  • 1 Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
  • 250g Cooked Ham
  • 250g Cheese (We used Strong Cheddar


  • Cheese Grater
  • Baking Tray
  • Rolling Pin
  • Sharp Knife


  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C (200°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 7.
  2. Grate 250g of cheddar (We used a strong cheddar because we love the flavour).
  3. Spread the ham and cheese across the sheet of puff pastry making sure you get an even coverage.
  4. It’s time to roll your pastry. Start with one edge and tuck it under as you begin to roll. You’ll end up with a large thing which looks like a swiss-roll. Using a sharp knife, slice into 2cm pieces.
  5. Place your slices onto a non stick baking tray and wash the top with egg. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden on the top.
