Ingredients

  • 375g packet ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 100ml crème fraîche
  • 8 slices good-quality roast ham (cooked on the bone, then sliced, a deli will have it)
  • handful flat leaf parsley , roughly chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put pastry on a baking sheet and score a line about 3cm inside to create a border. With a fork, prick inside the border only. Brush all over with the beaten egg.

  • STEP 2

    Bake the pastry for 12 mins until well risen. Spread the creme fraiche within the pastry border, season with pepper and return to the oven for a further 8-10 mins.

  • STEP 3

    Take from the oven when well coloured, drape the sliced ham over, then sprinkle with the parsley. Serve with a roast vegetable or tomato and red onion salad.

RECIPE TIPS
GIVE IT A TWIST

Stir 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard or horseradish cream into the crème fraîche.

MAKE IT VEGGIE

Replace the ham with mushrooms cooked in garlic butter.
