Puff Pastry Gorgonzola and Cooked Ham Pinwheels

We had some fun in our kitchen by playing with puff pastry, it’s so easy to turn it into a bunch of delightful starters.

We chose Gorgonzola cheese and cooked ham filling for these nice pinwheels.


Serves 4, Preparation time 15 mins, Cooking time 15 mins

  • Ready-rolled puff pastry: 1 standard-sized roll
  • Finely Sliced Cooked Ham: 150 g
  • Gorgonzola cheese: 60 g
  • Parmigiano Reggiano, grated: to taste
  • Egg, beaten: 1
  • Optional, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a tbsp
  • Thyme, dried: to taste
  • Poppy seeds: to taste
  • A pinch of salt

Method

Beat up the egg with a bit of milk in a bowl.

Take the puff pastry straight from the fridge, roll it out, prick it all over with the prongs of a fork.
Place Gorgonzola chunks and ham slices, sprinkle evenly with grated Parmigiano cheese, leaving about 1cm clear around the edges.

Roll it up tightly into a sausage, cut into roughly 2cm rounds. Brush each pinwheel with beaten egg or just with a drizzle of olive oil, then coat it in poppy seeds and / or dried thyme, add a pinch of salt.
Place them on an oven tray lined with baking paper.

Bake 180°C / 350 F / Gas 4 10 to 15 minutes and leave them to cool a little before serving.
