Bacon and Egg Breakfast Tarts

Perfect selection for a brunch, but also convenient enough for serving on a weekday. Instead of Canadian bacon, try using 1/2 cup diced cooked ham or 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon. Place 2 tablespoons of meat into each pastry cup.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Prepare pastry for a one crust pie as directed on package. Divide pastry into 4 equal parts. Roll each part into a 6 inch circle on a well floured, cloth covered board with a floured, cloth covered rolling pin. Fit pastry over backs of large muffin cups (3 x 1 1/2 inch), or 6 ounce custard cups; make pleats so pastry will fit closely. If using individual pie pans or tart pans, cut circles 1 inch larger than inverted pans, and fit into pans. Prick surface. Place tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake until light brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes, and carefully remove from cups. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Place 2 bacon slices in the bottom of each pastry cup. Sprinkle cheese over the meat, making slight well in centers. Break 1 egg into each. Add 1 tablespoon milk into each tart. Sprinkle with nutmeg and pepper. Place tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet
  5. Bake until eggs are soft cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Made this recipe in tartlets, so beat the eggs like you would for scrambled in with the milk,cheese,bacon, salt and pepper and then poured a bit into each tartlet. Very good. Cooked crusts 8 minutes, then with filling 10 min.

Made these using frozen ready-made tarts and mixed everything in a bowl and then filled the tarts. I used frozen diced onions (didn't bother to cook ahead of time). I made two different kinds: one with diced Canadian bacon and the other with packaged real bacon bits. I prefered the latter. These reheat wonderfully in the microwave. Perfect for a brunch.

Wow! This recipe made me a hero with my inlaws! I made variations on the fillings (some people don't eat bacon, etc.) so that everyone could have what they liked best. Kids loved having "their own" just like the grown-ups (who helped themselves to 2-3 each!)After reading another review of the recipe, I made my version in the extra large muffin tins (usually used for commercial use) and kept my oven just a tad lower because they were cooking quite quickly. I WILL make this again and again!
