Let’s do this !!

The ingredients :
A thick puff pastry (280 g)
2 slices of cooked ham
2 tablespoons of Pesto Rosso (I usually take Barilla’s which is very tasty) or red pepper cream
70 g grated cheese
1 egg yolk
A little bit of sesame
Step 0 : pre-heat your oven at 220 degrees.
Step 1 : unfold your pastry (too easy) and make cuts with a knife in the shape of a 8 branch star, up to 8 cm of your pastry border (still super easy)
Step 2 : spread the pesto rosso on the border of you puff pastry (ask your kids to do it, this is too simple for you!!)
Step 3 : cut the ham in 3 in the length and place them over the pesto rosso (now it’s your turn to do something, don’t you leave a knife in a kid’s hand !)
Step 4 : spread the cheese on the ham and fold the triangles of pastry toward the border.
Step 5 : brush the egg yolk on your pastry (it’s like painting at school, your 4 year old can take care of this) and add the sesame.
Step 6 : put in the oven for 10 minutes.
Step 7 : fight with your guests to get as much as possible !!!
So, how go was it???
You can cook this baby several ways: replace the pesto rosso with thin slices of fresh tomatoes, take goat cheese, regular pesto, put slices of grilled veggies, add cherry tomatoes or black olives… Whatever suits you !
