Harry Potter Breakfast Pasty Ingredients:

  • Puff Pastry– a pastry made from a process of layering thin sheets of dough with butter. The result is light and flaky, very similar to a croissant. Puff pastry can be found in the freezer section of most grocery stores.
  • Butter– use a nice salted butter.
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms– a small brown mushroom also known as a cremini mushroom.
  • Leek– leeks are a large bulbous vegetable of the onion variety, with thick leafy green tops and white fleshy bottoms. Think of a giant spring onion.
  • Minced Garlic– always.
  • Eggs
  • Dijon Mustard– dijon mustard adds just a touch of spice and a vinegar based acidity to balance everything out.
  • Grated White Cheddar– white cheddar is a firm cheese that is salty and sharp.
  • Cream– whole milk, half & half, or heavy cream all work.
  • Salt and Pepper

Serve Pasty With:

  • Fresh Fruits– such as watermelon, grapes, or cantaloupe.
  • Fried Breakfast Potatoes
  • A side of bacon or sausage links.

Substitutions & Variations:

  • If you are unable to find leeks, you may substitute them with one large sliced shallot or half of a thinly sliced white or yellow onion.
  • Try different cheeses! Instead of white cheddar cheese, you can try an extra sharp cheddar, a smokey gouda, or colby jack cheese.
  • If you are a meat eater- these leaky cauldron breakfast pasties are great with a bit of crumbled spicy sausage in the filling!

How to Make Harry Potter Breakfast Pasty:

  • Make Egg, Mushroom, and Leek Filling: in a medium mixing bowl whisk together eggs, heavy cream, dijon mustard, minced garlic, grated white cheddar cheese, a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Set aside. Melt salted butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Once melted, add finely chopped mushrooms and thinly sliced leeks. Stir and saute vegetable mixture for 5-7 minutes until tender. Pour in egg mixture, stir constantly until egg mixture is set and cooked through- about 2-4 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
  • Construct: preheat oven to 375F. Roll out thawed puff pastry. Using either hands or rolling pin, gently stretch the dough so that each sheet is about 12″X12″. Cut out 4 6″ circles of dough. Scoop 1/4 of egg mixture into the center of one dough circle, leaving about 1.5 inch around the edge. Fold the edges of pastry over the egg mixture , around in a circle like you would a boa bun, and pinch opening closed. Place pasty seam side down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat this process with remaining 3 dough circles.
  • Egg Wash & Bake: in a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg and a splash of cream. Brush tops of pasties with egg wash mixture, and pinch of salt. Bake 20-25 minutes until breakfast pasties are golden brown and flaky.

Tips & Recipe Notes:

  • To make filling pasties easier and more uniform, you can use a round soy sauce dish. Place circle of puff pastry in the bottom of bowl, so that the edges are lifted, and fill with 1/4th of egg mixture. This will help give pasties a nice round shape.
  • Sometimes leeks will have dirt in between the layers. To wash, place sliced leeks in a colander and rinse under cool water.
