If you rang in the New Year with bottles of champagne and wine, this morning might be considerably rough for you.
Fortunately, a delicious breakfast is an easy solution to re-start the New Year.
My suggestion is to whip up an easy pastry egg bake.
Simple, salty, buttery, and delicious. With a cup of black coffee, it's an easy wake-up.
I use the pre-made frozen puff pastry, because I'm way too hungry in the mornings to spend the time making the stuff from scratch. But, if you're a domestic brunch Queen, feel free to make your own pastry for this recipe.
If you're feeling lazy like me, grab these ingredients:
1 package frozen puff pastry (I use Pepperidge Farm)
1 handful of your favorite shredded cheese (I use provolone)
2 strips bacon
1 teaspoon chopped chives
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Start out by chunking off some of the pastry and rolling it out. Shape into a small square. Pinch the dough on its edges, raising them up and making an indented center (that way the egg won't roll off the pastry).
Cook your pastry for 8-10 minutes, pricking it with a toothpick to deflate.
While your pastry is cooking, toss your strips of bacon into the microwave for 1-2 minutes until crispy.
Pull your pastry out and sprinkle your cheese across it. Crack your egg in the center. Top with chopped chives and bacon.
Cook the pastry for another 5-10 minutes, or until egg has desired gooeyness.
As for how you eat it, that's all up to you. Pick it up, use a fork and knife, whatever you feel! Just celebrate 2013 with deliciousness.
