Egg Puffs with Pastry Sheets

Egg puffs with pastry sheets

Egg puffs with pastry sheets or simply egg puffs taste delicious. It is a popular snack item in local bakeries back home. They are always a crowd-pleaser and a perfect appetizer to serve at parties and get-togethers. The pastry sheets are easily available in the frozen section aisle of groceries. I usually use the frozen pepperidge farm pastry sheets. Using readymade frozen pastry sheets, it is a breeze to make egg puffs. All you need to make is the filling for the pastry puffs. There are some folks who also make the pastry dough from scratch but that can be quite some effort. The crispy flakiness of the pastry sheet combined with spiced egg makes a great combination. This is very similar to the recipe of vegetable puffs pastry that I posted earlier and is a good option for vegetarians.

Egg puffs with pastry sheets – How to make the Filling?

For making the filling, boil eggs until well done. De-shell and cut into halves. Make a spiced gravy and add the boiled eggs into it. Once they are mixed well, take off heat and cool. Thaw the sheets and cut them into squares. Spoon the gravy and eggs onto each, brush with egg wash and close the ends of the pastry sheets into desired shapes. Bake them in an oven for 20 -25 minutes. Serve with ketchup on the side.

Egg Puffs Steps in Preparation

Tips to make the Egg Puffs

Bring the pastry sheets to room temperature before you make the egg gravy so it can be easily assembled. Do not overcook the eggs as it also gets cooked in the baking process as well. Cool the egg mixture to room temperature. Brush the pastry sheet with egg wash before spooning the mixture so it can be easily shaped while closing the ends. Coat the egg wash on the top of the pastry sheet as well. Use tomato ketchup instead of tomatoes to get the tangy taste.
