This recipe is awesome. Not only is it delicious but it's so pretty to look at too! You can do the majority of the work before you have your guests over to make it even easier when they arrive. You can have this for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner. Very versatile meal.


Puff pastry sheet 1 , thawed
Butter 1 Tablespoon
Shallot 1 , diced
Garlic cloves 2 , mince
Asparagus 1 Bunch (100 gm) , ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
Red pepper flakes 1/4 Teaspoon
Frozen peas 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Zest of lemon 1/2
Eggs 4
Salt and pepper To Taste
Crumbled feta 1 Tablespoon (as needed)



1.Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.



2.Roll out the thawed puff pastry on a floured piece of parchment and cut it into 4 rectangles.

3.Put the parchment paper on a sheet tray. Using a fork pierce the center of the puff pastry, leaving a half inch border around the sides untouched.

4.Put the puff pantry in the oven and let it cook for 10 minutes.

4. While the puff pastry is cooking heat up a saute pan over medium high. Add the butter and once melted add the shallot, cooking for about 5 minutes.

5.To the shallot add the minced garlic and asparagus pieces. Let it cook stirring often for another 5 minutes.

6.Add the frozen peas, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, salt, and pepper and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.

7.Using a spoon push down the center of the cooked puff pastry and add a few spoon fulls of the asparagus mixture.

8.Crack an egg on top of the mixture very slowly. Beware: the egg has a tendency to want to run everywhere.

9.Once all of the eggs are on top sprinkle them with some salt, pepper, and crumbled feta and put them into the oven to let them cook for another 12-14 minutes, or until the egg whites are set up but the yolk is still runny.



10. Pair it with a mimosa and you have the perfect brunch. Yum!
