Pizza crust is filled with eggs, bacon, red bell pepper, cauliflower and Indian spices in this fun take on breakfast.
One of my favorite Indian treats is a stuffed snack called samosa. Almost every time I go to an Indian market for groceries, I end up getting suckered into buying one or two of them because they often have them sitting by the register looking extra delicious and tempting.
My favorite samosa has potato, cauliflower and peas in it, and last time I was eating one, I thought it might be good with egg.
I took this idea one step further with these Indian Breakfast Puffs, adding some bacon and peppers along with the eggs and the traditional cauliflower.
For the breading I used a Pillsbury Whole Grain Pizza Dough that tasted great with the other breakfast ingredients.
To get started, quickly roast off the cauliflower and peppers just to soften them a bit. I did this in the same pan that I cooked the bacon in just to add some extra bacon flavor to the veggies.
Mix the veggies in a bowl with the bacon, some cheese, and lightly scrambled eggs. Mix in a tablespoon of curry powder.
Spread out the pizza dough and roll it slightly thinner. Cut it into 12 triangles.
Fold the long edge onto itself to form a pocket, then stuff some filling in. Fold over the back edge to finally close the puff.
These tasted great with a tamarind chutney, but you could go ahead and use ketchup if you want!
