Makes 4

  • 4 JUST Egg Folded
  • 1 box of puff pastry or 6 oz homemade pastry dough
  • 1 large heirloom or roma tomato, sliced thin

    Large baking sheet

  • Pastry brush

01 / 07

Thaw the pastry dough


Thaw 1 sheet of the puff pastry as directed on the package. Whether you’re using store-bought or homemade pastry dough, you’ll need enough for 4 servings.

02 / 07

Prepare the baking sheet


Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. When the puff pastry is thawed and ready to use, drizzle a bit of olive oil in four evenly-spaced places on the baking sheet to serve as the base of your pastries.

03 / 07

Layer on the tomato and JUST Egg


Pull the JUST Egg Folded from the freezer and remove the folded eggs from their packages. Slice the tomato thinly and arrange 1 to 3 tomato slices (depending on the size of your tomato) closely overlapping one another on each of the oil drizzles, followed by a JUST Egg Folded. It’s okay if the tomato sticks out from under the egg a bit – the tomato will shrink as it cooks.

04 / 07

Layer on the puff pastry


Cut four servings of the puff pastry into rectangles (a standard sheet is about 6 servings). With a rolling pin, roll them out to size such that the piece covers the JUST Egg Folded completely with about ½-inch border around the edges. Place each piece of pastry on top of the JUST Egg Folded and press down all four sides.

05 / 07

Brush with egg wash (optional)


In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons of pourable JUST Egg with 2 tablespoons of water to make an egg wash. Use a pastry brush to coat the top of each pastry.

Bake the pastries


Bake for about 20 minutes, until the pastry is golden-brown around the edges. Use a thin spatula to gently flip them onto a cooling rack.

Garnish and serve


Sprinkle each with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Enjoy immediately.
