thyme. Pour this mixture ver the potatoes in the casserole. Using a fork, try to disperse the mixture so that most of the slices will be covered.
  • Place in preheated oven at about 180ºC/356ºF and cook for 30-40 minutes. Check if ready using a fork. If the potatoes are tender, it’s ready!
  • When ready, leave it a bit to cool. Remove from form and sprinkle with smoked paprika and fresh herbs.
