Feuilleté de fromage, lardon et tomate

5 Aug

I got this recipe from a box of puff pastry I used months ago. I’ve kept the box but was lost in our never ending kalat at home. But I unearthed it the other day and since I was inspired by the step-grandmother’s home cooking prowess over the weekend, I declared this week “Gourmet Week”.

Making this was simple comme bonjour. It took me a minute to dice up the ingredients, another maybe 5 minutes to assemble everything and by the time the 10 minute oven preheat period was over the entire thing was ready to be put in. I love quick, easy and savory recipes like this one.

What you’ll need: (for 4)

  • a box of puff pastry
  • 1 big tomato
  • 100g of goat cheese or fromage blanc
  • 4 strips of bacon or lard fumé
  • freshly ground pepper
  • fresh basil leaves

How to do it:

– Preheat the oven to 210°C (Th 7) for 10 minutes

– Divide the puff pastry into 4 squares and put them onto a parchment lined baking sheet

– Dice the tomatoes and cut the goat cheese into thin slices

– On each piece of puff pastry, layer the cheese, tomatoes and bacon. Season with pepper and a few basil leaves

– Fold in the pieces of pastry and seal with a bit of water

– (Optional) Brush top of pastry with an egg wash ( egg yolk and a bit of water/milk)

– Bake in 210°C (Th 7) for 25 minutes

Simple and savory.

Will definitely make this again soon.
