These are easy to make and taste amazing – ham, cheese, and seasoning wrapped in puff pastry – can assemble and freeze for later. These are SO good. Great for parties or a quick lunch or dinner.
Are you ready for football??? I am SOOOO ready! I can’t wait to see all our football friends. These Ham and Cheese Pastry Puffs are perfect for tailgating. They are bite-sized and travel well. These pastry puffs are good warm or at room temperature.
These are easy to make. Cut the puff pastry into squares, top with dijon mustard, ham, cheese, spices and fold up. Easy peasy! I made an animated picture so you can get an idea of how to assemble these.
We ate these for lunch the other day and they were AMAZING! The flavors are great. The spice blend that is sprinkled on top of the pastries really puts this dish over the top. I used a combination of swiss and white cheddar cheese. If you don’t like either or both of those cheeses, use your favorite cheese. No matter the cheese, these are a sure crowd pleaser!
