Roasted Red Pepper and Egg Tarts

This week, #SundaySupper has a breakfast for dinner theme – one of my favorites so far – but since I posted a waffle recipe a few weeks ago, I wanted to make something more on the savory side.   These tarts, with their tangle of roasted red peppers and onions and sunny-looking egg, caught my eye as I was flipping through my copy of Jerusalem: The Cookbook and I knew they’d be perfect!

I cooked my eggs for 13 minutes – a little longer than the original recipe called for – and they came out just how I like them, with thickened jelly-like yolks that aren’t too runny. The tarts were unlike anything I’d ever eaten, yet they still seemed homey and vaguely familiar.

Paired with a simple salad of baby lettuce tossed with olive oil and my favorite blackberry-ginger balsamic vinegar, they made a great light meal that we both really enjoyed.

These simple tarts have a surprisingly bold flavor. Pair them with baby lettuce tossed with oil and balsamic vinegar for a light meal.

  • 2 red bell peppers cut into thin strips
  • 1 red onion cut into thin strips
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ cup loosely packed parsley chopped
  • ¼ cup loosely packed cilantro chopped
  • 1 sheet 1/2 package puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 6 tablespoons low fat sour cream
  • 6 eggs
  • sea salt and cracked pepper


  • Heat oven to 400*F. Pile the peppers and onion on a baking sheet. Pour oil over top and sprinkle with thyme, cumin, and coriander. Use your hands to mix everything together. Spread out into an even layer and roast 30 minutes.
  • Line a second baking sheet with parchment. Unroll the pastry onto the sheet and cut into six squares. Use a fork to poke indentations all over the pastry, leaving a 1/4 inch border around the edges. Refrigerate until ready to bake.
  • Increase the oven temperature to 425*F. Brush pastry with the beaten egg. Spread the center of each pastry square with 1 tablespoon of sour cream. Mix half of the parsley and cilantro into the roast vegetables then arrange onto the center of each pastry square, leaving a shallow crater in the center. Bake 10 minutes. Crack an egg into a small dish; carefully pour it onto one of the pastries, letting it settle into the crater that you left. Repeat with remaining eggs. Return to the oven and bake 10-15 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking.
  • Top with remaining herbs and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
