24 Peppridge Farm Puff Pastry Shells

White Sauce:

4 Tablespoons butter

4 Tablespoons flour

2 cups milk

Melt butter over low heat. Add flour and stir until well blended (appox. 4 minutes). Slowly add milk and continually stir until slightly set.

12 Hard Boiled Eggs, chopped

Salt and Pepper

Bacon, cooked and crumbled

Tarragon for garnish

Paprika for garnish

Directions: Prepare the pastry shells as directed on the package. Pre-boil the eggs the night before if desired. While pastry shells are baking, prepare the white sauce and keep warm on the stove.  Wash the fresh tarragon (dried can be used if necessary), dry and set aside.  When the pastry shells are puffed and slightly brown, remove from oven.  Place on plates and remove scored top from shells. Cover chopped eggs with plastic wrap and heat until warm in the microwave (about 1-2 minutes).  Spoon chopped eggs over and into pastry shells.  Liberally drizzle white sauce over puff pastry shells.  Sprinkle chopped bacon, a dash of paprika, salt, pepper and tarragon over the shells.  Push shell top upright and into lower shell to make a clamshell effect. Garnish the plate with colorful fruit such as apple and orange slices, small grape bunches, etc. and serve.
