Savory Egg Tarts

These Savory Egg Tarts are a great take on popular hand pies and can easily be customized with your favorite toppings and fillings. What makes these tarts so delicious is the flakey pastry that just melts in your mouth with every bite. We found that the key to making these tarts is to pre-bake your pastries so that they create a solid foundation to hold all your fillings. Plus, this handheld lunch is perfect to take along to the beach or pool, no dishes or utensils required!


Ingredients (serves 4)

4 large Noah’s Pride eggs

1 package puff pastry

2 large brown mushrooms, sliced

½ cup white cheddar, grated

6-8 slices bacon

cherry tomatoes

fresh thyme

crushed red pepper


  1. Cut your puff pastry into 4 even squares and place on a parchment lines baking sheet. Score a rim around the inside of the pastry, cutting about halfway through, this will help create a “pocket” for your fillings.
  2. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or until the pastry just begin to turn golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in a pan, fry up your bacon to your liking, drain and set aside. Then, sauté the mushrooms in the same pan with some of the bacon grease until tender.
  4. Once your pastries are baked, use a spoon to push down the inner cavity that we scored to create a raised rim or “boat.”
  5. Carefully arrange some mushrooms along the bottom of each tart and top with grated cheese and bacon before breaking an egg into each tart. Top with cherry tomatoes and fresh thyme if desired.
  6. Return tarts to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the eggs are cooked and set to your liking. Garnish with crushed red pepper and enjoy!
