Whip up a half dozen of these sausage, egg, and cheese pastry cups for breakfast or brunch!
I am no stranger to puff pastry. With that said, I have to share this new idea I discovered!
In fact, I often look for it when I need to whip up a quick dessert for a party or holiday. I enjoy using puff pastry to make strawberry and whipped cream treats for a refreshing summer dessert, and I've enjoyed baking cran-apple crispy pastry braids for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Not too long ago I saw these Egg, Bacon, and Ricotta Breakfast Cups my friend Chrisy from Homemade Hooplah made (click here to see her original recipe and idea on her blog), and I was inspired to try my own spin on it!
Since trying this technique I found on Chrisy's blog, I've begun experimenting with less sweet and more savory ingredients than I have baked with puff pastry in the past. These sausage, egg, and cheese pastry cups are a perfect example of that--breakfast sausage patties topped with melted cheese and a baked egg, wrapped in a warm and crispy pastry cup. So delicious!
