We take Sunday Brunch quite seriously in this house. Most weeks, we go out to one of the many delightful breakfast places in our neighborhood but some of the time, I really enjoy spending a lazy Sunday in my jammies and taking my time to make an excellent morning/early afternoon meal.
This one certainly didn’t disappoint. It was great served with a side of potatoes and bottomless mimosas See, it really is just like going out… and I didn’t even have to get dressed!
Baked Eggs in Puff Pastry – slightly adapted from I Will Not Eat Oysters
- 2 Sheets Frozen Puff Pastry, thawed
- 1 1/2 Cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 3 Slices Center Cut Bacon
- 4 Eggs
- 2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese, grated
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- Parsley, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Once cooled, crumble and set aside.
Unroll the puff pastry and cut out 2 circles on each sheet that are about 5 inches in diameter (I used a wide mouthed plastic cup to do this). Transfer to the parchment lined baking sheet and, without cutting all the way through, make a 1/2 inch border around each circle. Prick the inner circle with a fork a few times and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Remove from refrigerator and add bacon and cheese to the inner circles of each puff pastry disc. Bake for 8 minutes, until the border has risen. Remove from oven and ,using the back of a spoon, press the centers back down gently if necessary.
Break one egg into a small bowl, then pour into the center of the puff pastry plate. Repeat with each egg/plate. Season with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.
Bake for an addition 6-7 minutes until the eggs are set and the puff pastry is golden brown. Garnish with parsley.
