Breakfast worth waking up on the weekend after holidays! Flaky puff pastry topped with cranberry sauce, stuffing, turkey and sunny-side-up eggs.
Holidays are here…already! Oh man, where did they come from? Thanksgiving is this Thursday already and we’re still finishing up leftover Halloween candy. Before I know it, Christmas will be here and I haven’t gotten any of my shopping done yet. But there is absolutely no way that I would crawl out of my warm and cozy home on a Crazy…, I mean Black Friday. Some deals out there might sound good but it’s just not worth it. People at the mall, and especially the Toys R Us store, get quite vicious when they get a chance to save a some money of the gifts.
I have my own family tradition for Black Friday that I started many, many years ago. We polish off the Thanksgiving leftovers, bake and decorate for Christmas. Little man already has “decorating day” marked on the calendar and his wait for Christmas is almost over. He has been trying so hard to skip Thanksgiving but I hope it will be worth it for him. My sister also comes over for the weekend after Thanksgiving and she used to be as excited about decorating and baking as the little man is but “she is grown up now.” Yea, she is a teenager now and you know they think they are all grown up. Plus, she turned into such a Grinch. She is not into any holidays lately, moody and Grinchy. “Please, let this teenage phase be over quick!”
So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she will happily participate in all the merriment but I probably shouldn’t hold my breath. Although, I know she will participate in some baking but I the only leftovers she will be eating is her birthday cheesecake.
Even though the kids might turn up their picky noses an this delicious Leftovers Tart, I know hubs and I will gobble it up. After all, we liked it the first time I made it. It’s super easy to make, in case you don’t feel like moving much after Thanksgiving, and ready in under 30 minutes.
Thanksgiving Leftovers Tart (Turkey, Stuffing, Cranberry and Egg Tart)
- 1 sheet of puff pastry
- 1/4 cup cranberry sauce
- 1 1/2 cup stuffing
- 1/2 cup minced turkey cooked
- 4 eggs
- Defrost puff pastry and lay it flat on a greased baking sheet. Preheat oven to 400.
- Spread cranberry sauce evenly over the pastry, just leave about 1/2 inch boarder uncovered.
- Spread stuffing and turkey evenly over the cranberry sauce.
- Carefully break the eggs into each corner of the pastry. (Imagine cutting the tart into 4 even squares, so you will want to place the egg on each "square.") I also recommend very carefully breaking the white, not the yolk, but the white.
- Place baking sheet into the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes, depending on how done you want your egg. I don't recommend baking longer than 20 minutes or tart will be dry and you might burn the pastry edges.
