Breakfast Tart with Bacon and Eggs Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup crème fraîche
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 sheet store-bought Puff Pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 5 slices cooked bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup arugula, watercress, or microgreens
  • red pepper flakes, optional

How to Make this Breakfast Tart with Bacon and Eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a half-sheet baking pan with parchment.
  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, créme Fraiche, and chopped fresh parsley in a small bowl. Season with salt, pepper; set aside.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out thawed puff pastry sheet into a large rectangle that fits on the baking sheet. Score the puff pastry with a knife to create a 1-inch border. Dock the interior puff pastry rectangle with a fork. Then brush the border edges with one beaten egg. Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes to create maximum rise.
  4. Spread the créme Fraiche mixture in the center of the pastry. Place bacon strips or chopped bacon over the cheese mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown and the bacon is cooked through. Remove from the oven.
  5. Poach the eggs: While the pastry tart is baking, poach the eggs. Here’s a post on how we poach eggs.
  6. Remove the tart from the oven, season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with poached eggs and garnish with arugula, watercress, or microgreens. Serve immediately.

Puff Pastry Pro Tips

When working with puff pastry for this tart, be sure to create a 1-inch border around the pastry, and brush a beaten egg around the edges. This will give it that shiny, beautiful edge.

Dock the center with a fork to keep the interior from puffing. This will give a level base for the bacon and eggs.

One more tip… After rolling the pastry into a rectangle, square the edges with a knife or pizza cutter. I always get a great rise when I do this.

Poaching the Eggs

This easy breakfast tart is topped with 4 poached eggs. If you’ve never poached eggs before, it’s easier than you might think. Our post on making perfect eggs gives detailed poaching instructions.

For this tart, I poached the eggs for 3 minutes using a vortex swirl, explained in the egg post. The poached eggs cook perfectly every time.
