Those who have been reading my articles for a while know that I enjoy spending time in the kitchen wildly when I can experiment with new and innovative culinary ideas. And that's precisely what happened recently. Thanks to the kindness of my neighbor, I discovered an excellent method for a super quick, easy-to-prepare, and extraordinarily delicious snack.

Because this recipe utilizes only the best products, which are very popular in our kitchens, I am confident it will garner rave reviews in every household. So, don't hesitate to discover what I have in store for you today. It won't disappoint!

This ingredient is always worth keeping in your kitchen

I'm not sure about you, but I prefer to be prepared for all occasions. Similarly, this preparation extends to unexpected visits from friends or family. That's why I always have puff pastry on hand in my kitchen. There are several reasons for this.

Firstly, you can transform it into a sweet, enticing dessert or a delicious snack. Secondly, by utilizing ready-made pastry, all you need to do is combine it with a few ingredients, and voila! Your oven does the rest of the work, allowing you to focus on your guests. I also have another reason to appreciate puff pastry - working with it is a delight. Preparations couldn't be quicker or easier!

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry,
  • 1/2 cup of tomato sauce,
  • 16 ounces of mushrooms,
  • 6 slices of large ham,
  • 3/4 cup of yellow cheese,
  • 1/2 cup of fresh parsley,
  • spices: oregano, salt, and pepper.

Preparation:

  1. Begin by cleaning the mushrooms and slicing them into thin pieces. Sauté them in a greased, heated pan for several minutes.
  2. While the mushrooms cook, grate the yellow cheese and chop the fresh parsley.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the tomato sauce and spices. Blend the ingredients well to create the perfect flavor fusion.
  4. Spread the sheet of puff pastry on your kitchen counter. Directly on the dough, spread the sauce mixture. An ordinary spoon, knife, or kitchen brush can accomplish this task.
  5. Layer the slices of ham, sautéed mushrooms, yellow cheese, and parsley on top.
  6. Once all the ingredients are layered on the dough, begin rolling it into a log shape, and then slice it into smaller pieces. This process creates miniature spirals, which should be transferred to a baking tray.
  7. Bake the spirals for 20 minutes in a preheated oven set at 374 degrees Fahrenheit. Enjoy the delicious result!
