I wanted to make something easy and fast for breakfast that would "wow" my family (I love things that look hard but aren't), so I came up with these sausage and egg breakfast pastries.
I made them in minutes, and they came out tasting delicious. We all couldn't stop eating them, and I was a happy mom!
I used store bought puff pastry (****MY SECRET TRICK!****), topped it with shredded cheese and Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage, added cherry tomatoes, then I finished it with a fried egg.
The combination of the buttery crust, the smoky bold flavors from the sausage, the tang from the tomato, and the richness of the egg made this such a satisfying breakfast. My husband was sad when they were all gone. :)
Sausage and Egg Breakfast Pastry RecipeMakes 8 pastries
- 1 package puff pastry (2 sheets)
- 8 Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausages
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 16 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
- 8 eggs
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives for garnish
Preheat oven to 400F.
Lay out your puff pastry sheets and using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut it into squares, about 5"x 5". With a fork poke holes in the pastry to keep it from rising too much.
Top with cheese, sliced sausage, and tomatoes. Use about 1 sausage and 4 tomato halves per pastry. Bake for about 20 minutes.
While the pasties are baking, you can start frying your eggs. When the pastries are golden brown and puffy, top with a fried egg, then garnish with chives (or other fresh herbs). Enjoy!
The best thing about the Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausages is you get all the rich sausage flavor with virtually no prep. This is a huge benefit for my busy family. We can even eat these sausages for breakfast on a school day, which my daughter loves!
