Make Ahead Breakfast/Brunch

I love make-ahead meals for company. Since I'll have a housefull next week, I thought I'd share this one. I "tried it out" on Brad last Sunday, and it was a keeper!

Puff Pastry Omelet (Serves 8-10)

Thaw a box of puff pastry. Roll out on floured surface and cut as shown in photo.
Scramble a dozen eggs with whatever you like: cheese, onion, bacon, sausage, prosciutto, etc. Spread half of cooked eggs down the center of each puff pastry sheet, and braid strips together. (Freeze now...or continue and eat) Bake at 350 for 25 min.
Remove from oven and brush with an egg wash (one beaten egg). Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and continue baking for 10 min. One package of puff pastry makes two.

This looks so scrumptious! I'll have to try this soon. Hope you have a great Christmas Palma!

Ooh - I'm having a Lehigh Girl brunch next weekend - this could be good but I'm trying to remember how the "braiding" goes, any pointers you can give?

This looks great Palma! Giess what I am making for breakfast this weekend?

I bet that you could do neat individual ones as well. Hmmm . . .

Palma:

Kim, it's not really "braiding". You just overlap the strips, then tuck them in underneath the opposite side. More like "criss-cross". You can't mess up!

This looks great-I'm making it! Thanks.

Wow, does that look good, Palma. Do you make your own monkey bread too? I haven't had that in years!

Palma, I'm going to make this for a NY brunch. When you start braiding, do you start at the top of the photo or the bottom? Does it matter? (thanks, T)
