bacon & blue cheese bites

These delicious little nibbles are great for a party. I've used Gorgonzola but you can use whatever blue cheese you like.

Makes approx 14 at approx 13p each

Prep 15 minutes Cooking 15-20 minutes


1 pack ready rolled puff pastry (I used one from Lidl 69p!)

3 rashers bacon, cooked until crisp then chopped

60g blue cheese, chopped into small pieces or crumbled

1 egg yolk

Pre-heat the oven 170Fan/190C/Gas5.

Lay the pastry out on a board & scatter over the bacon & then the cheese.

Roll up the pastry from the short end as tightly as you can, it will be lumpy but don't worry. Brush the end of the pastry with egg to seal.

Slice the roll into rounds approximately 1cm thick & place on a baking sheet. Brush with egg.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.

The bites can be served hot or cold.

Make them ahead & re-heat them by simply wrapping them in foil & placing in a low oven (about 140Fan/160C/Gas3) for 10 minutes!
