I really want some but not entirely sure if it is safe to eat

Its been cooked in an oven if it is in a tart. Lovely.

Why would it not be safe?

Go for it, the eggs will be cooked if it's set fully.

Not sure why it wouldn't be safe, I have pregnant women paranoia grin

Thanks Jamesandthegiantbanana, I'm gonna have myself the biggest slice!!

Eggs and milk are good for the baby, so tuck in. Think of it like a slightly less healthy quiche. grin

If it's cooked there is no issue at all.

Even if eggs are not cooked (e.g. soft boiled egg or chocolate mousse etc) then I have to say I've never really worried too much about it provided I know that the eggs used are lion marked (i.e. have a stamp of a red lion on them) which pretty much every egg in the UK is. The lion mark means that the flock has been vaccinated against salmonella - it's not 100% effective but greatly reduces the risk so I have tended to be fairly relaxed (but obviously that's your choice ultimately).
