  1. I halved the recipe and used a different keto crust recipe as I had some leftover, and my husband and I enjoyed this for dinner with some keto marinara sauce. I baked this in a smaller pie dish so my filling was deeper and took longer to bake but it was worth the wait. Next time I may add some paprika and cayenne pepper to the filling, and perhaps some more herbs too. Sauteed oyster mushrooms would also be lovely, I suspect, or bits of sun-dried tomatoes or roasted/sauteed bell pepppers, just to give it a bit of oomph. The possibilities are endless! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe 🙂

    Hi Gerri!

    I made the 3 Cheese Pie today with a few minor variations. As my palate is rather sensitive to fresh Rosemary (it seems very strong to me), I cut the amount in half (to 1 Tbs) as well as the thyme to 1/2 Tbs (to keep the herbs balanced). It was still almost too much Rosemary for me, and next time I’ll likely halve it yet again, to 1/2 Tbs. I added no salt, as I figured that the Feta cheese would add enough (I was right about that). The bake time was 25 minutes. I served it with steamed broccoli with fresh lemon (to squeeze over the broccoli) to balance out the richness of the tart, as well as a few cherry tomatoes for a splach of colour. The Verdict? This was quite good. I could see myself making this with other cheeses and spices. Ten servings seems a bit meager to me; next time I’ll cut this tart into 8.

    Thanks for all of your hard work. It is deeply appreciated.
