Bacon, Egg and Tomato Breakfast Tarts
Bacon, Egg and Tomato Breakfast Tarts are a complete breakfast made with buttery, crispy puff pastry. Easy to assemble, the whole family will love these for weekend breakfast or brunch They are easy to assemble and all cook at the same time. Happy cook, happy family.
The cherry tomatoes at this time of year are so sweet and good. They are also the ideal size for these tarts (or tartlets, if you like).
Now, they may be labeled ‘breakfast, but truthfully, this is perfect for any meal of the day. Nutty gruyere, sweet cherry tomatoes, smokey bacon with a little chive onion bite all bathed in a runny egg yolk. Hungry yet?
This is your bacon and egg breakfast taken to the next level. I mean, how good is puff pastry? Frozen puff pastry is one of the best inventions because I made puff pastry once and it is so time consuming.
The cheese: A good melting and strong flavor cheese like a sharp cheddar, or my favorite, nutty gruyere is best. Goat cheese would also be a delicious option.
When it comes to assembling the tarts, how you want to layer is up to you. But you must leave a little well in the center for the egg. I find that the careful placing of the tomato slices and bacon create a good barrier to prevent the egg white from spilling out.
I like to make individual tarts rather than one large one that you have to cut because it is easier and everyone gets a good amount of the toppings rather than having to make sure they are evenly spread out onto a large tart.
