Homemade Mini Breakfast Pies will make your kitchen a bright, cheery and delicious place to visit in the morning. This easy breakfast recipe is great to whip up when family or friends stay over -- quick holiday breakfast, anyone? It's like all your breakfast foods made to eat in the same bite. Flaky phyllo dough provides the base for your eggs, cheese, bacon and tomatoes to sit on while they bake.These individual portions will make it easy to divvy out plates in the morning, and each portion is just hearty and filling enough for one person to make it through till lunch.


  • 1 package frozen puff pastry or phyllo dough
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  • 4 slices thick-cut Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cherry tomatoes for garnish, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Cut puff pastry sheet into 4 equal portions.  Score a square shape into each portion and pierce the center section with a fork.

    *Scoring means to pierce the dough but not cut through entirely.

  3. Bake until lightly golden brown.

  4. Remove from the oven and press down the center of each puff pastry "dish" so that it collapses.

  5. Place a slice of cheese in each bowl and add bacon slices around the edges of your puff pastry "dish."

  6. Crack an egg in each “dish” and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  7. Bake in the oven until egg whites are set.  About 10 minutes.  Yolks will be soft.

Thanks to ashleroo below for the hint about using puff pastry rather than the phyllo dough. I think the phyllo would be far trickier and fragile to work with than the puff pastry, at least based on my experience. I'd like to try this with some breakfast sausage links or patties in place of the bacon and see how those turn out. This is definitely something I'm going to experiment with!

Well, this is just too cute for words and so effortless it would be perfect for brunch with friends or family. I've never used phyllo dough before but I love how flaky and light it is...almost like a mini pizza. You know, if you were to put the ingredients onto the phyllo squares, cover with another then seal, you'll literally have mini breakfast pies or even fruit if you like and how about making some extra and freezing for another day you're in a hurry.

A lovely, novel way of presenting a breakfast or brunch treat to friends or family. I made them last week for a fairly early morning meeting held in our home and everyone loved them! They take a little bit of effort to make but at the end you have a yummy snack that is satisfying without being over filling.

These pies are a great idea for breakfast-on-the-go, like on those mornings when you just can't find the time to sit and eat. It's like having bacon and eggs sandwiches, except that the filling won't fall out as easily. I've had similar stewed chicken pies from a snack shop. I think the filling had some potatoes and vegetables in addition to chicken. Quite tasty!

If you love breakfast foods, you will love these little pies. If you serve the at brunch, everyone with think that you are Martha Stewart! Honestly, they are that cute. The recipe gives you the option of working with phyllo or puff pastry. Personally, I prefer puff pastry because it is a bit more resilient and easier to work with. It also gives your tarts a bit more substance, it my opinion. If you do choose to work with phyllo, and you are unfamiliar, you need to work quickly and delicately. I would also suggest keeping your dough under a damp towel which working with it, because it dries out so quickly and will become impossible to work with.

These look delicious and they are the perfect portion size for the morning. Definitely will be trying these!
