Easy Breakfast Puff Pastry Recipe with Eggs-Bacon-cheese
Some Mornings are just that – Mornings – Have an early hockey game to attend? Or early dance morning? Here’s a great little recipe for you to try. It will allow you to eat while on the run. This Breakfast Puff Pastry rocket has breakfast written all over it! How can you go wrong with Eggs, Bacon, and Cheese?
Frozen Puff Pastry packages are $3.27 at Walmart as a Regular Price.
Bacon is the one Item that I find can kill any grocery budget if not careful – so I always try and multiple packages when I find them on sale for $2.99.
Shredded Cheese? I always shred my own cheese – its way cheaper than buying shredded cheese. I also will buy bricks of cheese in multiples and freeze them when on sale.
Eggs I usually purchase from Shoppers Drug Mart as it seems they have a special on them every week for $2.25 – $2.99 Or I support my Farmer friends and purchase Free Range eggs for $4.00 for 18.
In my shopping habits, I can make this recipe for $10.75 for 8 breakfast pockets. Or $1.31 each – which is a whole cheaper than stopping at a fast food chain for $4-$5 breakfast sandwich.
Quick Breakfast to make for a Morning Road Trip – breakfast Pocket is the way to go. It might be a bit crumbly because of the puff pastry, but it will be easy to hold with a napkin or two for those mornings you need to be on the run!
