Cheese and Prosciutto Turnovers

These are my absolute weakness and I make them every Christmas Eve without fail. Prosciutto, cheese, puff pastry, oh my they are so delicious.

They sell cheese and bacon turnovers in our local delicatessen and when I’m feeling reckless I add one to my grocery order and scoff it up on my way home, then I regret not buying ten. I thought I’d make my version with prosciutto as they cook even quicker as you don’t have to wait for the bacon to crisp up. I’m so delighted that they are as quick as a flash to make and so will you be when you try them. Be warned they are additive.

Makes 6


6 slices prosciutto

90g mature cheddar cheese – grated

Pack of ready roll puff pastry

1 beaten egg to glaze.


Pre heat oven to 200c / 180C fan

Roll out your pastry on a floury work surface and cut out six even squares. (Mine were about 5×5 inches).

Place each pastry slice on a lined baking sheet.

Add your slice of prosciutto to each pastry square. Sprinkle over your grated cheese and fold in the sides and press to fasten.

Brush with your egg wash

Bake in the centre of your oven for approximately 14 minutes.
