Hi I've just started making puff pastry - it puffs fine so I've frozen a lump. I would like to make some yummy things with it. Any ideas?
For a pie, can I just use shortcrust for the base and puff for the top - would that work OK or be a bit odd? I want to stretch out the puff so it seems a shame to make a pie with the base weighted with filling....<puff virgin>
Ooh I made a nice pie last week, but I used ready rolled puff pastry because I am a slattern.
Gently fry a big sliced leek and a big sliced onion. You want them to soften but not colour. Put them in a bowl and mix in a packet of cubed feta, one egg, a packet of chopped baby spinach and some thyme and black pepper.
Put the pastry on a baking sheet and put the filling on half of it then fold over and crimp. Cut some slashes in the top and bake. Gorgeous.
Chop 2 leeks and fry in butter Fry 2 chicken breasts cut into bite sized chunks Mix together with small jar of holland arise sauce and 2 tablespoons of whole grain mustard Add 3/4 of a slab of grated gruyere and then mix all together Place in the middle of the party and seal Cook in the oven for 25 mins and you'll have a truly delicious parcel.
Served with roasted potatoes, veggies and gravy.......
Roll out thin cut into 2. Sprinkle parmasen, strips of parma ham and celery seeds. Brussh second sheet with egg wash and put it eggy side down on the cheesy one. Squash it a bit to seal the layers. Refridgerate for 30 minutes and then cut into strips. Twist and bake. They are soooooooo yummy.
