Ingredients
  • 1 sheet Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry (box comes with 2, you will use only 1)
  • 6 pcs bacon
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded (about 3.25 ounces)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
Instructions
  1. Defrost Puff Pastry according to the directions.

  2. Using a rolling pin, roll out the Puff Pastry to double the size it comes as, keeping it in the rectangular shape.

  3. Cut the Puff Pastry in half vertically. 

  4. Take beaten egg, and brush it over the top of one of the Puff Pastry sheets.

  5. sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the same Puff Pastry you brushed the egg wash.

  6. Take the remaining Puff Pastry sheet and place it over the top of the first one like a sandwich.  Press the entire sheet firmly into the first so that it is sealed firmly.

  7. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut strips of pastry to about 1" thick.  You should get about 10-12 strips depending on how thin you rolled the pastry.

  8. Using the rolling pin, roll out the bacon to be thinner.  It should be rolled out to the same length as the pastry is.  You will then cut in half length-wise the bacon so that you get 2 pieces of bacon per slice.

  9. Lay one piece of bacon over the top of the cheese filled Pastry then form the Pastry into a loop.  (You can also knot them if you want some variety.)

  10. Take a mesh rack and place it over a cookie sheet.  Spray the rack with a nonstick cooking spray.  Place your Pastry Puffs on the rack, about 2 inches a part.

  11. Bake at 400° for 30 - 40 minutes until the bacon is browned and the pastry is golden brown.  Check your oven after 20 minutes to make sure they aren't getting too brown.  You can also flip the pan to promote even browning.

  12. Serve hot from the oven.
