A Simple Asparagus Cheese Tart for Easter


1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed and rolled out to 11×17 rectangle
1 pound asparagus, washed and trimmed
1 cup grated Gruyere cheese
cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 large egg yolks
¼ cup light cream
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon chopped chives
ounces crumbled goat cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out the puff pastry and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Prick it all over with a fork and bake it for about 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the trimmed asparagus for about 3 minutes, or until a fork can just spear it and it is bright green in color. Drain the water and run the asparagus under cold water to stop it from cooking.

3. In a large bowl whisk the cheeses, egg yolks, light cream, salt, and chives. Spread this mixture over the pre-baked puff pastry, leaving a 1-inch boarder. Then arrange the asparagus on top of the egg mixture and dot it evenly with crumbles of the goat cheese. Bake the entire thing for about 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese mixture has puffed up.

4. Allow to cool slightly then serve in squares!
