This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone. This Roasted Red Pepper Asparagus Egg Tart, made with marinated roasted red peppers, fresh asparagus, Monterey Jack cheese, and a sunny side up egg on a puff pastry square, is perfect for brunch, a weekend breakfast, or breakfast for dinner.
Welcome to day 3 of #BrunchWeek hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. This year is even bigger and better than ever! Thirty-eight bloggers from around the country are showcasing their best brunch dishes. We have so many delicious recipes for you to enjoy throughout the week (over 150!!) including cocktails, appetizers, pastries, tarts, main courses, and plenty of desserts! Our BrunchWeek Sponsors are helping us give away some great prizes. Thank you so much, Sponsors, for your generosity.
Today's recipe features several brunch week sponsors ingredients that are easy to find, including Michigan Asparagus and Cento Roasted Red Peppers. I've been wanting to make an asparagus tart for a while now, but I messed up a different kind of attempt, and then I put it off for awhile.
One of my most popular recipes from my early days of this blog is an egg tart recipe,so I decided to try again for #BrunchWeek. I absolutely love puff pastry tarts using store-bought puff pastry, they are so easy to make!
Defrost a sheet of frozen puff pastry, roll it out into a thin square, cut in into four equal squares, and roll up the edges slightly. Prick each square all over with a fork before baking.
Bake them for about 8 minutes, or until lightly golden, then deflate them with a fork.
Rinse and lightly pat dry Cento brand roasted red peppers, then chop them up.
Top the pre-baked puff pastry squares with sliced asparagus, chopped roasted red peppers, and shredded Monterey Jack Cheese. Make a well in the center of each square to put an egg in.
Carefully slip an egg into the well of each tart. Don't worry if it runs outside of the hole much, and if the whites run out of the square, you can push them back in with a spoon.
Bake for about fifteen minutes, or until the egg whites are set.
