- 8 slices bacon, cooked
- 4 slices thick-cut Cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper, to taste
- cherry tomatoes for garnish, optional
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

*Scoring means to pierce the dough but not cut through entirely.
Bake until lightly golden brown.
Remove from the oven and press down the center of each puff pastry "dish" so that it collapses.
Place a slice of cheese in each bowl and add bacon slices around the edges of your puff pastry "dish."
Crack an egg in each “dish” and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake in the oven until egg whites are set. About 10 minutes. Yolks will be soft.
