I've been meaning to try this recipe for some time now. Got the recipe from the back of the Borg's brand (they did not have my favourite 'Pampas' that day) Frozen Puff Pastry packaging. I just love it when I get (good) recipes on packaging. This one sure is a keeper.
What's there not to love? I mean puff pastry...enough said. The filling is made up of mashed hard-boiled eggs and pre-fried bacon bits combined with some mayonnaise and pepper. Loved it!
What you need:
3 large eggs, hard-boiled
4 slices of bacon, chopped
1-2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 egg, lightly beaten for egg wash
1 tablespoon chopped Parsley (optional)
Sesame seeds (optional)
What to do:
Fry bacon until cooked. Mash hard-boiled eggs and add bacon, mayonnaise and pepper. I personally don't like to add too much mayonnaise. So I kept it to about 1 tablespoon. You can even throw in the 1 tablespoon chopped parsley if using.
Note: If you have leftover filling, use it to make a sandwich or a salad - just add some chopped lettuce leaves!
I recently purchased a pastry cutter from one of the baking shops nearby. Saw some chef using it on some programme on the AFC channel and decided I would like to try one out.
It made beautiful rings which I was able to fill up with the egg and bacon mix.
Fold pastry over to enclose and press the edges with a fork to seal. Brush tops with egg wash. Sprinkle top with sesame seeds if you wish...I didn't.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 200C for 15 minutes until golden.
