Left over Treats

A very easy but tasty idea. You will need some pre bought mille feuille/pasta sfoglia, or puff pastry rolled out very very thinly. I find this recipe great when you have left over pastry from another project! You can also play about with the ingredients, adding some hot chili peppers, fresh herbs or even fruit!

Left over pastry
1 / 2 cup grated cheddar - the sharp type
1 / 2 cup grated Gouda
(or any other cheeses you may like!)
1 / 3 of a small onion
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Herbs of choice

Grill the onion.
Defrost the mille feuille pastry.
Mix the cheeses, season.
Spread a generous amount of the cheese on top of the pastry and add some chopped onion.
Add the herbs- if fresh even better!
Roll up both sides till they meet in the middle
Using a sharp knife, cut into about1 /2 inch slices
Lay flat on a cookie sheet and bake at 400F for about 20 mins

If you prefer sweet over savoury, I would use sugar, cinnamon and a touch of apricot jam as the filling.


  1. OMG those look scrumptious. I always get so hungry coming here. Keep up the tasty treats.

  2. Oh my Lord these look scumptious! I thought at first these were left over pastries. I looked at the picture and was confounded-there were leftovers? In my house these would have been all consumed. Then I read on and realized that you meant it as an idea for left over pastry dough. Great idea!

  3. This is going to be my new favorite treat. I can get creative with this one.

    Thank You
