Fancy a scrumptious home cooked brunch this weekend? We have the perfect recipe from the award winning  ‘I Am a Food Blog’ for you to indulge in. These beef and brie breakfast tarts are quick and easy for a fail-safe recipe. Just follow the steps below and enjoy……

Ingredients (makes 4 tarts)

12-18 Slices of thinly sliced roast beef or protein of choice

1 Small wheel of brie cheese, sliced thinly

Sprigs of fresh thyme

1 Sheet of Puff pastry, thawed

Mustard, to taste

1 Egg lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon of water

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Egg to serve if desired


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Slice the puff pastry sheet into four pieces and use a sharp knife to cut a 1/2 inch border around each square – you don’t want to cut all the way through the pastry, you just want to score the pastry so it creates a frame when baked.

Use a fork and poke inside the border to prevent too much puff. Place the pastry on a lined baking sheet and brush the edges with the egg wash. Bake for 15 minutes until slightly puffy and lightly golden.

If using eggs, fry the eggs while the puff pastry goes into the oven the second time around.

Remove the puff from the oven and brush with mustard and top with slices of brie and roast beef or meat of choice. Sprinkle on some fresh thyme and return to the oven and bake until golden and brie is melty, about 5-8 minutes. Remove, season with salt and freshly ground pepper and enjoy immediately.
