These Baked Egg & Goat Cheese Puff Pastries may look fancy, but they are super easy to create & are full of creamy flavors!
Cold fall nights & winter days are upon us. As I sit huddled up by my computer in lots of layers & an extra big scarf I can’t help but wish I could be snuggled up next to a roaring fire, surrounded by fluffy blankets, a warm drink, & these Baked Egg Goat Cheese Puff Pastries.
Doesn’t a lazy Sunday brunching by a crackling fire sound absolutely perfect?
Especially when it looks this good & is this easy to make!
With the sun slipping behind the horizon a little faster each day all I want to do is cozy up inside for a few extra ZZZ’s. Well, that & bake.
One of my nieces asked me last weekend what are my favorite things to do. I quickly replied, “Eat, read, & sleep!” She made a funny look & Roger laughed (because it is so true!). She then went on to tell me her 6 favorite things. Yes she has exactly six & I’m guessing that is because she just turned 6.
And while she changed her mind about having “eat cotton candy” in her top 6, I will never change my top 3.
Although I love to eat, my eating habits sometimes take a dive during the colder months & as I grow older I am trying to grow wiser about what I choose to consume on a daily basis. And since these winter months are filled with more darkness than sunshine, I thought I would share a new recipe with you that can be enjoyed for breakfast or brunch & is bright & yellow like the sun!
This Baked Egg Goat Cheese Puff Pastry may sound or look fancy for breakfast or a last minute brunch with out of town guests, but it is simply delicious & easy to create. Not only that but the yokes have the added benefit of being filled with Vitamin D which is extra important this time of year. And to help increase my Vitamin D intake during the holiday season & through the cold winter months I’ve added Nature Made® Vitamin D to my daily regimen.
Nature Made® offers several levels of Vitamin D at Walmart, including Nature Made® Vitamin D3 2000IU Tablet and Nature Made® Vitamin D3 5000IU Softgel. The 5000IU high dose product is intended for those deficient in Vitamin D as determined and recommended by their physician.
So you can find just the right Vitamin D addition you want this season!
I picked up a bottle of Nature Made® Vitamin D from the Vitamins & Supplements aisle in Walmart & found everything else I needed to create these Baked Egg Goat Cheese Puff Pastries during my grocery trip. I also may or may not have picked up some cozy slippers so I can make my dream come true of eating these again by a cozy fire.
And while it’s not quite cold enough for a fire yet in Tennessee (although Roger does keep the inside of our house like an ice box) I decided to invite my sister to join me for a little sister brunch & day date.
After working 2 days in a row at the hospital I knew she would enjoy a savory treat, especially one that is high in Vitamin D!
And since Vitamin D supports bone, teeth, muscle, and immune health† I’m happy to be adding it to my daily diet. If you are striving to live a healthier lifestyle this holiday season, you can start by taking your daily Vitamin D vitamins with Nature Made®! Click here to learn more.
