Asparagus Gruyere Swiss Tart is an easy asparagus and cheese tart made with fresh asparagus, sour cream, shredded Gruyere, and Swiss cheese.

Asparagus Gruyere Swiss Tart

Our Asparagus Gruyere Swiss Tart is a very simple recipe and practically effortless!  I made 2 asparagus tarts in a matter of a few minutes.

I found shredded Gruyere and shredded Swiss cheese already blended in one package (at Trader Joe’s).  Making this tart even easier and faster to put together. 

The blend of these two kinds of cheese, both Swiss and Gruyere melted in this tart is the key to its amazing flavors.  They make this asparagus tart very flavorful.

Tips for Success:

  • You can substitute the cheeses with fontina cheese if you like.
  • Thin asparagus bakes very quickly, which is why you need to bake the dough for 10 to 15 minutes before laying the spears down. 
  • However, if you buy the medium size or larger ones, keep in mind you can layer them without baking the crust, and then fully bake the tart for the entire 22 to 25 minutes.
  • Also, the ingredients are enough for one asparagus tart. 
  • Besides, I found out after placing the spears in a single layer, it left me with enough asparagus to make 2 tarts.  But remember you will need to repeat the other ingredients for the second tart as well.

“Besides its wonderful flavors, the lightweight and crispiness of the crust you’d get in every bite, well – I must tell you – I couldn’t stop eating it.”

Ingredients Overview:

For this asparagus tart recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

  • one box of frozen puff pastry
  • 1 pound of fresh asparagus (thin ones)
  • some sour cream
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • a blend of shredded cheeses – a shredded mixture of Gruyere and Swiss cheeses
  • and two baking dishes

Directions To Make Asparagus Tart:

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204C).  Lightly spray a 9 x 12 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

2.  Remove the pastry sheet from the package and place it onto the counter to thaw for a few minutes, until the dough unfolds easily. Roll dough out onto a floured surface to fit into a 9 x 12 rectangle. Place it inside the baking dish.  Don’t worry if it’s too big for the dish, you will need a little excess dough to fold over all the edges to create a border.

3.  Using a fork, pierce the bottom of the dough.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until you see if it starts to turn a golden color.

4.  Remove from oven, and spread the sour cream on the bottom.  Then sprinkle on top with the cheeses.

6.  Drizzle with olive oil on top and season with salt and cracked pepper to taste.

7.  Bake for an additional 12 to 14 minutes or more, or until spears are tender and the crust is golden brown.  Cut into squares. Serve warm.  Yields: 12 squares

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 x 12 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

Don't worry if it is too big for the dish, you will need a little excess dough to fold over all the edges to create a border.

Notes

Thin asparagus bakes very quickly, which is why you need to bake the dough for 10 to 15 minutes before laying the spears down.

However, if you buy the medium size or larger ones, keep in mind you can layer them without baking the crust, and then fully bake the tart for the entire 20 to 22 minutes, or more until the crust is fully baked and golden brown.

Also, the ingredients are measurements for one asparagus tart. However, I found that after placing the spears in a single layer, it left me with enough asparagus to make 2 tarts. But remember you will need to repeat the ingredients for the other tart as well.
