High Ho, High Ho… It’s off to work we go.
Gather your ingredients.
Cook the bacon until browned, and then dice and reserve.
Defrost and lay the puff pastry on a clean dry surface.
Break the egg into a small bowl, add a tablespoon of water, and whisk until incorporated.
Mix the dijon mustard, the yellow mustard, and the honey together in a small bowl.
MAKING THE PUFF PASTRIES
Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c)
Using a pastry brush, brush 1/4 of the mustard on each square.
For each square, layer with 1 slice Swiss cheese, 1 slice turkey, 1 quarter of the chopped bacon, and 1 slice of cheddar.
Chef’s Note: There are all kinds of sliced turkeys available. You’ve got regular, smoked, honey, Cajun… you name it. Choose your favorite variety and go for it.
Add some kosher salt, and pepper, to taste… or not.
Brush some of the egg wash on the edges of each square.
Fold into a triangle, and then seal the edges with a sealing tool, or the tines of a fork.
Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and brush the tops with more of the egg wash. And at this point sprinkle a bit of dried basil on top of each one.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the puff pastries are a beautiful golden brown.
Serve alone, or with a small tossed salad. Enjoy.
Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
