Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp. water

  • 2 green onions, chopped (about 1/4 cup)

  • 2 tbsp. chopped pimientos (optional)

  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves, crushed

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 1/2 lb. sliced cooked ham

  • 1/2 lb. sliced cooked turkey

  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves

  • 4 oz. sliced Swiss cheese

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.  Stir the onions, pimientos, if desired, and oregano in a small bowl.

  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 16x12-inch rectangle.  With the short side facing you, layer the ham, turkey, spinach and cheese on the bottom half of the pastry to within 1 inch of the edge.  Sprinkle with the onion mixture.  Starting at the short side, roll up like a jelly roll.  Place seam-side down onto a baking sheet.  Tuck the ends under to seal.  Brush the pastry with the egg mixture.

  3. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

Tip

Heat is the enemy of Puff Pastry—it handles best when cold. So avoid working with it on hot, humid days, in a stifling hot kitchen or next to your oven.

When serving Puff Pastry, cut with a serrated knife for the most even, attractive presentation.

Puff Pastry can puff up to 8 times its original thickness. That means even a sheet rolled to a thin ¼-inch thickness will rise 2 inches.

Use a marble pastry board to help keep Puff Pastry cold while rolling and cutting.
