If you love egg and cheese sandwiches (and who doesn’t?), you’re going to love these breakfast tartlets. While they may look fancy, they are super simple to prepare. All you need is a sheet of frozen puff pastry, some eggs, and a pile of grated cheddar — oh, and some mini skillets!

To make the tartlets, simply cut a (thawed) sheet of frozen puff pastry into four equal squares, place each square in its own cast iron skillet, bake for a bit, then sprinkle on some cheese and crack an egg on top, and return to the oven to finish baking.

Once the pastry is golden-brown and the egg whites are set, pull the tartlets out and finish them with salt, pepper, and fresh basil. As you cut into the tartlets you’ll be met with flaky pastry, slightly runny egg yolk, and gooey melted cheese. They’re essentially savory, open-faced Pop-Tarts.

If you’re making breakfast for your family or hosting friends for brunch, you can’t beat the fun presentation of these tartlets. Serve with avocado slices and hot sauce on the side, and let everyone dress their own skillet breakfasts how they please!
