Ingredients

  • 12 Eggs + 1 extra Egg to wash the pastry

  • 1 kg puff pastry sheets (shortcrust works well too)

  • 150 g of bacon, chopped

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/2 tsp oil or butter to grease the muffin tray

  • 1 small white onion, finely diced

  • 1 cup grated cheese

Directions

  • Heat oven to 200˚C. Grease and line the individual muffin trays with pastry.
  • Sprinkle half of the bacon evenly into each lined muffin pastry case.
  • In a bowl, crack the eggs, and add the onion and cheese. Whisk gently with a fork.
  • Evenly pour the mixture into each muffin pan, being careful not to overfill.
  • Add the remaining bacon evenly on top of the egg mixture, then cover each one with a round of pastry. Pinch around the edges to seal the lid, then brush with an egg wash.
  • Prick a few holes in the lid.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 mins or until cooked and golden.
