Egg, Bacon, and Pecorino Danish
Makes 6
  • Danish Dough
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup pecorino cheese
  • 1 teaspoon (3 grams) kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon (2 grams) ground black pepper
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 16x12-inch rectangle. Using a pizza wheel or a sharp knife, cut dough into 12 (4-inch) squares. Using a 2½-inch round cutter, cut circles out of half of squares. Place 6 whole squares on prepared pan, and brush with beaten egg. Place squares with cutouts on top. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, and let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  4. Top squares with crumbled bacon, and brush with beaten egg. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and crack one egg into center of each Danish. Sprinkle with pecorino, salt, and pepper. Return to oven, and bake until eggs are set and pastry is puffed and golden, 10 to 15 minutes more.

  1. I have had my eye on this recipe ever since I got the “bake from Scratch” cookbook. I am going to try it as written first but was also wondering if it would work with croissant dough as well.

  2. know you might be intimidated by homemade pastries, but believe me when I tell you that they are SO doable and you will be absolutely thrilled when you get to sink your teeth into the final product. I’m going to walk you through the process below and there are very detailed directions in the recipe.
