We've used bought butter puff pastry for this recipe, but you could also make your favourite rough puff. Topped with shaved ham and a fried egg, these make great breakfast tarts.

You'll need

20 gm butter, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for shallow frying onions, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 egg yolk 30 gm crème fraîche 1 tsp Dijon mustard 120 gm Gruyère, coarsely grated ½ cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus extra to serve 1 tsp smoked paprika, plus extra to serve 1 (375gm) butter puff pastry sheet 6 eggs To serve: shaved leg ham

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Heat butter and oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and sauté until tender (8-10 minutes). Season to taste and set aside to cool.

  • Whisk yolk, crème fraîche and mustard in a bowl to combine, add Gruyère, parsley, paprika and onion mixture, season to taste and stir to combine well. Refrigerate until required.
  • 03

Score a 1cm border around pastry, prick within border with a fork and brush border with eggwash.
