This DIY recipe for homemade pop-tarts completely changes the concept of the normally sweet pastry.

Pop-tarts are usually a sticky-sweet treat, filled with strawberry jam or gooey chocolate and covered in icing and sprinkles. This homemade pop-tarts recipe, however, focuses on savory flavors, creating pop-tarts as they've never been seen before. Using beloved breakfast foods, the savory mini pastries are a perfect way to start off the day.

The savory homemade pop-tarts are made by cutting rectangles out of flaky, pie-crust-like dough and filling them with eggs and cream cheese. Next, another layer of dough is placed on top of the stuffing and the pockets are sealed with a fork. The homemade pop-tarts bake in the oven until they're golden-brown. When they're warm and ready, they can be topped with cheese, bacon, mini quail eggs or even lox and capers.
