1

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Brush a square pastry lightly with water then place another square on top of it. Cut off any uneven edges. Repeat with the remaining squares.

Place the square pairs about 1-inch apart on a baking sheet, and brush the top of each with the egg wash.

In a large pan, combine olive oil, peppers, salt and pepper. Cook for 8 Minutes or until the peppers have softened.

Cut a rectangle in the middle of each square puff pastry and push it down. Fill the inside of the puff with a thin layer of bacon, cheddar cheese, and peppers. Use a small spoon or utensil to push the layers down. Carefully crack an egg on top.
