Elegant, delicate and easy to make ahead of time, tarts are the perfect dinner party dish—and they don’t have to be for dessert. Here, seven incredible savory versions that will impress guests.

1. Red Potato and Apple Galette

The flaky, buttery crust of this elegant pastry is perfectly complemented by the decadent creme fraiche and tangy apple filling.

2. Savory Ricotta-Squash Tart

Instead of appearing in a soup, squash gets cut into rings, caramelized and baked in a tart that can be served with a salad as a starter, or as an unusual side dish.

3. Porcini Mushroom Tartlets

Hearty porcini mushrooms give these elegant, vegetarian tarts terrific umami flavor.

4. Curried Squash Galette
