The mission of the SEASons Senior Luncheons is to honor and serve the senior citizens of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who are all a vital part of our parish life. In an effort to show our appreciation, we come together for a meal with the purpose of providing fellowship, faith, love, and support. Volunteers are needed for set-up, decorating, food prep, dishwashing, serving, and clean up. We love including middle school and high school volunteers!

Serves: 8 slices

Ingredients

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

4 eggs

1 cup whipping cream, half and half, or whole milk

½ teaspoon kosher salt

A few shakes of Tabasco hot sauce

4 ounces smoked salmon, chopped in large pieces

¼ cup crème fraiche or goat cheese crumbles

2 tablespoons fresh dill

2 tablespoons chopped green onion

 

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the puff pastry. Trim the pastry into a circle so the pastry goes up the sides of a pie tin or baking pan. Trim any excess so it's flush with the top of the sides. Pierce the bottom of the pastry with a fork then prepare the pan for blind baking by placing a sheet of aluminum foil over the puff pastry and gently mold into the edges of the pan and up the sides. Top the foil with enough dry beans or pie weights to fill the pan. Bake the pastry for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl or 4 cup measuring cup, whisk the eggs, cream, kosher salt and Tabasco. Pour the egg mixture into the par-baked puff pastry shell then top with the smoked salmon pieces, and dot with crème fraiche or goat cheese, green onion and fresh dill. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the eggs are set. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving, or serve at room temperature. Top with more fresh dill and green onion and serve.
