Ham and Cheese pastry

A friend commented once that my recipes tend to be pretty tedious and time-consuming. Hence, I'm posting this entry to prove that I do make easy recipes too.

This recipe is a.w.e.s.o.m.e for parties or as a contribution for a potluck. It takes 5 minutes tops to prepare and is guaranteed to a be a hit with your guests! Plus, living in Germany, this recipe is superb because the ham and cheese is out-of-the-world here.


- A packet of puff pastry (Bl├Ątterteig)
- A packet of ham (about 6 slices)
- A packet of cheese (I used gouda)
- 1 egg yolk (beaten)

1. Pre-heat oven to about 200 degrees

2. Spread out puff pastry and place a layer of ham followed by a layer of cheese on it

3. Roll the entire thing length-wise and cut it into thin strips

4. Lay the strips facing upwards on a baking sheet and coat the top with a beaten egg yolk

5. Bake for about 20 minutes or according to the instructions of the puff pastry. Enjoy!

Hi Cindy!

It's really simple and delicious! You're gonna love it! No I didn't grate the gouda cheese. I just left it in slices.

Thanks! By the way, I have been silently reading your blog since you were pregnant with Sammy. You are doing so well as a first time mum! I remember struggling with mine for the first year. I'm also from Singapore but my hubby is aussie. We lived in Japan for a while when our son turned 1 and moved back to Oz last year and had our 2nd boy. Keep on writing! Sammy is very cute! My 2nd boy is only a few weeks older than Sammy :). - Cindy

Hi Cindy!

Thanks for introducing yourself! Do you have a blog too? Thanks for encouraging me! I find that there's so many things to learn as a Mom. It's a lot of character formation for myself too - not easy! So you have two boys eh?? I have 2 younger brothers and I know that 2 boys can be a handful! You must be doing great though!
