  • 1 x 400 g pack Woolworths ready-rolled puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 x 200 g sachet Woolworths fresh cheese sauce, chilled
  • 350 g leftover gammon, shredded
  • 200 g mozzarella, cut into small cubes
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • 20 g mixed sesame seeds
  • 120 g Parmesan, grated

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Unroll the pastry and cut out rounds using a round cookie cutter 6 cm in diameter.
2. Fill a round with 2 t cheese sauce, 2 t gammon and 1 cube mozzarella. Cover with another pastry round to create a parcel.
3. Crimp the edges using your fingers, and then again using a fork to ensure they don’t burst. Repeat with the remaining pastry and place on a lined baking tray.
4. Brush the parcels with the beaten egg, sprinkle over the sesame seeds and Parmesan.
5. Bake for 10–15 minutes or until golden and puffed up. Insert a skewer into each parcel and serve immediately.

    This is brilliant for when the guys kuier around the braai fire or watching rugby (will we ever go there again?). Super easy. I will serve some sort of dip with it, merely because I know the group in my group.
