Pregistry’s Friday Recipe: Puff Pastry Breakfast Squares

These easy breakfast pastry squares are much easier to make than their fancy appearance would suggest – making them a total win-win!

The secret is frozen puff pastry sheets. Simply thaw and cut into squares, top with your fillings and bake! 

These are a nice change from the usual breakfast fare, and are as easy to whip up on a hectic weekday morning as they are special enough to serve to guests for brunch!

Puff Pastry Breakfast Squares:

  • One sheet (half of one 17-ounce package) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 4 large eggs
  • Thinly sliced scallions or chives
  • Parmesan cheese, sliced into strips using a vegetable peeler
  • Flaky sea salt and cracked black pepper

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Unfold the thawed pastry and roll into a square approximately 12” x 12”. Cut the sheet into four squares and fold in the edges of each square to make a 1/4” border. Prick the centers of each square with a fork.

Transfer the squares to your baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and place 2 pieces of prosciutto in each square, creating a “nest” for the egg. Gently crack the egg into the center. Return the pan to the oven and bake until the whites are just set, about 7 to 9 minutes. 

Transfer pastries to individual plates and top with chives, parmesan slivers, flaky salt and cracked black pepper. Serve immediately.
