Print Recipe


  • 12 5-½ ” Puff Pastry Squares partially defrosted
  • 1-½ Avocado diced
  • 12 Eggs
  • 3 ounces sliced Lox smoked salmon
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 2 ounces Feta Cheese
  • 3 stems Fresh Dill


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, spray alternating muffin cups with baking spray (including the top)
  • 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.
  • Divide up the Avocado pieces into the pastry baskets. It’s ⅛ of an avocado per muffin cup.
  • Pour one raw Egg into each basket.
  • Top each basket with a strip of Lox laid across the surface of the egg.
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Upscale egg baskets are done baking when the egg is firm and the pastry is golden.
  • While baking, mix the dressing. Combine the Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Kosher Salt, and Black Pepper in a bowl and whisk until emulsified.
  • Gently remove the finished Egg Baskets from the tin. Top with a drizzle of Lemon Dressing, a sprinkle of Feta Cheese and a small piece of Fresh Dill.
