Breakfast Puff Pastry Pockets
To cook Breakfast Puff Pastry Pockets, you will need the following ingredients:
- Frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
- Cooked sausage, crumbled or sliced
- Shredded cheese of your choice
- Scrambled eggs
- Apple slices, cooked until soft
- Milk or egg wash for brushing
- Granulated sugar for sprinkling
The steps are as follows:
- Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Roll out the puff pastry sheets slightly on a lightly floured surface and cut each sheet into six equal rectangles.
- Place half the rectangles on the prepared baking sheet and leave space between them.
- Place a tablespoon of sausage, cheese, and eggs on each rectangle in the centre, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Top with a few apple slices if desired.
- Brush some water around the borders of the rectangles and place another rectangle on top of each one, pressing the edges together to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges and make small slits on the top of each pocket to let steam escape.
- Brush each pocket’s tops with milk or egg wash and sprinkle some sugar over them.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and puffy.
- Enjoy your breakfast pockets while they are warm, or let them cool completely and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for later.

Puff Pastry Breakfast Tarts
There are many ways to cook Puff Pastry Breakfast Tarts, but I will share one of the easiest and most delicious recipes I love. You will need the following ingredients:
- 1 Puff Pastry Sheet, at room temperature
- 6 teaspoons of Pesto
- 3 slices of Prosciutto, sliced in half
- 24 stalks of thin Asparagus
- about 1 cup of Shredded Cheese, like Manchego
- 6 Eggs
- Salt and Pepper
- Optional: Beef bacon, Feta Cheese, Chili Flakes, Green Onions or Chives
Here are the steps to make this recipe:
- Heat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Cut the bell pepper into small cubes, dice the onion, and finely chop the garlic. Heat butter in a medium frying pan over medium-low heat. Add the bell peppers and onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until softened. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl and chill in the fridge.
- Take the puff pastry out of the fridge when the vegetables are chilled. Roll it out slightly into a rectangle, then cut it into 6 squares. Score each square, creating a 1/2-inch (1cm) border (do not cut all the way through). Place the squares on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can brush the edges of pastries with beaten egg or heavy cream – they will have a nicer colour, but it’s optional. Bake for about 16-17 minutes or until nicely golden in colour.
- Take the baking sheet from the oven and reduce the temperature to 325°F (160°C). Using a spoon, press down the centre of each pastry square.
- Break an egg into each pastry square.
- Divide the vegetables around the eggs. Sprinkle with cooked crumbled Beef bacon, crumbled feta cheese, and chilli flakes (if using). Season the eggs with salt and pepper. Bake until the egg whites are set, but the egg yolks are still runny, about 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and sprinkle with finely sliced green onions. Enjoy!
