Savory Morning Puff Pastry Delight

Ingredients Overview

  • Puff Pastry: Opt for a pre-made puff pastry sheet for convenience, thawed as per the package’s instructions. If you’re up for a challenge, try your hand at making your own puff pastry from scratch, minus any sweet flavorings for this savory recipe.
  • Ham: Deli-sliced ham is my go-to for this recipe, but feel free to swap it with sausage crumbles or crispy bacon for a different twist.
  • Cheese: Sharp cheddar adds a nice depth of flavor, though any of your favorite cheeses would be great in this recipe.
  • Eggs: Whip up some scrambled eggs to fold into your pastry. For an extra fluffy version, try adding buttermilk and a touch of cornstarch to the eggs.

Preparation Tips

  1. Make-Ahead: You can assemble the puff pastry with all the fillings and refrigerate it overnight. Just be sure to let it sit out for about 15 minutes before baking.
  2. Single Servings: For individual portions, cut the pastry into squares and fill each one before baking. This is perfect for personal servings or a family brunch where everyone can grab their bite!

Savory Morning Puff Pastry Delight



  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Dust a clean surface with flour and roll out the puff pastry into a 14-inch (35.5 cm) square. Cut 1-inch (2.5 cm) wide slits from the outer edge towards the center, leaving a solid strip in the middle for the filling.


  1. Arrange the ham along the center strip of the pastry. Top with shredded cheese and evenly spread the scrambled eggs over the cheese.
  2. Prepare the egg wash by whisking together the egg and water in a small bowl. Use this to brush the edges of the pastry.
  3. Fold the cut pastry strips over the center, alternating from each side, to cover the fillings completely.


  1. Place the assembled pastry on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the top with the remaining egg wash and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown.
