Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 piece Frozen puffed pastry, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 ounces various mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 4 ounces shredded gruyere cheese
  • mixed greens
  • poached eggs

Directions

  1. 1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Unfold the pastry and cut it into 4 rectangles (or squares, depending on the size of your pastry). Place the pastry on a parchment or Silpat-lined baking sheet and, using a fork, prick the dough all over.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and shallot and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the mushrooms are browned and tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook until nearly evaporated, about 1 minute more.
  3. Dividing evenly, sprinkle the pastry squares with half the cheese, leaving a ½-inch border on each. Top with the mushroom mixture and remaining cheese. Bake until the pastry is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Serve each tart topped with a poached egg and a side of mixed greens.
