Preparation time 45 mins Serves 2 people


  • 4 slices prosciutto, roughly torn
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 sheet prepared puff pastry
  • 1 cup baby rocket
  • ½ cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • ¼ cup currants
  • Shaved Parmesan
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Place the sheet of pastry onto a baking tray. Using a small knife, score around the square 2cm in from the edge, making sure not to cut through the pastry.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the ricotta, Parmesan and currants, season with a little salt and pepper. Spread the cheese mixture into the inner square, leaving the 2cm border around the edge. Arrange the prosciutto on top.
  4. Place into pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes or until pastry is puffed, cooked and golden around the edge.
  5. Crack the eggs one at a time into a small bowl and just break the yolk with a fork, pour immediately onto the hot tarts and return to oven for 2 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and sprinkle with the rocket leaves and shaved Parmesan. Serve immediately.
