10 minute dinner | ham & cheese puffs
These puffs are a perfect brunch, lunch, dinner or - if made a little smaller - appetizer! They are so easy and so good. The puff pastry is the secret. It does the heavy lifting making these puffs flaky and - well - puffy.
I brought these to my girlfriend this week for a family dinner. They're great for delivering to someone because they are just as good at room temperature as they are warm. Which means... you can make these earlier in the afternoon and have them for dinner! Even take them with you to soccer practice or a basketball game!
HAM & CHEESE PUFFS
Preheat oven to 350. Roll out puff pastry and cut each sheet into 4 pieces
Divide ham and cheese on top of the pastry.
Beat the egg yolk and milk together and brush the edges of the pastry with the egg yolk mixture.
Bring up the pastry corners and pinch them together. Pinch down the sides where the egg wash is painted on.
Brush the tops of the pastry with beaten egg yolk. Bake 10 mins until cheese is bubbly
In a jar or a small bowl combine mustard, honey, olive oil, vinegar, and parsley. Shake vigorously.
