Ingredients

  • rashers Bacon – thick back bacon or middle
  • 320 g Puff Pastry
  • 240 g Grated Mozzarella
  • 1 Egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c or equivalent.
  2. Line a large baking tray with grease proof paper or a non stick baking mat.
  3. Start frying 6 Rashers of Thick Back Bacon in a frying pan over a medium heat.
  4. Meanwhile, unroll a 320g Puff Pastry sheet or roll out pastry into a rectangle around 22cm x 33cm.
  5. Trim the edges of the pastry and cut it into 6 squares.  They don’t need to be perfect but the squarer your squares, the easier it will be to form the pastries.
  6. By this time the bacon should be nearly cooked. Remember it will cook more in the oven so don’t take it too far. Take it off the heat and place aside.
  7. Take one of the pastry squares and either lay it directly on the lined baking tray or a non stick surface. Use a little flour if you need to.
  8. Lay a bacon rasher diagonally across each pastry square. Tuck any stray bits under itself or cut the rasher to make it fit. I needed to do this as my rashers were very wide.
  9. Beat 1 Egg and use a pastry brush to coat the exposed pastry corners with egg wash.
  10. Top the bacon with 40g of Grated Mozzarella Cheese.
  11. Fold one corner of each pastry square over the top of the bacon and cheese. Fold the second corner to slightly overlap the first. Gently press the corner down to seal.
  12. Carefully more the folded pastry onto the lined baking tray if needed. Repeat the process with the remaining pastry squares and ingredients.
  13. Egg wash all the visible pastry.
  14. Pop the baking tray in the oven for 15 minutes. The pastries are ready when they are a light golden brown.
  15. Allow them to cool slightly before eating.
