  • 3 each Puff Pastry Shells
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk whole or 2%
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil or use olive oil
  • honey for drizzling optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Separate puff pastry shells and arrange on ungreased baking sheet. If desired, line with parchment paper. Bake according to instructions on back of package. I reduced oven temp to 400 (package suggests 425 degrees) for even baking in my oven. Adjust your oven temp if necessary.
  • While pastry shells are baking, prepare scrambled eggs and cheese.
  • In medium sized bowl, thoroughly combine 3 eggs, shredded cheddar cheese, milk (whole or 2%), salt and black pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Place 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil (or olive oil) in a medium sized skillet. Warm over "low" heat until hot.
  • Pour egg mixture into hot greased skillet. Increase heat to medium. Use a rubber spatula to turn eggs and cheese for 2-3 minutes. "Scramble" by breaking into small pieces with spatula. Cook 2 minutes longer if hard scrambled eggs are preferred. Remove from heat. Set aside.
  • Remove baked puff pastry shells from oven. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Carefully remove tops which will come out easily.
  • Fill each shell with scrambled cheese and eggs. Serve immediately.
