These puffs are great warm or at room temperature. They are an awesome breakfast-on-the-run or after-school snack for busy families, too. Freeze puffs on baking sheet until firm and store in zip-top freezer bags. Microwave for 20-40 seconds [depending on your microwave oven] and enjoy!

How to Make Easy Cheesy Breakfast Mini-Puffs


  1. Bake, cool and remove the "top" of the shells according to the package directions. Turn the broiler on. Place large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cut bacon slices into 1/2" dice and place in preheated skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 8-12 minutes, or just until bacon is crisp. Transfer bacon to paper-towel-lined plate and dispose of bacon fat.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons butter to skillet and let melt for 1 minute. Break eggs into medium mixing bowl and add half & half, Worcestershire sauce and mustard; whisk to break yolks. Add salt and pepper to taste and whisk sliced green onions into eggs. Pour into skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 4 to 7 minutes, or just until eggs reach desired state of doneness.
  3. Remove eggs from heat and gently fold in 1 cup of cheese, cooked bacon and tomato. Divide egg mixture between cooked pastry shells. Sprinkle remaining cheese on filled pastry shells. Place under preheated broiler for approximately 1-2 minutes, or just until cheese melts and is barely golden brown.
  4. NOTE: To make a light meal with this recipe, serve with a green salad or fruit salad and perhaps a light vegetable soup.

    24 appetizer servings or 6-8 meal servings (3-4 puffs per serving).
