what if i fall? but oh my darling what if you fly?

it has been a super busy couple of weeks.  i know i say that often but it truly has.  i am ready to totally leave winter in the dust. on to new adventures on every front. (i'll share more on that later)

it's easter weekend (not sure how that happened so fast) but in any case i wanted to share this super easy egg tart.

1 sheet puff pastry dough
1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 teaspoon water
3 ounces crème fraîche
2 ounces shredded gruyère cheese
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
8 bacon slices, cooked until crisp
3 eggs
10 fresh chives, snipped into 1/2-inch lengths


thaw the puff pastry dough according to the package instructions.
preheat oven to 425°. line a half-sheet pan with parchment paper.
on lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to 1/4-inch thickness and cut into a 10-by-8-inch rectangle. transfer the pastry to the prepared baking sheet. using a paring knife, score a border 1/2 inch in from the edge of the pastry. using a fork, prick the center of the pastry. brush the border with the egg wash and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
in a small bowl, stir together the crème fraîche and cheese, and season with salt and pepper 

spread the crème fraîche mixture on the pastry, keeping the border clean. lay the bacon on top, slightly overlapping the slices. bake the tart for 14 minutes, rotating the baking sheet halfway through baking.
remove the baking sheet from the oven, and place it on a level heatproof surface. using a fork, prick any large air pockets in the pastry. crack the eggs onto the tart, spacing them evenly over the pastry. 
put back into the oven and bake until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still soft, 7 to 10 minutes.

garnish with the chives, and serve immediately

love sent, xo
happy easter everyone!!
