RICOTTA AND SPINACH PUFF PASTRY BITES

September 23, 2019
A cute twist on ancient cheese and spinach pockets! the sweetness of those cheese and Spinach Puff Pastry Bites is that you just get such a lot additional out of only one sheet of puff pastry as a result of there’s the next filling to pastry ratio!

RICOTTA AND SPINACH PUFF PASTRY BITES

I like these as a result of they're formed otherwise to the standard cheese and spinach triangles you ordinarily see. And not solely that, you get additional out of 1 sheet of pastry as a result of there’s the next “filling to pastry” quantitative relation. You get nine of those puffs out of every sheet of puff pastry, whereas i buy four if I create triangles for round the same quantity of filling.

RICOTTA AND SPINACH PUFF PASTRY BITES

INGREDIENTS :
FILLING:

  • 7 oz / 200g ricotta (preferably full fat but low fat also works) (Note 1)
  • 8 oz / 250g frozen chopped spinach , thawed and squeezed of excess water
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (or tasty or gruyere or any other melting cheese with flavour)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • Black pepper

PASTRY:

  • 2 sheets puff pastry (25cm/10" square), defrosted
  • 1 egg , lightly beaten (egg wash)

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Spray 2 standard muffin / cupcake tins with oil.

FILLING

  1. Place egg in a bowl and lightly whisk. Add remaining Filling ingredients and mix to combine. Taste and adjust salt to taste.

PASTRY

  1. Cut each pastry into 9 equal pieces (18 in total). You probably won't use 3 pieces.
  2. Mould 15 pieces of pastry into the muffin tins.
  3. Divide the Filling between each, then bring the four corners into the centre and press down to stick together. Don't overfill otherwise you won't be able to seal the pastries or they will burst open when baking (which regularly happens with mine).
  4. Brush with egg wash, then bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  5. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before removing.
  6. Serve warm or cool.
