Bacon, Banana, and Brie Pastry Puffs
Breakfast is one of my most favourite meals. A new day begins, a fresh start – your slate is wiped clean, nothing better then eating a fulfilling breakie to put you in the right frame of mind.
I make these cheat pastry puffs with store bought puff as its quick and easy to throw together. It’s adapted/inspired from the book Back In The Day Bakery (which I love love – they do ham and cheese!). Cheryl Day is sooooo cute and her quirky little bakery in Savannah serves up all homemade goodies from scratch. This one is a treat, and you can change the filling to your liking ie sweet, savoury…I’ve done Bacon, Banana and Brie which is one of my favourite toppings 🙂

Bacon Banana and Brie Puffs
Spice Blend Ingredients (8 pastries):
½ tsp. onion powder
1 Tbs. chili powder
1 tsp. dried thyme
2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1 tsp. ground allspice
½ tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. garlic powder
fine sea salt, to taste
**I did not have onion powder so I omitted**
for the pastries:
1 (17.3 oz.) pkg. frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), defrosted
115 g cooked bacon or however much you may need
1 whole sharp Brie
1 egg, beaten w/ 1 Tbs. water, for egg wash
1 tsp. fine sea salt
2 bananas chopped finely
1.Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 400° /204c while its heating line your baking tray with parchment paper
2.For the spice blend add all the ingredients into a small bowl and mix
3.To make pastries make sure puff pastry sheets are defrosted. Lightly flour surface and unfold pastry onto it. Cut each piece into four squares.
4.Place your cooked bacon in the centre of the square along with a teaspoon of brie (or however much brie tickles your fancy!) add 2/3 slices of banana. Sprinkle some of the spice blend (to taste) over each one
5. Fold two opposite corners of each square over the filling to make a “pouch” and press the edges to seal. Set the pastries on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
6. Brush each pastry with egg wash and sprinkle with some more of the spice blend. Sprinkle the salt evenly over the pastries.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, until pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from baking sheet and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
