These make a great breakfast treat. If you want to speed things up, then it’s a great idea to prepare the pastry shells ahead of time.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon butter, for greasing
2 sheets store-bought puff pastry
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 bacon ‘eyes’, cut into small cubes, (the round part of the bacon rasher is called the ‘eye’)
1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 pinch salt
2 pinches black pepper
3 chives

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
sharp knife and chopping board
ladle
fork
measuring spoons
muffin tray
scissors
food processor
measuring cups
frying pan
6 x 10 cm squares baking paper
ceramic pie weights or dried beans
mixing bowls

Method

  1. Ask a grown-up to help you preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease 6 holes of the muffin tray with the butter.
  2. Lay out the sheets of puff pastry on your work surface. Use a small bowl to cut out 6 pastry circles that will fit inside the muffin tray.
  3. Line the muffin holes with a pastry circle, pushing it in carefully but neatly. Prick the pastry a few times with a fork. Place a square of baking paper in each muffin hole and fill it with pie weights.
  4. Ask a grown-up to help you put the muffin tray on the bottom shelf of the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Take the tray out of the oven and carefully lift out the baking paper and pie weights. The pastry shells can be made to this stage ahead of time.
  5. Measure the oil into a frying pan and ask a grown-up to help you fry the bacon over a low–medium heat. Tip the cooked bacon into a mixing bowl.
  6. Ask a grown-up to help you put the onion into a food processor and blitz it to a paste. Once the grown-up has removed the blade from the processor, tip the paste into the mixing bowl with the bacon.
  7. Combine the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in another mixing bowl and beat together well. Pour the mixture into the mixing bowl with the bacon and onion. Use scissors to snip in the chives and stir them in well.
  8. Use the ladle to divide the mixture evenly between the 6 pastry cases in the muffin tin. Ask a grown-up to help you put the tray in the oven and bake the pies for 20 minutes.
  9. Once a grown-up has taken the tray out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes then carefully lift the pies out of the muffin holes and serve immediately.
