For your mouth: Breakfast Tart

Hi Bold Bakers!

Imagine all the best bits of a homemade breakfast in one lovely handheld tart. My recipe for a Toaster Oven Breakfast Tart has got it all: crispy bacon, melty cheese, fresh spinach, and a perfectly cooked egg all atop a light and buttery piece of puff pastry. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

This recipe is the perfect marriage of incredible flavor and extreme convenience as it was made to be baked up in a toaster oven! No matter what kind of kitchen you’re working with you should be able to enjoy a gourmet homemade breakfast. My breakfast tart really my favorite kind of savory baking as this combination of flavors is a quick road big bold flavor!

What Is A Breakfast Tart?

If you’ve never had a breakfast tart before you are in for a savory treat! My Breakfast Tart is built on a puff pastry base then loaded with all of my favorite things to have for breakfast.

The tart is made in my favorite Sweet Creations Nonstick Quarter Sheet Pan 9″x13″x1″ which has a ridged bottom. The ridges in this pan lend themselves to a super even bake, making the puff pastry base of my breakfast tart crisp and golden brown. The tart takes only 15 to 20 minutes to bake and it takes care of everything, including melting the cheese and perfectly cooking the eggs.

[ Like “tarts?” How about this BOLD Toaster Oven Pop Tart for something sweet? ]

Normally when I make breakfast it can take ages, babysitting eggs, making toast, cooking messy bacon. This tart takes all the parts of breakfast I can’t go without and layers them beautifully on a puff pastry crust. Baked perfectly in my toaster oven, this really is one of my favorite breakfast tricks for making a killer breakfast any time and literally anywhere.

Can you use store-bought puff pastry?

While I encourage all of you Bold Bakers to try my homemade puff pastry recipe, you can 100 percent use store-bought instead. In this case, the star of the show really is the combination of flavors in the toppings.

As long as you properly bake the puff pastry you can achieve the same tasty result with a store bought crust as opposed to homemade.

What is blind baking?

Blind baking the puff pastry base of the breakfast part is a super important step to creating a lovely breakfast tart. For those who don’t know, “blind baking” is baking the pastry on its own without any of the toppings. You can think if this as a pre-cooking process that will ensure your pastry is cooked through to the bottom without overcooking the delicate toppings.

Ingredients

Puff Pastry Crust

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, homemade or store bough, trimmed to a 9 x 13 inch rectangle

Toppings:

  • 4-6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 7 strips thick cut bacon, pre-cooked
  • 1/2 cup cooked spinach, fresh or frozen
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Instructions

  • First, preheat your oven to 400oF (200oC). Place your puff pastry in the Sweet Creations Nonstick Quarter Sheet Pan 9"x13"x1". 
  • Using a small knife gently cut a 1" border around the edges of the puff pastry without cutting all the way though the pastry. This will help form the outer crust of the pastry after its blind baked.  
  • Then, with a fork pierce the center a few times. This will prevent the middle from rising up too much during the blind baking. 
  • Next blind bake the pastry by baking it on its own for 8-10 minutes. This will ensure the puff pastry is cooked through. 
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cheese over the middle. Then layer on the spinach and bacon, arranging in one even layer across the tart. Lastly, crack on the eggs leaving space between each one. 
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the white of the egg is fully cooked and the yellow of the egg is set on the outside but still a little runny. if you only like you eggs firm feel free to bake for a few minutes longer.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting into individual portions with a knife or pizza cutter. Cover and store in the fridge for 1-2 days.

Made it kosher with fried mushrooms instead of the bacon and used mozzarella because i didn’t have cheddar. Simply amazing. Easy and tasty.

I made this again – and it was so good!! 🙂 I didn’t put enough holes in the crust and it REALLY puffed up!! LOL! Putting the eggs on this time was a bit of a struggle. However – I AM going to start making my own puff pastry; it was very disappointing to read the ingredients on the pre-made puff pastry which included palm oil. So glad you have a recipe to try!!

I’m not a fan of over easy eggs. Can I beat the eggs and carefully pour on top of everything and bake?
Thanks!
