Want to know a secret? We use buttermilk and cornstarch in our eggs. I know, it sounds crazy, but just trust me. Here is the recipe for Country Buttermilk Scrambled Eggs. It is so light and fluffy and adds amazing texture and flavor to this dish. You don’t have to use this recipe for your breakfast pastry, any scrambled egg recipe will work. Feel free to get creative and add your favorite veggies and varieties of cheeses. We like to dress it up western style with some diced onions, mushrooms and peppers. You can also swap out the ham for crumbled sausage or even bacon. This puff pastry breakfast recipe is so versatile!

Tips Tricks and Variations
Can I make this breakfast puff pastry recipe ahead of time?
The breakfast puff pastry can be filled and refrigerated for up to 8 hours before baking. Just wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. Remove it from the refrigerator 15 minutes before baking. Bake as directed above.
Can I make this breakfast puff pastry recipe as a single serving?
Certainly. Cut the puff pastry into 8-12 squares (depending on how large you want them). Evenly distribute the filling across the center of all of the puff pastry squares. Fold up the corners of each puff pastry square so they meet in the middle. Gently pinch together the four corners where they meet in the middle, and slightly flatten the filled pastry so it makes a square, distributing the filling to the corners. Follow the recipe above from here.
Can I make the Puff Pastry from Scratch?
Yes, here is a great recipe for a homemade Puff Pastry. (Just leave out the cinnamon!)
