S is for Snack

Having got bored with the usual snacks, I made these mozzarella munchies using a variation of the recipe in Paul Hollywood's How to Bake book.

There were more...I just didn't find my phone quickly enough before they started disappearing...


  • 1 roll of butter puff pastry
  • 1 pack of smoked Pancetta lardons
  • 1 250 grm ball of mozzarella, torn into small bits
  • 6 spring onions (scallions), trimmed and sliced on the diagonal into 10 mm pieces
  • (White) pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  1. Heat the oven to 220°C and cut some baking paper to fit your usual oven tray
  2. Pan fry the lardons until they start to color but are not browned
  3. Unroll the pastry and cut in half into two rectangles
  4. Scatter the meat, cheese and onions evenly over the pastry and then grind over some pepper*
  5. Re-roll the pastry forming two sausage shapes
  6. Cut each roll into six and place the slices on the oven tray
  7. Brush the tops and sides with some of the egg to glaze and pop into the oven for about 20 minutes
  8. Serve warm with or without a side salad.
