“Set aside the bread and serve this ham and cheese melt on puff pastry instead. Sweet and savory never tasted so good...especially when topped with a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar.” - by Campbell's Kitchen
Original recipe yields 4 sandwiches
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
- Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut into 4 (6-inch) squares. Brush the edges of the pastries with the egg mixture.
- With a corner of 1 pastry facing you, place 2 slices ham and 1 slice cheese on the bottom half of the pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and press the edges to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastries. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Sprinkle the pastries with the confectioners' sugar. Serve with the maple syrup.

Also, I used Gruyere instead of swiss. Looks fancy and tastes decadent. Outstanding!"
"This was okay. Because you have to seal the crusts for the pastry sheets, you get a lot of 'bread' and all the ham and cheese together in just one spot. My family liked it, but we aren't rushing to ma..." See moreke this again."
