Do you ever make-up an idea for dinner spontaneously while starring at the contents of your fridge? Well that’s how these guys were created.
I have a very bad habit of not planning subsequent meals with leftover ingredients from another, which results in a fridge/freezer full of random things and unfortunately find their way to the trash before I use them. Thankfully, every now and then I figure out a way to mesh some of them together into something super tasty (and sometimes it’s just “meh” and never shows it’s face on here).
On this occasion I brought together a leftover sheet of puff pastry, deli sliced salami, shredded Mozzarella, and homemade pizza sauce. All rolled together these created what would be an appetizer, but when you eat 10 of them in one sitting I am pretty sure it ends up being classified as dinner. But can you really blame me? Just look at their flaky loveliness!
One year ago: Caramelized Honey Dijon Chicken Wrap
Makes 20 pieces
1/2 of a 17.3 oz. package of puff pasty sheets (1 sheet), thawed
1 Tbsp water
1/2 cup Mozzarella, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan, shredded
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
9 slices salami (or use pepperoni)
Pizza sauce, for dipping
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
- Beat egg and water in a small bowl. In a separate medium bowl, stir together the cheeses and seasonings.
- Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Brush with egg mixture. Top with cheese mixture and then overlay the salami slices.
- Starting with the short side closest to you, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into 20 quarter-inch pieces and place on baking sheets. Brush with egg mixture and bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve with pizza sauce.
