Homemade Toaster Scrambles

My daughter is hooked on these things:
Not the healthiest thing on the planet.  So I decided to see if I could make a homemade version, so I could at least know what was in the food I'm serving my girl.  I did cheat and bought puff pastry dough to work with.  Dough is not my strong point, so I usually chicken out on making my own and buy frozen.  One of these days I'm going to get brave and make my own - in fact, maybe I'll spend a whole day perfecting the craft so I don't have to buy the frozen stuff anymore - but until then, we'll go with this. 

This is what I started with:


4 eggs - to be scrambled
about 1/4 cup red onion finely chopped
1 large clove of garlic minced
about 1 cup of ham finely chopped
about 1 cup of shredded cheese - I used sharp cheddar and garlic jack from Loleta Cheese Factory.
2 sheets of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry.

I fried up the onions and garlic in about half tablespoon of butter then added the ham.  I set the oven to preheat at 375 degrees.
 I then rolled out the puff pastry until it was about 1/3 it's original thickness, then sliced it into 6 separate pieces with a pizza cutter.
 I added the 4 eggs to the ham and onion mixture.  Added a sprinkle of kosher salt and a few grinds of pepper.
 I placed a heaping spoonful of the cooked mixture on each sheet and topped it with the shredded cheese.
 I folded the sheets over and sealed them using a fork along the edges.
 I baked them for 20 minutes, let them fully cool then put them in the freezer on a cookie sheet for about 8 hours.  I then put them in an airtight bag and back in the freezer and they're ready to go when Cordelia is ready for her breakfast toaster scramble.  They won't fit in a toaster, but it won't take long to toast them back up in the broiler - or if you have a toaster oven. 

I did eat one for a taste test, and I have to say it was pretty tasty.  It didn't taste like the boxed ones from Pilsbury, but it was the same concept, and in my opinion, much better.  It tasted homemade.  I'll have to come back and let you know what my daughter's critique is.  Heaven knows, she will be honest.  So we shall see.

Hi I'm susie from drumltd.com and we've got quite the riveting collection of [url=http://drumltd.com]drums[/url]. The exact collecting of drum paraphernalia components depends on factors like musical style, in the flesh option, pecuniary resources, and transportation options of the drummer. Cymbal, hi-hat, and tom-tom stands (if it comes with), as incredibly as bass drum pedals and drum thrones are generally speaking standard in most drum kits. Most agglomeration produced drum kits are sold in bromide of two five-piece configurations (referring to the swarm of drums alone), which typically take in a bass drum, a snare drum, two toms, and individual floor tom. The pattern sizes (every now called ‘in ruins’ sizes) are 22” (md size diameter) bass drum, 14” ensnare drum, 12” and 13” mounted toms, and a 16” floor tom. The other conventional configuration is called "Fusion", a reference to jazz fusion music, which most often includes a 20” (or off 22") bass drum, a 14” net drum, and 10”, 12” mounted toms, and a 14” floor tom.
