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!

Ingredients

  • 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

    olive oil
  • pinch
    salt & pepper to taste

How to Make Asparagus Gruyere Tart

Step-by-Step

  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.
