Ingredients

  • 1 sheet butter puff pastry See Note 1
  • 170 g (6 oz) bacon - cut into 1cm (.5 inch) cubes
  • 80 g (3 oz) cheddar cheese - grated
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard See Note 2
  • 1 egg - beaten, for egg wash

Topping:

  • 20 g (1 oz) cheddar cheese - grated

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C (390 F).
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small frying pan over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon for about 8 minutes, or until lightly golden. Set aside to cool.
  • Place your pastry sheet on the lined baking tray.
  • Spread the mustard on the pastry, leaving a 1 cm (.5 inch) border around the edge.
  • Cut the pastry into four even squares.
  • Divide the cooled bacon mixture between the four squares and, place in the centre of each square.
  • Top the bacon mixture with the grated cheese.
  • Brush the edge without the mustard with beaten egg. Fold over the pastry to form a triangle, being careful to keep the mixture away from the edges.
    Crimp the edges of the pastry with a fork to seal it.
  • Brush the top of each triangle with egg wash, and top with the additional grated cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and cooked through.
    Allow the pastries to cool slightly for a few minutes before serving.

Notes

  1. My puff pastry sheet measured 24 cm X 24 cm (9 ½″) square.  If the puff pastry defrosts before you have prepared the filling, place the puff pastry in the refrigerator until ready to use. It must remain chilled.
  2. The Australian tablespoon is 20 ml or 4 teaspoons. In many other countries, the tablespoon is 15 ml or 3 teaspoons.  Please adjust your measurements if necessary.
  3. Please note, the nutritional information is based on one turnover. The nutritional information is an estimate only.
