OVERVIEW: HOW TO MAKE EGG TARTS

  1. Thaw frozen puff pastry per the package instructions.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Unfold and place a thawed sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured, flat surface. Lightly roll the puff pastry dough with a rolling pin to help remove the creases from being folded in the box.
  4. Cut the sheet of puff pastry dough into four equal-sized squares, brush of any excess flour, and place each square onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place a ramekin in the center of each puff pastry square.
  6. Crack an egg into a small dish, whisk it, and add an egg wash to the puff pastry that is exposed around the ramekins (do this by brushing the egg onto the puff pastry with a pastry brush).
  7. Bake the puff pastry squares with the ramekins on them for 10 minutes, until very lightly browned and puffed up around the ramekins to create a well.
  8. Take the baking sheet out of the oven and remove the ramekins from the puff pastry squares (note: if they stick, gently run a spoon around the edge of the ramekin to loosen it).
  9. Add a slice of coppa ham and sprinkle of shredded parmesan cheese to each square. Then very carefully pour a cracked egg into each well. Top each egg with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  10. Gently place the tray back into the oven and bake for another 10 minutes (or until the eggs are set to your liking).
  11. Remove the egg tarts from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!

With these delicious puff pastry egg tarts as your brunch’s main dish, adding in a few key elements to fill out your menu will ensure a great time is had by all!

  • Add a sweet treat or two to balance out your savory main dish. Great options include muffins, tarts, scones, or donuts. These double chocolate zucchini muffins or these lemon blueberry donuts would be great for a spring or summer get together.

EXPERT TIPS

Place your meat on the edge of your “well”! This will help ensure you have enough room for your egg, and also creates a lovely pop of color / visual interest on your egg tart.

Don’t have coppa ham in a store near you? Here are some substitutions! Depending on where you live, coppa ham may or may not be available in a store near you. Alternative options include prosciutto, deli ham, or even cooked bacon!

Don’t have ramekins to create your wells? No problem! You can create your wells with another small oven safe vessel or create one by wrapping tin foil around a glass to create a circular shape and weigh it down with pie weights or dry beans.
