Let's skip the sob story about how I learnt to make them. To confess, I found them on Jus-Rol's site.
Here's a more detailed and better looking
- 1 Roll Puff Pastry
- Smoked Back Bacon Rashers/Bacon Medallions (Premium sort. Cheaper bacon has more water which affects the pastry and oil-yness
- Cheese (cheddar/red leicester is recommended)
Preheat oven to 220°C
Layout your pastry and cut into squares. A normal sheet of Jus-Rol pastry should get ~6 squares
Layout the bacon on the pastry! You can tuck the tail underneath the bacon so it fits
Wash all 4 corners with milk (for that golden pastry effect)
Shave some cheese onto the bacon (don't worry if you get some on the baking tray). Too much cheese can make it too greasy or too cheesey. A light shave like below is perfect.
Fold the pastries over itself into little envelopes
Wash the tops on these wraps with more milk wash
Add more cheese on top!
Then a sprinkle of freshly cracked black pepper. Salt shouldn't be needed because of the bacon
Put into the oven for ~12 minutes or until the pastry is a nice golden brown.
