To make these delicious pies, you’ll need a few tools such as a cooking sheet, parchment paper, rolling pin, and a sharp knife. You’ll also need 24 pieces of crispy bacon, a cup of shredded cheese, a quarter cup of diced onion, two tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of garlic powder, two teaspoons of dried tarragon, and two teaspoons of dried sage.
Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and laying a piece of parchment paper onto the cooking sheet. Cut the bacon into two-inch pieces and arrange them on the parchment paper in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy. Once cooked, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the fat.
Mix together the shredded cheese, diced onion, two tablespoons of olive oil, one tablespoon of garlic powder, two teaspoons of dried tarragon, and two teaspoons of dried sage in a medium bowl. Now, lightly flour a clean surface and roll out the puff pastry into a rectangular shape.
Cut the dough into four pieces, then spoon the cheesy bacon mixture into the center of each piece. Pull up the edges of the dough to form four pastry pockets filled with the cheesy bacon. Use a fork to press the edges to seal the pockets and form them into small pies. Cut slits in the tops to allow steam to escape.
Bake the Savory Cheesy Bacon Pies in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. Allow them to cool slightly before serving. Serve with a fresh salad, and enjoy each crunchy bite!
