How to Make Easy Cheesy Breakfast Mini-Puffs
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- NOTE: To make a light meal with this recipe, serve with a green salad or fruit salad and perhaps a light vegetable soup.
