These tasty little morsels are so incredibly easy to make, inexpensive and very popular. Great finger food for parties for both adults and kids alike. Makes about 40. Substitute the ham for salami or for a vegetarian version, chopped olives and/or sundried tomatoes. Substitute the dried herbs for fresh.
2 sheets of ready rolled frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/2 red capsicum, finely diced
100g ham, chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup grated cheese
1/4 cup tomato paste
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a baking tray with a little oil.
- Combine the capsicum, ham, herbs and cheese in a bowl.
- Spread the puff pastry sheets with tomato paste, leaving a 2cm border on one side. Sprinkle the ham mixture over the top.
- Roll up the pastry leaving the plain edge until last. Brush with a little water and fold to seal.
