Make it for a light meal served with salad, appetizers, or TV snacks.
Serving: about 12-15 small swirls
Preparation : 5-10 minutes
Baking and waiting : 60 minutes
-1 puff pastry sheet (Pepperidge Farm is selling frozen pack with 2 sheets per pack)
-1 egg mixed with 1 tbsp of water
-1 tbsp of pesto (optional)
-3 slices of ham or smoked chicken breast
-2 cups of shredded cheese
Leave the puff pastry sheet at room temperature for 20 minutes (until it is easy to handle). Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Beat the egg, the water and the pesto. Unfold the pastry on a floured surface. Lightly brush the egg mixture on the dough. Cut the ham or chicken in thin strip. Place them on the dough. Sprinkle the cheese on.
Roll dough up from the long side (like a jelly roll).
Cut into 12-15 rolls.
Place the swirls on a sheet pan that you covered with waxed paper. Brush them again with the egg mixture, just to add a little bit of color.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
