Cheese and Bacon Puffs

I have just made some cheese and Bacon puffs and I thought I’d share the recipe quickly with you for the weekend!

This a family favourite, something I have been doing for years and a must at Christmas. They can be frozen uncooked, just get them out when you need them and pop them straight in the oven giving them an extra 2 to 4 minutes in the oven.  They can also be frozen cooked, just defrost and eat cold or warm them for a few minutes in a hot oven.

Cheese and Bacon Puffs

Ingredients

1lb (500g) pack of puff pastry

8oz (250g) Bacon

300g strong Cheddar cheese – grated

A little milk

Method

Pre-heat oven to Gas mark 7 (200c fan, 220c conventional, 425F)

Roll out the pastry to a rectangle about 1/16th” (3mm) thick and cut in half.

cover one half with strips of bacon and cover the bacon with just over half of the grated cheese,

lay the other half of the pastry on top of the bacon and cheese and press down firmly with your hands or a rolling pin,

Brush the top with milk and sprinkle with the rest of the grated cheese,

press the cheese down firmly and cutting through all layers cut into squares.

I wanted bite size this time so mine were only about 1 1/2″ (3cm) square.

Place onto a baking sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 7-10 minutes until the cheese is a deep golden colour.

Remove from the oven.  If any of them topple over just lift the top and replace it while they are still hot.

Transfer to a baking tray to cool.

  1. Great recipe. I always have a block of that exact pastry in the freezer, usually to top a pie, but I know my kids will love these. Great lunchbox filler as well
