Puff pastry is very handy for quick snacks or lunch dishes. Always have a package in the freezer to make last minute triangles of delight. It’s great for sweet and savory, to feed a crowd or as a late night snack for yourself. This recipe can be eaten any time of the day, if you ask me. It’s gooey with cheese, sharpness from the spices and onion and salty from the ham.
4 sheets of Puff pastry (15 cm x 15 cm), defrosted
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 tsp Curry powder
2 big slices of Ham (or 4 small ones from pre-packed supermarket ham)
100 gr. Cheese (I used 50/50 young and mature Gouda cheese, but any soft cheese would do.)
1 Egg Yolk
– Pre heat the oven to 225 C. (Check package instructions of the puff pastry if this also goes for your particular brand.)
– Heat some butter or oil in a small pan and brown the onions slightly. Add the curry powder, stir through well. Take off the heat and set aside.
– Put the sheets of puff pastry on a baking tray that has been covered with grease proof paper.
– Slice the ham in half and put half a slice of ham on each sheet of puff pastry.
– Divide the onion mixture onto the four sheets by spooning it onto one corner.
– Add the cheese onto the onion mixture.
– Fold one corner over diagonally so you’ll get a triangle. Press the sides with a fork to stick the two sides together.
– Spread the egg yolk over the triangles.
– Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
