Now, before you think, "This looks complicated" and leave, hear me out. This is all you need:
Basil Pesto - just a few spoonfuls
A tube of puff pastry - I use croissants
6 thin slices of Swiss Cheese
6 thin slices of ham
Here's what you do:
*Smack that tube of croissants on the edge of the counter and roll them out. Pinch the edges together so you have a rectangle of pastry on the counter.
*Spread a few spoonfuls of pesto over the pastry.
*Lay the 6 slices of ham and cheese over the pesto.
*Grab one edge and roll the whole thing until it's a log. If you want to get fancy, roll one side to the middle, then the opposite side to meet the first roll.
*Slice (with a serrated knife) into pieces and put them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
*Bake at 425 degrees for approximately 15 minutes.
This is what you'll find on your cookie sheet:
These are best served hot, but I've eaten them cold too. It's just like pizza, delicious at any temperature! If you have leftovers - not that that happens very often, you can reheat them the next day.
Now that I've written the post, I think I need to make a new batch. I'm off to the store for ingredients and I hope you are too! Let me know how you like them.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and please share, pin, comment and follow. I love having new friends at the Cottage!
