Description

Make this easy weekend lunch with a few ingredients from the pantry.

Time

5 min prep, 30 min cook

Serves

6

Ingredients

  • 3 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups chopped bacon or ham
  • 210g packet sliced Swiss or Gruyere cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten with a pinch of salt

Method


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 C (200 C fan forced). Line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper. Place one sheet of pastry on one lined tray. Leave a 2cm border and spread with 2 tablespoons mustard, cover half the pastry with 1/3 each of the bacon and cheese.
  2. Fold pastry over to enclose and use a fork to press edges together. Cut two 4cm long slits in the centre of the pastry for ventilation. Brush top with egg. Repeat with remaining pastry and ingredients.
  3. Bake turnovers in oven for 25-30 min or until puffed and golden. Allow to stand for 5 min, cut into squares and serve with a rocket and parmesan salad if desired.

TIP Add a single layer of tomato slices between ham and cheese. Or substitute cranberry sauce for mustard and use sliced turkey and Camembert cheese.
