Shark eggs

Hunting for bite-sized edibles I came up with these little cuties. No I didn't fight the great white, but I admit to humming a funny little tune (remember? Tadum, tadum, tadum) when I made these. It sure made for some looks at the table.

These crispy little crackers were made from left over scraps puff pastry. I needed little round-shaped puff pastry cups for another party finger food and what happens when you cut out little rounds out of a square puff pastry? You are left with odd-sized bits and pieces and since I really hate to throw good food out... I use it. Lindy, here's another something out of nothing for your collection!
I don't know how much you know about the shape and size of ray's or shark's eggs but they really look a-like so when people asked me what they were..... the answer was simple!

You don't need a recipe, do you? I simply cut the forms loose, arranged them on a baking sheet and sprinkled with freshly ground pepper and salt and added a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

Bake for a couple of minutes on 200C untill they are a golden brown and puffed. Check back tomorrow, you'll find how I used the puff pastry rounds...


  1. Crackers and a little cheese just the perfect little bite for a glass of wine.

  2. I love how they look, and have wondered what those little black things are when I have seen them. See I learned something new today! :)


  3. I'm just not that brave.

  4. They look terrific!
    I recently learned that such an egg with curls (like corkscrews) on the four points is a shark-egg and the shape like your crackers is a ray or skate egg! O the things you learn when your kids returns from a school outing by the seaside ;-)
