Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Pastries

Yield: 9 pastries

Ingredients:

  • 9 slices center cut bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup torn baby spinach
  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, defrosted per package instructions (I used Pepperidge Farms)
  • 2 oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar, shredded

Directions:

  1. Cook the bacon according to package directions until almost crisp. Set aside on paper towels to drain.
  2. Combine the eggs and water in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Beat the eggs with a fork until combined. Mist a skillet with cooking spray and bring over medium heat. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, for a minute or two until wilted. Add the beaten eggs and stir to combine with the spinach. Push the eggs around with a spatula as they cook until the eggs are scrambled and cooked. Remove from heat.
  3. On a clean, dry surface sprinkle a small amount of flour to prevent sticking and lay down your sheet of defrosted puff pastry. Using a rolling pin, roll the pastry into a 13”x13” square of even thickness. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the pastry into 9 even squares (3 rows of 3). Fill a small dish with water and set near your surface.
  4. Take each pastry square and turn it to be a diamond with one corner pointing at you. Lay a slice of the cooked bacon on each pastry square from top corner to bottom corner. Divide the eggs among the pastries and spread over top of the bacon. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top of the eggs on each pastry. Wet your finger in the water dish and use it to wet the right side corner of a pastry square. Fold the left corner over the ingredients in the center and then fold the (lightly wet) right corner over and press it down to seal. Repeat with the remaining pastry squares. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer the pastries to the sheet.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400. Place the baking sheet into the freezer or refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to ensure the pastry is chilled (this makes it puff better). Transfer the sheet to the oven and bake for 16-18 minutes until pastry is golden.

    Hi girl, these look soooo good. How do you cook your center cut bacon to get it so crispy? I usually bake bacon but unless it’s thick cut it tends to burn or else be under cooked. I’m planning to make these next week!

      If I am just making a few pieces I do it in a pan but for bigger batches like this I bake it as well. I put mine in at 400 and check it at about 15 minutes to see if it needs more time. You don’t have to get it super crisp for this recipe because it will continue to cook in the pastry 🙂

    Hi, Could you use egg beaters in place of the eggs?

    Could you use egg beaters instead of eggs?

    • Emily Bites replied: — April 26th, 2017 @ 3:46 pm

      I don’t really egg beaters so I’m not super familiar with the product. I don’t see why not!

    Do you think you can freeze these?

    • Emily Bites replied: — April 26th, 2017 @ 3:46 pm

      Probably! I’d freeze them once assembled before baking.

    These look delicious but I am curious about the calorie count. When I googled the Pepperidge Farm puff pastry the nutritional i puff pastry it said that one of those is 160 calories for just the pastry. I was wondering how the whole thing comes out to be 159 cal?

    • Emily Bites replied: — April 30th, 2017 @ 9:43 pm

      Hi Karen, I think you will find if you look at the serving size that the nutrition information you are looking at is for 1/6 of the pastry where as my recipe serves 9 🙂

    These look delicious. Do you think these are good re-warmed for the next day? I like the idea of cooking these and using them throughout the workweek as a grab and take, or for the kids’ school breakfast, but I don’t want to cook them every day.
