DudeFood Tuesday: Superfast breakfast pastries
Last week it was made very clear again that there will always be a communications gap between men and women. It is as the famous book about this subject already states: ‘Men like to eat a Mars and Women shave with Venus’ or something like that.
Also for this dude and his Misses there was a big ‘misunderstanding of the sexes’ going on last weekend. Let me explain what happened:
It was Friday evening and the Misses told me: “I would like to have breakfast in bed, tomorrow.”
So, the courteous and obedient Dude that I am, I immediately started to arrange everything to make the wish of the Misses come true.
But when I was done, still panting and sweating from the hard labour the Misses didn’t appreciate my work at all.
No, in fact she was not amused and very angry when she found out that I moved her bed to the kitchen.
Yep, if you want to have breakfast in bed, you’ll have to sleep in the kitchen, for sure.
I suppose that somewhere the ‘Mars and Venus’ thing kicked in, but I still don’t know what I did wrong.
To sooth the raging beast a little I moved the Misses’ sleeping furniture back to the sleeping room again.
And to still have a bit of a nice weekend I worked a little magic with some ingredients and the oven for a posh and fancy looking breakfast.
Here you have a recipe for superfast breakfast pastries to impress even the most scorned Misses with.
- 5 sheets of puff pastry
- 5 slices of ham
- 5 eggs
- 2 tbsp green peas
- 1 onion finely sliced
- parsley finely chopped
- optional: feta cheese mushrooms, cherry tomatoes
Preheat oven to 180 Celsius
Let puff pastry defrost and put one sheet in a muffintin and form into a little cup. Leave the upper edge standing out of the muffintin. Repeat this with all the pastry sheets.
Briefly glaze the onion until soft. In the meantime put a slice of ham in each pastrycup. Next put in the peas and the glazed onion and optionally add some fetacheese, mushrooms or tomatoes. Crack one egg over each filled pastrycup and finish off with some parsley garnish.
Put in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is a golden brown and the egg is cooked
And of course you can make this your own signaturedish by experimenting with the filling.
