Quick & Easy Bacon, Egg & Cheese Tart // A deliciously rich breakfast that is ready in less than 30 minutes. Perfect for Sunday mornings or special occasions. | Tried and Tasty

I’ve said over and over again (as well as many others) how important breakfast is. This is one of those recipes I’ve been wanting to try ever since I received my issue of Food Network two years ago. I finally got around to making it! Eggs are always on hand in our house and finding new ways to use them (besides just scrambled) makes it nice to add a little variety to the routine. Unlike my Breakfast Pita Scramble recipe with eggs, this egg recipe is one that shouldn’t be eaten on a regular basis. With a wonderfully flaky crust you know it’s going to be good.

Layered with cheese, an egg, and bacon (yes please!) this is the kind of breakfast I imagine on Sunday mornings or special occasions. It was so fast to pull together and was ready in no time. Served with a tall glass of fresh squeezed orange juice, your family or guests will swoon. It seemed so decadent that I almost felt like I should be having it for dessert instead of breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry half of a 17-to-18-oz pkg., thawed
  • 1/4 c. real bacon bits
  • 4 slices havarti cheese
  • 3 tbsp. freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Parsley for garnish optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. On a lightly floured surface roll out puff pastry into a 12-in square; divide into 4 equal squares. Slightly fold and pinch the edges of each square to form 4 round tart shells.

  2. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and pierce all over with a fork. Bake 8-10 minutes (until golden).

  3. Let tart shells cool slightly on baking sheet. If centers are too puffy, press slightly to deflate. Layer each pastry with a slice of Havarti cheese followed by a small bit of Parmesan. 

  4. Make a shallow well in the cheese in the center of each tart and crack an egg into each. Season with salt & pepper. Sprinkle with bacon bits and return to oven. 

  5. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes until the egg whites are set. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Recipe Notes

You can also use grated havarti cheese instead of sliced. Either works! The grated may make it a little easier to make the well for the cracked egg (but the sliced worked just fine too!).

      Hi SB, that’s a great question! I haven’t personally tried it yet, but I imagine that these Breakfast Tart’s would freeze very well. Packaging them in single serving portions in airtight freezer bags would be a great way to make a grab and go (and heat) breakfast.

      I’ve adjusted the recipe – the nutritional information is an estimate and I have no idea where it gets the calculations. I need to compare it to my hand calculations and see what the actual is. Once I do that I’ll let you know!
