Crispy golden puff pastry, creamy oozing French brie cheese, salty crisp prosciutto and fresh green asparagus topped with a free range egg – what’s not to love! These simple tarts are delicious for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner and take no time to make.
2 sheets of puff pastry
1 bunch of asparagus, stems halved lengthways
2 free range eggs
4 thin slices of prosciutto
100 grams of French Brie cheese, finely sliced
4 fresh thyme sprigs, leaves removed
1/4 of a cup of milk
Pre-heat oven to 180 Celcius (350 Fahrenheit). To make the tarts, take two square sheets of puff pastry and trim one inch off the edge of each side. Place on baking paper in a diamond shape. Add brie slices to the middle of the pastry, layer on top with prosciutto and asparagus stems. Top with a free range egg and sprinkle with thyme leaves. Carefully take each side of the pastry and wrap together like a parcel. Brush pastry with milk and place in oven on baking paper. Bake for approximately 15 – 20 minutes until the pastry is golden and the asparagus is cooked through. Remove from oven and season with salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!
