  • Preheat oven to 220˚C, 425˚F, Gas Mark 7. Prepare Cheddar Cheese Sauce according to packet directions with milk. Cool completely and set aside.

  • Lightly dust work surface with flour. Unroll puff pastry sheet. Roll puff pastry to approx. 23x35cm (9x14inch) rectangle. Place the pastry on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; score a 1.5cm (1/2inch) border on all sides of the pastry with a sharp knife. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.

  • Spread Cheddar Cheese Sauce on the pastry inside score lines. Arrange asparagus and smoked salmon on top. Sprinkle with Tarragon. Bake for 15 minutes. Crack 4 eggs evenly on top of tart. Return to oven and bake for 4-6 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and egg is cooked.

  • Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
