Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 12 Twists
- 2 Sheets Puff Pastry, thawed as necessary
- 10 Slices Prosciutto/Parma Ham
- 2 Large Handfuls Cheddar, finely grated
- few Pinches Dried Oregano
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp Milk
- Black Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 180c/356f.
Unroll your pastry and place straight onto a baking sheet in a suitably sized oven tray.
Evenly space out your Cheese and push down with your hands to flatten. Sprinkle a little Oregano and Black Pepper, then evenly space out your Prosciutto. You might need to cut a piece in half/quarter to fit perfectly.
Take a sharp knife and cut into 1 inch strips. Space out the strips then twist a couple of times.
Combine your beaten Egg with 1 tbsp Milk and brush the surfaces of your twists.
Pop in the oven for 15-20 mins or until golden and crispy. Enjoy warm or cold laster in the day!
a) Size - Different brands of pre made puff pastry will come in different sizes, some square some rectangular etc. As long as you fully cover the surface with your ingredients, cut into 1 inch strips and make sure they are spaced out on the tray, it really doesn't matter what length they are.
b) Baking Sheet - You'll find that many pastries actually come wrapped in a sheet which 99% of the time is suitable to bake. Just check the instructions to make sure.
c) Space - It's important to give your Twists space in the oven else they will stick together!
d) Salt - You'll have twigged on to the fact I add no salt throughout the recipe. That is indeed because prosciutto is already incredibly salty. I actually find that using a mild cheddar instead of a sharp cheddar also reduces the salty taste if that's something you're not a fan of.
