Well, here we are at another Monday. Where did the weekend go? Yesterday was a fabulous day at the beach, I didn't want it to end. Well as I mentioned the other day, I broke the cleanse. After barely three days! I have no will power. I wasn't sure what I was going to have for my first carb-fueled meal, but I had a little bit of puff pastry and a little bit of prosciutto in my freezer (a few things, I wasn't able to use up before I started the cleanse). I actually have quite a few things in my freezer. While I am not an actual participant, I am definitely following along in The Kitchn's Kitchen Cure challenge to get your kitchen in shape. I was partially inspired by the pizza I did a little while ago, the tart I made last week, and by this other tart I found on a random search at TasteSpotting. I seem to have a big F for FAIL over my head when cracking eggs onto pizzas and tarts, but that doesn't mean this wasn't good. The flavors worked well together and it was quick and easy for a Friday night dinner since the longest part of making this recipe, besides the baking, was from rolling out the dough. You just really can't go wrong with prosciutto, cheese, and eggs.
It's going to be 97 degrees today. Wonder if I can skip work and go back to the beach!
Prosicutto, Mozzarella, and Egg Tart
Makes 2 servings
2 rounds puff pastry, rolled out to about 6 inches in diameter
2-3 slices of prosciutto
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place each puff pastry round on the parchment. Score each shell with a one inch border, being careful not to puncture the dough. Prick the inside with a fork all around.
Top each pastry with the mozzarella, and then line the mozzarella with overlapping slices of prosciutto. Bake 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and the prosciutto is crispy. Place the baking sheet on a level surface and carefully crack the egg in the middle of the pastry. Bake for 7-10 more minutes until the egg whites have set and the pastry is golden. Top with the green onions and serve immediately.
