It's Bacony, It's Cheesy, It's Puffy - What's Not To Love?

It's not nutrish, but it is most def delish.

Bacon and Cheese Danish

1 sheet store-bought puff pasty, cut into quarters
8 slices cooked bacon
About ¼ cup cheese – blue (crumbled) or extra-sharp Cheddar (grated)
½ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons spicy mustard
½ teaspoon paprika
Fresh ground black pepper
Egg wash for pastry top

Preheat oven to 400F.  In a small bowl stir together the sour cream, Worcestershire, mustard, paprika, and as much pepper as you like.  The consistency should be thick.  Put quartered puff pastry on a baking sheet.  Spread squares with the sour cream mixture, then sprinkle with cheese.  Place two slices of the cooked bacon on top of that, then bring two opposite corners together and seal.  Brush pastry top with beaten egg.

Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until golden brown.  Then eat them all before everyone else gets up and feign ignorance when they ask you what that heavenly aroma is.

I imagine some caramelised onions or a tomato slice on these wouldn't go amiss, either...  hmmmm...!
