New Zealand Savories
I grew up calling these little egg tarts Savories and they really are no more than that; very simple to make and people love them - bacon and cheese how could you go wrong?! Just another quick appetizer option perfect for your next gathering!
  • 1 - 2 sheets puff pastry, enough for 12 3 inch rounds
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 2 strips of bacon, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup sharp cheddar, grated
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt and pepper
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a small skillet, add the olive oil and cook bacon and onions until the onions are translucent and the bacon is beginning to crisp. Remove from the heat and spoon onto a paper towel lined bowl and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together until combined and then fold in the grated cheese. Cut out twelve 3 ½ inch (96 mm) rounds from the puff pastry and place in a nonstick muffin tin, pushing down until pastry forms a cup. Spoon egg mixture into each pastry cup approximately ¾ full, followed by a sprinkle of the bacon and onion mixture into each. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.
