  • 1 package frozen puff pastry, 2 sheets, thawed in the refrigerator for several days
  • 3 tsp(s) Dijon mustard
  • 10-12 slices of prosciutto
  • 1/2 cup(s) Grana Padano hard cheese, grated

Cooking Instructions

Preheat your oven to 400 F degrees. Place the puff pastry sheets on your work surface so the longest edge faces you. Roll out into a rectangle to the personal desired thickness.

Using a pastry brush cover each sheet of puff pastry with a thin coating of Dijon mustard. Add a single layer of prosciutto, leaving a 1" margin at the edge farthest from you. Sprinkle with cheese.

Gently and tightly roll up the works. With your sharpest knife, slice the 'log' into 1/2 to 1 inch thick rounds and lay on a parchment or silicon lined baking sheet. The slices may deform a bit, reform with your fingers and don’t worry: they’ll look great when they bake! Leave some expansion space between the pieces.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
