Steps

Everything Bagel Bourekas With Eggs, Scallions and Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 4 eggs until homogeneous, then stir in the chives and mozzarella.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Pour the egg mixture into the hot skillet and cook until the bottom is set. Use a spatula to gently pull the bottom cooked parts to the sides of the pan to make space for more of the mixture to cook. Repeat this gentle pulling process one or two more times until a majority of the mixture is set, then transfer to a bowl. The eggs should still be quite wet, as they'll continue to cook in the oven. Season them with salt and pepper and a few shakes of Tabasco sauce.
  4. On a work surface, roll out the puff pastry to a 10x15-inch rectangle. Cut it into six 5-inch squares. Top each of the squares with a schmear of scallion cream cheese and a spoonful of the scrambled eggs, distributing them evenly and leaving a 3/4-inch border around the edges.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water to make an egg wash. Brush the edges of the puff pastry squares with egg wash, fold them in half, and pinch the edges to seal them well. Transfer to the baking sheet, placing them 1 inch apart.
  6. Brush the tops with egg wash and top with the everything bagel topping. Bake until golden brown. Begin checking for doneness at 30 minutes.
  7. Let cool slightly, and serve with ketchup. Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated in a toaster oven.
