  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 5 tbsp cream cheese
  • 100g smoked salmon
  • small bunch chives, snipped


  1. Unroll the pastry and brush one side all over with the beaten egg. Sprinkle over the poppy seeds, then flip over the pastry. Spread the cream cheese over the pastry and top with the smoked salmon, then scatter over the chives. With one of the longer sides facing you, mark a line roughly down the centre, but don’t cut all the way through. Tightly roll each end in towards the middle until you reach the centre. Slice into 1cm-thick pieces and place, cut-side up, on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Chill until ready to bake, or freeze for up to 2 months.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Bake for 20-25 mins until puffed up and golden brown (if baking from frozen, cook for an extra 5 mins). Leave to cool on a wire rack before packing for your picnic.

A friend made these last night for our book club nibbles. They were absolutely delicious. I'm making them for Saturday night for a Parents class night get together. I'm sure they'll go down a storm!
