Stuffed Breakfast Pastry Shells

Before you laugh, you need to know – my dad named this recipe “Breakfast Surprise”!

Also, yes – I made you breakfast!


My Other Half is the true breakfast master. Well actually, his dad is, but he learned from the best. On the weekends, when we actually make a real breakfast (not a smoothie or bowl of cereal or toast like during the work week), he almost always does it.

I’m totally a spoiled brat, by the way, because My Other Half gets up much earlier than me on weekends and I often (seriously – often) get breakfast in bed. I couple weeks ago I got this AMAZING Mexican scramble with chipotle crema and ground beef… OMG it was the best. He really is the breakfast king.

But on this particular weekend, My Other Half was out of town coaching his basketball team, and my Daddy was here for the weekend! So I decided to channel my inner Hanrahan and whip up something to fill our bellies before heading out to the Fairmont Chateau Montebello in Quebec.

This was AMAZING. When Daddy asked what it was, I kinda shrugged because I didn’t really know what to call it. So he dubbed it “Julia’s Breakfast Surprise”. The best.
