Puff Pastry Appetizer Bites
The weather has been freezing the past week, not to mention the big snow storm that hit on Friday. In this weather, when you are looking for reasons to not got out and shovel the snow, doing a television series marathon seems the perfect excuse. We have been watching "The Wire" and these appetizer bites kept us glued to the television screen.
I picked up the puff pastry sheet at Trader Joe's and created a variety of toppings. I have made it a few times now with meat, mushrooms, jam, applesauce, color bell peppers etc - and have received good feedback from everyone.
1 puff pastry sheet
Cheese - I used three cheeses: Pepper Jack, Cheddar and Swiss
Toppings: For this post, I used some leftover lamb kebabs which I made recently. (recipe coming in the next post)
Garnish - You can garnish with variety of herbs. For this round, I used cilantro.
This is the simple part.
Preheat the oven to 400 degF. Cut the puff pastry to bite size pieces and layer each piece individually with cheese and meat.
Bake for 15 minutes and serve warm.
