Breakfast to go gets a European update with dijon mustard and Swiss cheese.  Wonton wrappers provide the edible cup that gives this breakfast its charming character and convenience.  I liked making these during a busy week and took them to work with me.  They warm up well in the microwave and if you are extra hungry you can grab extra servings, simple.

I was inspired by an article written in Saveur about a nice visit with Dorie Greenspan.  She made what appeared to be a beautiful and delicious egg tart from scratch.  Her version has leeks and carrots and a handmade crust.  I had most of the ingredients but not the carrots and leeks.  I did have wonton wrappers, some vegetables and the two mustards she mentions.  I was curious if I could partially recreate her recipe and if it would be good.  You will have to be the judge, I am too partial and I really LOVE eggs.

I first made this by mixing the ingredients and pouring into a ramekin.  I baked it at 350 until the eggs were set.  It turned out pretty good but I could see how this would be better in pastry.  The tanginess of the mustard really stands out.  I have been craving dijon ever since I made this, fair warning.

Mustard and cream play together in an inventive egg dish.

Next I tried this in wonton wrappers.  This version I really prefer.  The egg to pastry ratio was great and it has the added convenience of easy portability.

You can really get creative with this and have a ton of fun.   Leave a comment and share your experience with this recipe.  I would love to hear if you made other variations.  Enjoy!

Love this idea! It’s hard to have a variety for breakfast but I love that these are made as individual servings. And you’re right that they can be made with a variety of ingredients. I think next time I’m going to use the mustard, Parmesan, ham, and frozen peas!!

I like to play with my food. Wonton wrappers are a great way to do that. It's like a blank canvas for individual bites.
