Cheese, Rosemary and Garlic Puff Pastry
‘T was the day after XMAS and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…
Seriously, it was a morning after some holidays (and holiday meals) and all I’ve had left in the refrigerator was leftovers – some cheese and sheet of ready-made puff pastry dough. Apparently, this was enough to prepare a very quick (less than 5 minutes) and very tasty salty pie for breakfast.
- ~70 gr of hard cheese (Kashkaval, Parmesan or Grana Padano)
- 100 gr of soft Goat Feta cheese
- 100 gr of Sour Cream (9%)
- Small sheet of ready-made puff pastry dough
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 branch of rosemary
- 1 egg
- Grate the hard cheese
- Mix the soft cheese with the sour cream in a bowl and then add the hard cheese, the egg and a crushed garlic clove. Mix everything thoroughly to obtain a uniform substance.
- Take a small baking form and put the sheet of the puff pastry on the bottom. Then pour in the mixture and decorate the upper surface with a rosemary branch.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes at 190C until the surface becomes brownish.
P.S. Since this is a classical “leftovers” recipe, the cheese can vary. For instance, once, for a larger form I’ve used a cup of cottage cheese, 100 grams of hard cheese, 100 grams of feta-like salty cheese and a cup of “natural” yogurt with two eggs. In this case, adding salt is hardly necessary as the cheeses are salty enough.
