I’m stuck at home today because we have tradies over, and my lunch options were looking pretty dismal. I had some sliced ham, some cheese… sadly, no left overs of last night’s delicious beef rending. It looked like I was heading down the glum road towards a ham and cheese sandwich when I was bitten by that little bug, inspiration.
I suddenly remembered this gem I made at Christmas last year. A Nutella puff pastry Christmas tree that was a hit with everyone, young and old.
So I decided to make a ham and cheese pizza puff instead. With no tomato paste in my pantry, I had to use ketchup (but really, I’m not complaining) and I couldn’t be bothered wasting an egg on egg wash so all it took was ham, cheese, ketchup and puff pastry. So super easy, and a million times better than a ham and cheese sandwich!
