    Upscale Egg Baskets are Eggs, Avocado, and Lox expertly packed inside a delicious pastry shell, then topped with a lemon dressing, feta cheese and a bit of dill for a full flavored breakfast in a cute little single serving.  

    It all started with a television ad.  While watching the Food Network, my husband and I saw an ad for the Pillsbury Bake Off.  He says, “you have to enter this.” And I agreed. So I got onto the internet and started researching the eligible products.  Most are kosher, but they have to be hechshered on the package. I chose the product I would most want to work with and sketched out my idea for a dish.  My next mission was to acquire the kosher pastry ingredient. I was unable to do so.  I couldn’t find a package that was marked with the hechsher in my area. But I still had this great concept, so what to do?

    I made it anyway!  I put it together using kosher ingredients and it was as delicious as I had hoped.  It’s really too bad that I couldn’t enter the competition, but I feel like a winner if you all enjoy this dish as much as I do!  

    Cook and comment.  I’d love to see your pictures, answer your questions and hear your experiences.  If you like my content, please subscribe and follow us on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, spray alternating muffin cups with baking spray (including the top)

    2
    Done

    Puff Pastry squares should be defrosted enough to be pliable, but not stretchy. Gently press 1 pastry square into each prepared muffin cup, making a basket.

    3
    Done

    Divide up the Avocado pieces into the pastry baskets. It’s ⅛ of an avocado per muffin cup.

    4
    Done

    Pour one raw Egg into each basket.

    5
    Done

    Top each basket with a strip of Lox laid across the surface of the egg.

    6
    Done

    Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Upscale egg baskets are done baking when the egg is firm and the pastry is golden.

    7
    Done

    While baking, mix the dressing. Combine the Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Kosher Salt, and Black Pepper in a bowl and whisk until emulsified.

    8
