Asparagus Gruyere Tart

Jan Mullikin


Saw this on Martha Stewart one time and now can use the new method to get the tender asparagus first before I bake it--thanks to Sherry Parfait! Sometimes I substitute mozzarella cheese as Gruyere can be pricey. Watch for those sales!

Is this not the prettiest presentation? And the robust flavor is just as impressive. These would be perfect to serve at a cocktail party or maybe a ladies luncheon... any time you want to make a tasty splash!

  • 1 pkg
    frozen puff pastry (phyllo dough)
  • c
    flour for work surface
  • 5 1/2 oz
    gruyere cheese (2 cups shredded)
  • 1 1/2 lb
    fresh asparagus
  • 1 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • pinch
    salt & pepper to taste

How to Make Asparagus Gruyere Tart


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Flour surface and roll puff pastry out into a 12 X 7 inch rectangle. (You can adjust it for your dish)
  2. With a sharp knife, cut 1 inch in from the edges every 1/2 inch over so you can braid the edges over for prettiness or leave straight as it keeps from puffing up too much.
  3. Bake until very lightly golden about 10-15 minutes depending on your oven. Watch it carefully!
  4. Remove from oven, sprinkle with Gruyere. Trim the bottoms of the asparagus spears to fit across the shell in a single layer. I alternate ends and tips sometimes. Brush with oil, season with salt & pepper and bake until tender 20 to 25 minutes. I will use Sherry Parfait's method of pre-cooking spears in olive oil in a skillet, just a little first to soften them before I bake them.
