Salami and Cheese in Puff Pastry


How can you read the title of this blog entry and not become instantly excited? I don’t know. I know it makes me pretty psyched. Last Thanksgiving I made this little treat as an appetizer for the Friendsgiving that I was hosting. But, in the insane sea of food, it got a little lost. No one remembers eating it, which is disappointing because it is crazy delicious. I found this from the Barefoot Contessa, so you know it has to be good. Last weekend I went over to have a girl’s night with some friends and decided that we deserved some puff pastry awesomeness to go with our “Ru Paul’s Drag Race” and “Chicago”.

I altered the filling a little from the original recipe, but the idea is the same. This is super easy and a real crowd pleaser. Give it a go for your next party, girl’s night, or night at home when you want to eat the equivalent of a giant hot pocket.

Ready to eat.

Salami and Cheese in Puff Pastry

1 package (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, defrosted (recommended: Pepperidge Farm)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 oz package thinly sliced salami
4 oz provolone cheese, sliced
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Lay 1 sheet of puff pastry on a floured board and carefully roll it out to 10 by 12 inches. Place it on a sheet pan and brush the center with the mustard, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Place a layer first of salami and then cheese, also leaving a 1-inch border.

Brush the border with the egg wash.

Place the second sheet of puff pastry on the floured board and roll it out to 10 by 12inches. Place the second sheet on top of the filled pastry, lining up the edges. Press together lightly to seal. Brush the top with egg wash.

and cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until puffed and golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes, slice, and serve hot or warm. (Although I did eat some leftovers cold out of my fridge the next morning and that was pretty good too. Or maybe I just had too many drinks at girls night.)

Either way, enjoy!
