- 2 (17.3-oz) pkg. frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
- 6 fresh jumbo asparagus, trimmed
- 1 large carrot
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
- 8 large eggs
- ½ teaspoon black pepper, divided
- 3 cups loosely packed spring mix greens
- 1 radish, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Lay 2 puff pastry sheets end to end in prepared pan; cut off any excess dough. Press seam of 2 sheets together with moistened fingers. Repeat procedure, layering remaining 2 puff pastry sheets on top of first 2 sheets.
Using a vegetable peeler, peel asparagus and carrot lengthwise into strips. Reserve and set aside 1 cup of carrot strips. Using a 3-inch round cutter, lightly press 8 circles into puff pastry sheets. (Do not press all the way through the dough.) Spread asparagus and remaining carrot strips around the 8 circles; gently press vegetables into the dough. Sprinkle vegetables evenly with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack 5 minutes.
Using 3-inch round cutter, cut 8 circles from pastry, cutting all the way through to the pan. Remove pastry circles; discard or reserve for another use. Carefully break 1 egg into each hole. Sprinkle eggs evenly with 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Bake at 400°F until egg whites are set and yolks are still runny about 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool on rack 10 minutes.
Place greens, radish, oil, lemon juice, reserved carrot strips, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; gently toss to combine. Arrange mixture around eggs. Cut pastry into 8 pieces, and serve immediately.
