Let's kick things off with my contribution, Sweet Potato Bacon Egg Breakfast Tart!

Sweet Potato Bacon Egg Tart


Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet store bought puff pastry

  • 1 5.2 oz package Boursin cheese

  • 1/4 cup ricotta (I like to use whole milk ricotta)

  • 1 small sweet potato

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 5 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

  • 3 pieces of cooked bacon

  • 1 avocado

  • Maldon sea salt to finish

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  • Peel the sweet potato and slice as thinly as possible, I like to use a mandolin but highly recommend a cut resistant glove

  • In a medium bowl toss the sweet potato slices in the butter, salt, sage and pepper

  • In a small bowl, mix the Boursin cheese and ricotta cheese

  • On parchment paper, unfold the puff pastry and gently roll out the creases

  • Leaving a 1 inch border, dot the pastry with a fork (see video), transfer the parchment paper onto a baking sheet

  • Spread the cheese mixture over the dotted are of the pastry in an even layer (you may have leftover cheese, its great on crackers!)

  • Arrange the sweet potato slices in an overlapping manner on top of the cheese mixture

  • Bake at 400 for 15 minutes (if your sweet potato slices are thicker, back for 20 minutes)

  • Crack the eggs on top of the tart, sprinkle salt and pepper

  • Return to the oven for 16-18 minutes or until the eggs are set

  • Grate parmesan cheese overtop

  • Sprinkle crumbled bacon and add avocado slices

  • Finish with maldon sea salt

  • Slice and enjoy!

Tips:


*If using frozen puff pastry, place it in the refrigerator to thaw at least 2 hours before up to the night before.

*I like to use the oven method for cooking bacon, lay out your bacon on a foil lined baking sheet, place in a COLD oven and turn on to 375 degrees, rotate sheets around 20 minutes, this method will take 25-30 minutes depending on how thick your bacon is and how fast your oven preheats. Keep a close eye on it to achieve your desired crispiness.

Now let's pour a mimosa and see what the other ladies came up with!
