  • 1
    roll readymade puff pastry, defrosted
  • 250
    crème fraîche
  • 100
    fresh sweet basil, coarsely chopped
  • 4
    slices of ham or finely sliced turkey roll
  • 4
  • 200
    cherry tomatoes or grilled tomato quarters


Preheat the oven 200°C.

Roll out the dough on a clean surface and divide into quarters. Make an incision 1cm from the edges of each square, without cutting right through. Place the squares on a greased baking tray and bake for 15 minutes until risen and almost cooked through.

Mix the sweet basil with the crème fraîche, season with salt and pepper and divide among the four tartlets. Cover each with a slice of ham and break an egg over the top. Garnish with a few tomatoes and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until cooked. Serve with extra sweet basil crème fraîche.
