Asparagus & Egg EASTER Brunch

Asparagus and Egg Easter Brunch

This is an excellent Easter Brunch. Filling enough to get you through to the main meal ...

Remove the Puff Pastry from the freezer the night before and keep in the morning it will be ready for use, and within 30 minutes it's ready to feed six, or make double and there is enough for a crowd!

Quick and easy, not a lot of dirty dishes and you have the rest of the day to prepare the main meal for Easter. 

Asparagus & Egg EASTER Brunch

1 Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted

2 TB Olive Oil
250g Asparagus {I used the smaller young Asparagus}
3 t Garlic, crushed
Salt & Black Pepper

6 Eggs
Salt & Black Pepper

100g Feta Cheese, crumbled or cubed
1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
6 slices Deli Meat  {Prosciutto or any shaved, smoked ham}

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2.) Roll out the Puff Pastry - paste a little water on all the sides and fold over to form an edge - place on the baking sheet and prick several times with a fork - bake 10 minutes.
3.) Meanwhile, heat the Olive Oil in a pan - add the Asparagus and Garlic - cook and stir for 3 minutes - remove from heat and season with Salt & Black Pepper to taste.
4.) Remove the Puff Pastry from the oven {if it has puffed a lot - prick a few times and press gently in order for the air to escape}.
5.) Arrange the Asparagus on the Pastry, inside the edges - Break the Eggs one at a time and add onto the Pastry as well - season with Salt & Black Pepper to taste - bake another 10 - 15 minutes, depending on the way you like your Eggs cooked.
6.) Remove from the oven - sprinkle the Feta cheese and Parsley over and arrange the Deli meat on top.

Give it a minute or so to settle.  Slice and serve with fruit on the side.

  4. Why is it that at most of the parties I link to every recipe I see and think, Oh this looks wonderful, takes me here to your blog???!!! I want to make this...but I don't love feta...what else can you recommend in the cheese category?
