Puffed Pastry Egg Rounds


Puffed Pastry Egg Rounds

I love frozen puffed pastry!  Not only do I love the light and buttery texture of it, I also love that it brings out my creative side on different ways to use it.  I've cut triangles and filled them with Snickers, Caramels, Peanut butter cups and other candy. I've rolled out squares and wrapped a nice salmon fillet with some rice inside. I've made delicious chicken pot pies with a buttery puffed pastry on top. I've made many Hors d'oeuvres for guests at parties and an elegant Beef Wellington dinner to impress my guests.  But I think this recipe is one of my favorites.  There's just something about puffed pastry for breakfast and eggs are the perfect match!  You will love this recipe my friends.

Puffed Pastry Egg Rounds
 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed but still very cold
4 large fresh eggs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I use a silicon baking mat.

Place the sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured work surface and cut out four 5 inch circles.  I use a small bowl to make my circles. Transfer the puff pastry circles to the baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart, and with a small paring knife, cut a circle border about 1/4 inch from the edge of each circle.  
Next, using a fork, prick the centers of each circle.  Refrigerate the puff pastry for 15 minutes. Once pastry has chilled, place baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 8 minutes or just until the edges have risen higher than the center. 

Remove from oven and crack your egg in the center of each round.  Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper and bake for about 12 minutes or until egg whites are set.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with chives.

NOTE:  If you prefer, you can prepare your rounds and bake them in the oven until golden. Then make sunny side up eggs in a pan, using 4 inch egg rings for uniform shape and then lay them on top of your baked rounds with cheese.  This is what you see in the photo.

HINT:   You can also add fried bacon bits before baking your rounds for an extra treat!
