Egg Puffs - Bakery Style


Egg Puffs are baked puff pastry with spicy egg filling.  It  is one of my favorite snack. Back in India, We used to get these puffs in the local bakeries.  After coming here to US, I came to know it is very easy to prepare this at home with the ready-made frozen pastry sheets available here. I prepared this Egg puff one evening for snack, though it was dark, managed to click pictures to post here.

  2. Take each roll and slightly roll it.
  3. Then place the masala/spicy onion filling and then egg on top of it. 
  4. Pull the sides together. Then the other sides together such that the egg is covered with pastry sheets. Then seal the ends together. 
  5. Preheat the oven for 400 F.

Bakery style Egg Puffs
Notes:
  • Adjust the spice as per your taste.
  • Make sure you seal the edges of the pastry sheets tightly, otherwise they will open up while baking. 
  • Optionally you can brush on top of the puffs with egg white, for shiny golden color.
