Havarti, Ham and Asparagus Tart
Impressive and simple ham and Havarti tart.
|Preparation Time:||15 minutes|
|Cooking time:||25 minutes|
- 100g havarti, gouda or edam cheese, grated
- 1 bunch young asparagus, trimmed
- 2 frozen sheets puff pastry, thawed
- 4 slices shaved ham
- fresh thyme sprigs
- freshly ground black pepper
Simmer asparagus in ½ cup water for 5 minutes until just tender, drain. Lay puff pastry sheets on top of each other onto a baking tray and lightly press together. Using a sharp knife, score a 1cm border around the edges. Top with ham and half the havarti. Arrange the asparagus across the pastry, alternating tops and tails. Sprinkle with remaining havarti, thyme sprigs and pepper. Bake at 220°C for 20-25 minutes until puffed and golden. If base of pastry needs browning, place on base of oven towards the end of the cooking time to crisp up.
