Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll out the puff pastry sheet; cut into 4 squares measuring 5 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches.
  2. Then cut an outline, measuring 1/2 inch wide, around the square pastry; after it's cut carefully lift and remove (this will be used as a bow on top).
  3. Then score the outline of the tart making a 1/4 inch border; stab the inner-square of the pastry with a knife to keep the tart center flat as it bakes.
  4. Take square 1/2 inch wide tart and lay it flat on the surface; then lift/fold the corners so that they meet in the center, creating a bow.
  5. Brush egg wash over the bow as well as the border of the main tart.
  6. Place all the pasty components on a baking sheet; bake at 415 degrees F for 10 minutes.
  7. Spoon on and spread 2 teaspoons of pesto atop each baked tart; spread evenly.
  8. Add a layer of grated cheddar cheese.
  9. Then add several pieces of bacon and top with a raw egg.
  10. Bake again at 400 degrees F for 5-8 minutes or until the egg is cooked (sunny side.
  11. up style).
  12. Set the baked pastry bow on top.
  13. Add a sprig of thyme (optional).
