Puff Pastry Tart for Father’s Day Brunch

Father’s Day is only a few days away.

I’ll admit, I’m not the best at holidays like these, and usually end up planning at the last minute. Gifts and cards I can handle, but in the past my Father’s Day menu usually includes just throwing some kind of meat on the grill, and breakfast I don’t usually do much of anything special.

Ian is an early riser, a  VERY early riser, and typically by the time we all get up, he’s already eaten something.

Not this year. Stella and I have been working on a menu that any father would be sure to love, and it includes this amazing puff pastry breakfast tart with bacon and eggs. It may be cliche, but bacon  really does make everything better, even puff pastry.

I first saw this tart on the cover of  The Fresh Market store circular in South Carolina. I knew I had to try it, and it was so gorgeous it definitely called for a special occasion.

Father’s Day it is.

The kids LOVED our test tarts so much I can see this becoming a regular breakfast item, and dad will feel so special with this incredible meal.

It  may look impressive, but it really is a breeze to put together {but you don’t have to tell dad that}.

Enjoy!
