PUFF PASTRY STRAWS WITH HAM



     
This is something quick and nice to accompany a drink or to serve at a party. They taste great with ham but you can use whatever you like: salami, speck, Parma ham, mortadella, lonza.


1 puff pastry roll (rectangular shape)
60 g honey roasted ham, |Parma ham, Salami, Mortadella or whatever you like
1 egg  
20 g Parmesan cheese
Salt
Paprika



Preheat the oven to 180C.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

In a bowl mix the egg, the grated Parmesan, the salt and a pinch of Paprika.

Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured work surface so that the longest side is facing you.

Spread over  the mixture of egg, Parmesan salt and Paprika. Place the ham slices onto half of the pastry.

Now fold the pastry in half and cut into 1 cm strips.

Carefully twist each piece of pastry 4-5 times so it looks like a curly straw, brush with the remaining egg mixture then place on the baking tray.

Cook for about 15 minutes. They taste really nice when they are still warm.
