- 1 sheet of light puff pasty
- 4-8 rashers of bacon (smoked or not)
- 4 eggs
- a few asparagus spears
- 100g wild mushrooms (button, chestnut also work fine)
- 2-3 Swiss chard leaves and a few wild garlic leaves (substitute both for spinach if not available)
- 50g butter
- salt & pepper
- Crisp up the bacon in a pan, keep it aside.
- In the same pan, cook for a few minutes the asparagus and the wild mushrooms. Season lightly with salt and pepper. If you haven’t got any wild mushrooms, any will do. Keep aside.
- Prepare the puff pastry. I used light puff, it doesn’t rise that much. This step can be done in advance, before starting to prep the other ingredients. Divide into 4 equal parts. Using the tip of the knife cut through half the thickness of the pastry. Then prick the middle with the fork so in doesn’t raise the same like the edge.
- Place them on a tray and bake at 180C for 12 minutes.
- Sweat the Swiss chard and wild garlic for a couple of minutes in butter to soften, season lightly. Substitute for spinach if you want, or leave them out.
- Once the pastry is done, arrange all ingredients on the top. As you wish. I made two of them with wild mushrooms and the other two with asparagus. Any combination will do.
- Break the eggs on the top and bake again at the same temperature, 180C for 6 minutes or more if you want the eggs to be harder.
