Gruyere Puff Pastry Muffins

I made these little lovelies to go with the Pasta Fagioli soup (see post below). I didn't just want to have bread (although it would be great, too) and I had puff pastry. So, I used Allrecipes and their Ingredient search tool. I put in puff pastry, and I found this recipe.

Gruyere Puff Pastry Muffins
1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp. flour
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1 pinch nutmeg
2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese (you could also use Swiss)

*I halved this, I only had one sheet of puff pastry left

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Roll out the puff pastry to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 3 inch squares. Press the squares into 12 cup muffin tin
Make filling. Mix egg, milk, flour, pepper and nutmeg. Stir in cheese.
Fill cups evenly with filling.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
I liked these very much as did the fam. I wanted more filling in it, though. They totally deflated after that picture above, and it didn't seem like their was enough filling. I made the kids grilled cheese sandwiches to go with the soup, so they would keep their paws off our puff pastries. Of course, they wanted to try one, and they liked them, too.

Yum, yum, and more yum! I cannot wait for my next grocery trip to get the ingredients for this one! Bread and cheese--how can you go wrong?

Those look yummy! I wonder if you could make them "deserty" (is that a word??) with some kind of sweet filling???

I'm sure you could. Apple pie filling, or my favorite- a cream cheese filling. Puff pastry is great for savory or sweet.
