With this recipe, you’re going to have a mouth-watering breakfast recipe with bacon and eggs in a puff pastry pocket; doesn’t that sound tempting to you?
For this recipe, you will start out preparing your breakfast ingredients as you would normally do. Specifically, you will need to fry the bacon crispy to your liking and scramble your eggs. All of these should be done before you roll out your puff pastry sheets.
It’s important to keep your eggs a little bit wet before placing them on the pastry sheets, as they will continue to cook together with the pastry in the oven. From my experience, you can try adding a knob of butter to your eggs while cooking them for extra flavors.
Making your puff pastry from scratch is also a terrific idea if you prefer a homemade dish with an authentic flavor of your preference. But to save you some time, ready-rolled puff pastry works out just as wonderfully as the homemade one. They will taste just as delicious.

A slab pie is a kind of pie that resembles a large rectangular pan in shape. Slab pies recipes are usually filled with sweet fruit jelly, like apple cinnamon or berry jelly. However, this recipe will do the opposite by using savory ingredients like ham and onions.
Ham, onions, and cheese are usually fillings of a sandwich. But imagine putting them on a pie in this case. That’s a whole different experience in terms of taste and texture.
What you will receive at first bite is a layer of flaky and buttery dough, together with some smoky ham, smooth caramelized onions, and some creamy cheese, all in one go.
Regarding the ingredients, you should pick Swiss cheese, whose subtle flavor won’t get greasy all over your puff pastry. In addition to that, make sure you caramelize your onion properly so that they have enough time to release the sweetness needed for the pie.

Originally, a quiche (an open pie) consists of eggs, bacon, and cream. But this recipe is much more of a modernized version where you add broccoli and cheese.
To save time and make things easier, you can even make a few extra batches of this recipe in advance and put them in the freezer. This way, you don’t have to think of what to make for your kids the next morning.
Normally, quiches are made out of dough instead of puff pastry. But by using puff pastry for this dish, you can ensure your quiche is going to turn out crusty and flaky, giving you that airy mouthfeel.

It’s common to see bacon-wrapped asparagus as a side dish that can be made with an air fryer even. But not every day do you see this combo in a tart.
It’s just amazing how puff pastry and bacon can go together so well in many recipes. And this one is no exception. Besides these two amazing ingredients, you can also see other exotic components like goat cheese, broccoli, and lavender honey.
That last ingredient I just mentioned is what makes this dish stand out. It’s something that gives off this aromatic, sophisticated, and pleasant flavor to the dish, together with the smoked ham and creamy cheese. That sensation is just like heaven on earth!

Although it is not common everywhere to eat sweet treats for breakfast, I can assure you that this recipe is nothing but perfection in a bite. These vanilla buns are excellent if you look for a small bite to go along with your morning coffee instead of a big meal.
This recipe for Vanilla morning buns is a combo of flaky cinnamon rolls and sweet, buttery croissants. And the key to achieving just that is vanilla sugar. It’s possible to use store-bought, but I strongly recommend making your own, which is shown in the recipe as well.

Similar to the previous recipe, Danish pastries are also common on a breakfast table. In this version, you would find it incredibly easy to prepare a beautiful batch of lemon strawberry pastries in no time.
This dish can be made with a few simple ingredients that you can easily find at your local stores, like strawberries, cream cheese, and puff pastry dough. And, since the puff pastry dough is store-bought, you will only need to spend time preparing your strawberries and cream cheese.
I prefer my Danish to be less sweet than usual, so I can enjoy the flavor of the strawberries better. So if you are anything like me, you can try going for less ripe or even frozen strawberries, which are not too soft and tender to achieve a less sweet taste.

You may be thinking this is the same recipe as the first breakfast pastry one I showed you. But this one is something quite different despite also being a bite-sized breakfast dish. Let me elaborate a little bit more on that.
These breakfast puff pastry pockets might seem like any other regular type at first sight. However, just when you bite into them, tiny pieces of apple will greet you, along with the familiar breakfast ingredients like sausages and eggs.
This recipe might suggest a rather creamy and filling flavor to the puff pastry pockets. So you might need an ingredient bold in the taste to throw off the greasiness from cheese, sausages, and eggs. In this case, the savior is apples.
The perfect type of apple for you to pick for this recipe has got to be Granny Smith. This is because Granny Smith apples don’t break down easily throughout the cooking process. Plus, they carry a sharp taste which creates that surprise factor for your breakfast pockets.

Earlier, I showed you a Danish pastries recipe using strawberries. Now, let’s do blueberries some justice because they are great at being a puff pastry ingredient as strawberries are. In some cases, even better!
This recipe calls for some fresh blueberries, usually from your local store or supermarket. But if you happen to have bushes of ripe blueberries in the garden that need picking, that will produce a superior result.
You can fill your Danish pastries with either blueberry jams or fresh ones, or both! One more thing you should keep in mind while making these is that your puff pastry has to be cold but far from frozen. Frozen puff pastry will cause your Danish to shrink while baking, so watch out for that.

If you’re bored of the same old regular sunny side up and looking for a change, this recipe is just the thing for you.
Regarding the ingredients, this is a simple puff pastry menu. They are all staples that you should already have around in your kitchen, like eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper. But it’s the very combination of such ingredients that gives such a special flavor to this breakfast baked goods.
Let’s bake your egg puff pastry to perfection so that you can enjoy runny eggs with a hint of melted cheese in your mouth. This is a rather subtle dish and not too overpowering, so you can pair it with almost any other breakfast food like bacon or sausages.
This is the best puff pastry baked eggs you should make.

Not everyone knows this, but potatoes are a great ingredient for puff pastries menus like quiche, pies, and, in this case, tarts.
A batch of potato tarts may sound like something plain in taste with only potatoes, garlic, salt, and pepper as the main ingredients. But there’s one item that’s bringing this dish to the next level, and that’s rosemary leaves.
By throwing in a couple of rosemary leaves on your puff pastry dough before placing the potato slices, the whole tray will be infused with a herby and earthy aroma, giving your potato tart that earthy taste. Not to mention, some cheese on top is going to make it creamier than ever!

You have to agree with me that the pecan pastry braid does have a fancy ring to it, right? Not only does it look appealing, but it also is a delightful treat to taste.
Looking at the ingredient list, I guess you can imagine how great this dish is going to be. There’s pecan mixed with salted butter and brown sugar, which altogether gives off a nutty flavor to the pastry braid. And finally, you have maple syrup blending everything into a sweet symphony.
And, to make it even better, this recipe for pecan pastry braid also calls for some drizzle of vanilla icing, which is sweet and creamy enough to balance the nutty and earthy taste of the filling. Doesn’t that make you want to hop right into the kitchen to try this recipe out?
Making a breakfast pecan pastry braid is just this easy.
Total time: about 15-35 minutes.

A tip to keep the strawberry jam from getting runny, try mixing it with some corn starch to keep them set and mess-free while baking.
