Method

  1. Preheat oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Unroll the pastry onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to 40 x 32cm. Spread a layer of pasta sauce over it, leaving a 1cm border around the edges. Arrange the ham evenly on top, then scatter the grated cheese over.

  2. Starting at one of the short ends, roll the pastry up as tightly as possible. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes or so.

  3. Take a very sharp knife and cut the roll into 12 equal slices, laying them flat on 2 non-stick baking trays as you go. Brush each pinwheel lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle over the herbs. Bake for 12-15 minutes until puffed and golden. Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Made these with red pesto, ham and grated mozzarella - yum! Rolling from the short end didn't seem like we'd get very many, so rolled the long side and then sliced into 14 swirls. Took about 17/18 mins @ 180C

I had taken out a pack of puff pastry and not used it for the coffee morning I hosted, so when I found this recipe I decided to use it for the kid's tea. So glad I stumbled across this recipe, these where delicious! Rather than ham I chopped up some cooked chicken and added some sweetcorn - but you could put anything on them. I will be making these a lot!

I've made these with Marmite and cheese which were just so nice but haven't made these yet. We also came up with pesto and parmesan or chocolate spread or maybe crushed pistachios and honey as alternatives.

I made these for the kids to nibble on at my Bar B Q last week. They were a great success with the adults also. I would definately make them again.

These are so easy to make and could be made with lots of different fillings. An excellent idea.

I make something similar, substituting the tomato sauce with pesto then sprinkle over a tin of salmon, some chopped spinach & either pine nuts or pumpkin seeds. We call them Salmon swirls & my daughter has them in her lunch box, I'm going to try the pizza ones tho for a change!

I absolutely love this recipe. Have made it twice now. Amazingly simple and fab for bonfire night. I tried baking in in a casserole dish and did a tare and share version, great for dinner with a fresh soup.

Have a kids party coming up and trying to make lots in advance...would these be good to freeze? If so then at what point?

goodfoodteam's picture

Hi there, thanks for the question. Yes, you can freeze these once sliced before baking. Bake from frozen, allowing a little extra cooking time.

I am organising a joint party for my kids....both in December eeeek!!! My son just started school and daughter just started nursery so loads of kids to invite...this recipe seems ideal but can this be preprepared...then popped in the freezer?
