Servings: 9


  • 2 sheets puff pastry 1 box
  • ¼ cup mustard Dijon, grainy, and yellow are all fine
  • 1.5 cups ~8 ounces chopped ham
  • 1.75 cups cheese ~6 ounces shredded cheddar or gruyere
  • 2 egg yolks


  • Cut defrosted puff pastry into 18 squares by cutting each sheet into thirds, and cutting each third of a sheet into a third to make squares.
    Place each square on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Spread ¼ teaspoon of dijon diagonally across each square.
  • Place about 1 Tablespoon of chopped ham on top of the dijon, followed by 1 Tablespoon of shredded cheese onto each square.
  • Spread a small amount of egg yolk on one corner of each pastry square. Make sure it's NOT one of the corners with the ham/cheese/mustard. Fold the opposite corner over the filling, then fold the egged corner on top of it and press to seal. Repeat for all pieces of puff pastry.
  • Brush the top of each pastry with egg yolk.
  • Bake at 350° F for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastries are golden brown.
