Bacon Cheddar Spirals

December 31, 2013

I love anything and everything wrapped in puff pastry. The simplest of ingredients become a delicate amuse bouche, delicate enough to ring in the New Year, and rugged enough to please your hungriest football fan.

Ingredients:
1 sheet puff pastry , thawed and rolled to remove creases
1/2 C. very sharp cheddar, shredded
2 green onions, minced (about 1/4 cup)
5 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled (I have used 6 strips of vegetarian bacon here)

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet lightly to remove the fold marks.

Cover in cheese. add top with bacon and onion. Go all the way to the ends of the pastry, or your first and last cut will be empty!

Starting at a short side, roll up like a jelly roll.  Place the pastry, seam-side down, onto a baking sheet.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until the pastry is firm.

Cut the pastry crosswise into 1/2-inch slices.  Place the slices onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (I used foil- don’t you do that!)

Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool for 10 minutes.
