Sausage Egg and Cheese Pastry Cups

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! 

Sausage Egg and Cheese Pastry Cups

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 sausage patties
  • 1/2 cup of shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of parsley
  • 2 tablespoons of hot sauce (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). 
  2. Lay the puff pastry out on a clean surface such as a countertop or cutting board. 
  3. Cut the pastry sheet into six squares.
  4. Spray a 6 muffin pan with non-stick cooking oil. 
  5. Gently stretch each pastry square to make it just a little bit bigger, and place them into the muffin pan. 
  6. Stretch each puff pastry square as needed to ensure most of the inside of the muffin pan is covered. 
  7. Fill each cup with sausage, top it with shredded cheese, and crack an egg on top. 
  8. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. 
  9. Bake the pastry cups in the oven at 350 degrees (F) for 25-30 minutes, or until the egg is fully cooked.
  10. Remove the muffin pan from the oven and serve the pastry cups immediately. Enjoy!

    1. You can, but you may want to add something in place of it so that it is more full. Maybe add some spinach? I bet that would taste great!
