Weekend (Easter) Breakfast Menu

I posted a while back about this great Puffed Oven Pancake (German Pancake).  we have made it many many times since and watching it get huge and puff up on the sides never gets old.  Check out the recipe here.

I have been searching for another idea for breakfast to mix it up a bit.  I just stumbled upon a delicious looking recipe for a Sunny-Side Up Herbed Tart from Taste of Home.  This recipes looks great and easy switch out ingredients for those picky eater.
Find it here.
4 slices pancetta or 4 bacon strips
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons chopped shallot
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 teaspoon sherry, optional
1/4 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
5 eggs
1 teaspoon water
1 tablespoon minced chives
Dash each salt and pepper

In a large skillet, cook pancetta over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. In a small skillet, saute mushrooms and shallot in oil until tender. Add tarragon and sherry if desired; cook 1 minute longer.

Remove from the heat; stir in the cheeses, sour cream, salt and pepper. Set aside.
On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Roll into a 10-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Transfer to a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Prick with a fork.

Spread mushroom mixture over pastry to within 1 in. of edges. Top with pancetta (place pancetta near the edges of the mushroom mixture). Score edges of pastry with a fork. Beat 1 egg and water; brush over pastry edges. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

Carefully crack remaining eggs off-center into each corner. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with chives, salt and pepper. Cut into four pieces. Serve warm. Yield: 4 servings.

This will make a great Easter Breakfast or Brunch dish.  I know that I will be removing the mushrooms and likely the Sherry! 

Have a great Easter Weekend!!
