Quick Egg And Bacon Tarts

I made these tarts for Christmas Breakfast. I had intended to make the Sun Dried Tomato and Fetta Tarts, but one of the kids suggested that I should put bacon in them to make them “more like breakfast”. I didn’t think that bacon would go particularly well with this recipe, so made up a new style of tart for us to have for breakfast. Even the baby enjoyed having some of the tart!

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion
  • 12 rashes short cut bacon
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 5 sheets puff pastry
  • 100 grams tasty cheese grated
  • 12 eggs
  • Approx 100 mls milk
  • Cooking spray

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Lay out pastry slices to defrost.
  3. Finely chop onions.
  4. Roughly chop bacon into pieces about 2cm x 2cm.
  5. Fry bacon for a couple of minutes in olive oil and then add onion and cook until soft.
  6. Set aside until ready for use.
  7. Gently beat eggs, then add milk and beat further until well combined. Set aside.
  8. Cut each sheet of pastry into quarters. The size of the pastry square needed will depend on the size of muffin trays you use. I used a combination of the extra large tins, which meant I used the entire sheet of pastry and cut it into quarters. For the standard muffin tins, I first cut about 2.5cm off the length and width of the sheet of pastry and then cut it into quarters
  9. Spray the trays with a cooking spray, to make sure the tarts don’t stick.
  10. Line all muffins tins with the pastry. Keep all edges pointing in an upward direction.
  11. Spoon some of the bacon and onion mixture into each pastry case.
  12. Sprinkle a small amount of cheese into each case.
  13. Pour egg mixture into each case slowly until the contents are well covered.
  14. Bake for approx 10 minutes at 200 then reduce heat to about 175 degrees Celcius and cook for another 10 minutes or until golden brown. Tip – if the tarts are under cooked they will be difficult to remove from tin.
  15. Remove immediately to cool on a wire rack.
  16. This will make 20 tarts.

    I make a similar tart but instead on puff pastry i use bread with the crust cut off to line the muffin tins, i also don’t bother frying the bacon off and omit the onion and then you literally have a last minute/easy dish!

    That would be a very quick dish indeed! Thanks for sharing your tart. Hope you are having a relaxing time over the Christmas break.

    I make something similar, but add grated zucchini because I like to kid myself that anything green must be good for me!

    It would be a great variation to add some zucchini and carrot – would bulk them up a it and it could make an easy meal one night!
