Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 oz.) refrigerated puff pastry dough
  • 1 lb Italian sausage links, casings discarded
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
  2. Roll puff pastry on floured surface into a circle approximately 13 inches wide. Press dough into an 11-inch tart pan. Place a piece of foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray over the dough and fill with dried beans or pie beads. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.
  3. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large skillet over moderately high heat, breaking it up as it cooks, until the sausage is no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Drain well. Transfer sausage to large bowl and add the tomatoes, garlic, basil, pepper, salt and cheese.
  4. In separate bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and milk together. Combine both mixtures; mix well.
  5. Pour into the baked shell and bake an additional 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes or until egg mixture is set and golden. Remove from oven; cool 5-10 minutes before cutting.
