Cheese Puffs

These are very easy, very tasty, and look impressive with little effort. Obviously you can vary the cheeses, but the Feta adds a beautiful saltiness. You could also swap the Cheddar for a nutty Gruyere. I wouldn’t recommend a melting cheese though. Just a word of warning: these are addictive.


1 packet puff pastry (I use the square sheets)

200 g Greek Feta, crumbled

a handful grated Parmesan

a handful grated Cheddar (smoked is great)

2 tbspn chopped flat leaf parsley

1 egg

cracked pepper, to taste

1 egg yolk, lightly beaten, for brushing over the pastry

1. In a large bowl add the cheeses, parsley, egg, and pepper. Mix well until it’s all combined.

2. Pre heat the oven to hot, 180 C. Taking a sheet of puff pastry, cut out circles about 12 cm. I get five circles to a pastry sheet. Spoon a teaspoon of filling into the centre of the pastry circle. Fold over, joining to make a half circle. Squeeze out any air, and use a fork to press the edges together to seal.

3. Put the pastries on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Keep filling pastry circles until you have used all the filling.

4. Brush lightly with beaten egg yolk, and bake for about twenty minutes, until golden.
