Mushrooms on Toast pastries covered in melted cheese

This pastry is inspired by the British classic of mushrooms on toast.  I love mushrooms on toast especially with a poached egg on top.  However, like most of the best breakfast recipes around, I don’t like all that work.  Especially on a busy morning weekday when trying to rush out the door.  So, in an effort to streamline breakfast and make sure everyone was adequately fed, I concocted this delicious little parcel.

This portable pastry of buttery puff pastry wrapped around bacon, scallions, shallots and mushrooms then topped with melted cheese is deliciously simple and easy to make. Not to mention, they are also perfect for brunch or anything other time when you want to impress. That is..if you are willing to share and not eat them all yourself which, let’s be honest, is quite tempting.

These ‘mushrooms on toast’ pastries are great to make ahead of time for a weekday breakfast on the go or even an impressive addition to brunch.
