READY IN: 58mins




  • Roll out the puff pastry sheet; cut into 4 squares measuring 5 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches.
  • Then cut an outline, measuring 1/2 inch wide, around the square pastry; after it's cut carefully lift and remove (this will be used as a bow on top).
  • Then score the outline of the tart making a 1/4 inch border; stab the inner-square of the pastry with a knife to keep the tart center flat as it bakes.
  • Take square 1/2 inch wide tart and lay it flat on the surface; then lift/fold the corners so that they meet in the center, creating a bow.
  • Brush egg wash over the bow as well as the border of the main tart.
  • Place all the pasty components on a baking sheet; bake at 415 degrees F for 10 minutes.
  • Spoon on and spread 2 teaspoons of pesto atop each baked tart; spread evenly.
  • Add a layer of grated cheddar cheese.
  • Then add several pieces of bacon and top with a raw egg.
  • Bake again at 400 degrees F for 5-8 minutes or until the egg is cooked (sunny side.

  • Set the baked pastry bow on top.
