A bunch of delightful Breadsticks using ready-puff pastry filled with ham and Mozzarella.

Serves: 4 | Preparation time: 20 mins | Cooking time: 15-20 mins

  • Ready-rolled puff pastry: 320 g (about 1 standard-sized roll)
  • Cooked Ham: 150 g
  • Fresh Mozzarella, 2
  • Dried Rosemary, a teaspoon
  • Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, grated: 50 g
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a drizzle
  • A pinch of salt


Open and drain fresh mozzarella in a pasta strainer for a few minutes. Squeeze it gently and dry it with some kitchen paper and cube it. In this way, the mozzarella won’t release too much water and your puff pastry won’t turn out soggy.

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.

Prick the puff pastry with the prongs of a fork so that it won’t retain moisture nor swell up during baking.

Place the ham evenly on the puff pastry, add cubed mozzarella, sprinkle with rosemary, a pinch of salt. Cut the puff pastry into strips about 1,5 cm wide.

Roll up each of them by folding it in on the long side as to form a helix, seal the two ends.

Place them over an oven tray lined with baking paper.

Brush with some EVOO, sprinkle with grated Parmigiano and a pinch of salt.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and leave them to cool a little before serving.
