  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Roll out each piece of pastry on a floured work surface to fit a 10 × 6in (25 × 15cm) rectangular tart pan. Use one of the pieces to line the pan, making sure that the pastry fits neatly into the corners.
  2. Scatter the ham evenly over the bottom of the pastry shell. Carefully break the 6 eggs into the shell, positioning them evenly, leaving the yolks whole. Drizzle cream over the top, and season well.
  3. Moisten the edges of the pastry shell with water, then cover with the other piece of pastry to make a lid. Trim away the excess, and press the edges of the pastry together to seal. Brush with a little of the egg wash, and bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or cold with a tomato salad.
