Puff Pastry Egg Tarts

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts @EclecticEveryday

Last week when I made my Mixed Berry Napoleons, I made extra puff pastry for a quick breakfast the next morning. I split the puff pastry, added some Nutella and fresh fruit and served it to my overjoyed family. My husband loved those breakfast treats so much, he insisted I find more ways to incorporate puff pastry into our breakfast.

So this week, I decided to take puff pastry to a savory place with these little puff pastry egg tarts. These were so easy to make. You start by pre-baking the puff pastry. To make sure it doesn’t rise too much, I just cut the edge of the pastry and priced the bottom of the pastry with a fork. Then I put the egg in the pastry and baked it.

I love this recipe because you can really make it your own by garnishing with whatever toppings you’d like. Here I kept it simple by just adding tomatoes, spring onions and cilantro. You could also add any type of meat like bacon or sausage or any yummy cheese. Next time I’m thinking some queso fresco sprinkles with chorizo, tomatoes and cilantro.
