Asparagus and Egg Easter Brunch
- 1 roll Frozen Puff Pastry defrosted
- 2 TB Olive Oil
- 250 g Asparagus I like to use the smaller, young variety
- 1 TB Fresh Garlic crushed
- Salt and Black Pepper to taste
- 6 Eggs
- 100 g Feta Cheese Crumbled or cubed ( 3.5 oz )
- 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley chopped
- 6 slices Deli Meat Prosciutto or any shaved, smoked ham
Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) – Line a baking sheet with baking paper
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
Meanwhile, heat the Olive Oil in a skillet – add the Asparagus and Garlic – cook and stir for 3 minutes – remove from heat and season with Salt and Black Pepper to taste
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)
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 and Black Pepper to taste – bake another 10 – 15 minutes, depending on the way you like your Eggs cooked
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 fresh fruit and yogurt on the side.
