How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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 dough.) Spread asparagus and remaining carrot strips around the 8 circles; gently press vegetables into 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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.
