Breakfast Puffins
This recipe is so simple and so delicious and will completely wow the guests you serve them too!
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 2 sheets Puff Pastry, thawed
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup cooked and crumbled bacon, more for garnish
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¾ cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 9 slices cooked Bacon
  • 9 slices ham
  • 4 oz Velveeta cheese
  • ⅛ cup milk
  1. Cut each Puff Pastry sheet into 9 equal squares for a total of 18 squares and align on 2 cookie sheets.
  2. Cook Puff Pastry squares at 400 degrees F for about 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown in color. Remove from cookie sheet and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet, combine beaten eggs, crumbled bacon and milk. Cook scrambled eggs. For the last 30 seconds, sprinkle on shredded colby jack cheese and let melt.
  4. As best as you can, divide eggs into 9 equal portions placing 1/9 of scrambled eggs onto the flat side of one Puff Pastry square. Continue topping each of the 9 egg covered squares with a slice of ham (fold as needed) and 1 slice of bacon broken into halves. Place the flat side of a second Puff Pastry on top of each puffin.
  5. To make cheese sauce, combine Velveeta and milk in a small microwave size bowl and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring at each interval until melted smoothly together.
  6. Top each puffin with some drizzled cheese sauce and some additional crumbled bacon.

    I love the puff pasty swap, what a great idea, especially since I'm having a hard time making my own English muffins.
    Great star of the day and perfect for a breakfast for dinner night as well

    Where can I purchase puff pastry?

    1. Chef in Training

      at most all grocery stores. They are in the freezer section next to the frozen berries usually.

  20. Holly Koerber

    I wonder if you baked the egg ingredients in a casserole dish and then cut them in squares to fit the pastry?

  21. konnie

    in this context, what does "cumbered" bacon mean. I've never heard the term before. thanks. I run a b&b and love working with puff pastry and serving interesting new recipes to my guests. This one sounds wonderful.

    1. Debi

      It should say crumbled. Don't took me a few seconds to figure it out!

    2. Chef in Training

      yes sorry about that :) Thanks for catching it. All fixed now.

  22. Lana

    These look delicious! I will have to try them, but thinking maybe with hollandaise sauce instead of Velveeta?

    1. Bett

      I agree, I can't get myself to use Velveeta. Hollandaise sounds good or I'll just put some shredded cheddar on top and gently melt. Thanks for the hollandaise idea.
