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!
- 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
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Lay out pastry slices to defrost.
- Finely chop onions
- Roughly chop bacon into pieces about 2cm x 2cm.
- Fry bacon for a couple of minutes in olive oil and then add onion and cook until soft.
- Set aside until ready for use.
- Gently beat eggs, then add milk and beat further until well combined. Set aside.
- Cut each sheet of pastry into quarters. The size of the pastry square needed will depending 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 of the length and width of the sheet of pastry and then cut it into quarters
- Spray the trays with a cooking spray, too make sure the tarts don’t stick.
- Line all muffins tins with the pastry. Keep all edges pointing in an upward direction.
- Spoon some of the bacon and onion mixture into each pastry case.
- Sprinkle a small amount of cheese into each case.
- Pour egg mixture into each case slowly until the contents are well covered.
- 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.
- Remove immediately to cool on a wire rack.
- This will make 20 tarts.
