Do You Roll Out Ready Made Puff Pastry?
Whether you make homemade puff pastry or you use a store bought pre-made puff pastry like the one this recipe calls for you should always roll out your puff pastry. Rolling ensures that your dough will have an even thickness all the way around it.
How Thin Should I Roll Out Puff Pastry?
Ready made puff pastry is already pretty thin so you want to be gentle when rolling it out and try to keep the thickness that it is. It should be anywhere from about 4-5 millimeters thin. The purpose of rolling out the dough in this recipe is more to get it at the desired length and width of 12×12, but the general rule for homemade or ready made is 4-5 mm.
Can You Open The Oven While Baking Puff Pastry?
The quick answer: No. You do not want to open your oven door while baking your puff pastry. If you have an oven with a glass door, this is the best way to keep an eye on your puff pastry. If you do not, then it is recommended to not open the oven door during the first 3/4’s of the baking time because this is when the pastry is in the process of puffing up and if you open the oven door then you will deflate the pastries. The best thing to do is just allow the pastry to cook for the amount of time that is called for on the recipe.
This puff pastry french toast can be served on its own with some powdered sugar, syrup and berries. Here’s more breakfast ideas to make this part of a complete decadent breakfast. Have you ever had breakfast for dinner? This would be so good with these other recipes:
