This past Saturday I was at home (which is rare for me) for lunch. I was not feeling like eating the normal lunch items, and began rummaging through the pantry and refrigerator to find something to make. Lo and behold! All I needed was there! I was shocked, that there was no need to run out and buy any ingredients. The items I pulled out fit my craving for something fresh, a little healthy and that would fit with a nice glass of white wine, which was open in the refrigerator. This meal can be made for breakfast, lunch or brunch, and even a nice light dinner. It only feeds two, so if you want to serve more you should double this.
- 1 piece of Defrosted Puff Pastry ( I had one in the freezer and used the microwave – I don’t suggest that you do that)
- 2 Eggs Beaten with a Tablespoon of Milk
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheese (Choose your Favorite – I like Norwegian Jarlesburg)
- 1/2 Cup Pre-Cooked Vegetables (I had left over Broccoli and Spinach – Mushrooms would have been great also)
Feel free to add other items. If I had cooked bacon or some Proscuitto I would have added it. Like I said you can be as creative as you want, just think of those meats and vegetables that go well together.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Use a baking sheet and slightly roll out the defrosted Puff Pastry. Fold in the about 1⁄2 inch of the puff pastry to keep the ingredients from running out. Slightly prick the pastry so it does not puff up too much during baking. Pour in the egg mixture, sprinkle the vegetables, meat if using and cheese over top.
Place on the center rack. Keep an eye on your pastry if it starts to puff up too much and looks like the ingredients may run off, pop the air bubble. Bake for 15-20 minutes until pastry puffs and turns golden. Remove from oven (it will deflate).
Enjoy with a nice side salad.
