Discovered it was better at 200° C than 180° C, so I've altered the recipe

This superb finger food needs only ready rolled puff pasty, bacon and cheese for a delicious snack.

This type of recipe is really easy to customise by just adding a little of your favourite flavours. I love to add cream cheese and mustard; what's your favourite?

Mise en place

  • Preheat your oven to 200° C - place near top of oven and use top heat only (if available)


  1. Ensure the puff pastry roll is properly defrosted if it has been frozen
  2. Unroll the puff pastry onto the greaseproof paper it is wrapped in
  3. Cut the puff pastry into 6 equal sized squares
  4. Mix pommery mustard and freshly ground black pepper into Philadelphia cream cheese ensuring the mixture is well combined
  5. Add a dollop of mustardy cream cheese into the centre of each square of puff pastry
  6. Lay a rasher of bacon diagonally over each mound of cream cheese
  7. Scatter the grated cheese over the bacon
  8. Although considered wisdom suggests using egg wash to join the pastry, my experiments show it's better to twist the dry pastry edges together to join them
  9. Fold all four bare corners of the pastry together and press together to seal
  10. Brush the tops of the pastry with the beaten egg
  11. Slide the pastries onto a greaseproof backing sheet or pizza stone and bake for 20 or until golden brown
  12. Move to as cooling rack to cool, once baked
