|Bacon & Egg Rolls
One of the items I usually keep in my freezer is frozen puff pastry dough. Packets of eight 5" x 5" frozen puff pastry dough squares sell for $2.50 a packet at the ethnic grocery store and I usually pick up a couple of packets when I shop there. I do know how to make puff pastry from scratch, and I suppose I could make a batch and keep in the freezer, but the store bought frozen puff pastry is an affordable convenience.
Today, I took two of the packets of frozen puff pastry, some leftover hard boiled eggs and the last few rashers of bacon from a packet of bacon I had in the fridge and, with daughter's help, made bacon and egg rolls for dinner. We quartered the eggs, cut the rashers of bacon into thirds and cut each square of puff pastry in half. Wrapped each piece of egg in a piece of bacon and encased the bacon-wrapped piece of egg in the pastry; sealed the edges with the tines of a fork, brushed the tops with milk and sprinkled with a bit of ground pepper and baked at 350F until the pastry was puffed and brown.
Daughter and I enjoyed some for our dinner and there's more for tomorrow night's dinner, as well. They'd make a good breakfast or tea time treat, as well.
Do you keep any frozen pastry dough on hand? What do you make with it?
