Imagine golden brown, flaky, light pastry oozing with melting cheese and sweet peppers and you're thinking of these easy hot Camembert pastry parcels. These make a very impressive vegetarian starter or light meal.
Ready in 30-35 minutes
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6 and pop a baking sheet in to heat. Unroll 1 thawed sheet from a 425g pack frozen Jus-Rol puff pastry. Cut in half to give 2 wide rectangles.
2. Cut 150g round petit Camembert in half to make 2 semi-circles, then cut each half horizontally to give 4 semi-circles. Place 1 piece of cheese in the centre of each pastry rectangle, then top with a good tablespoonful of cooked mixed peppers (best from a jar). Put the remaining cheese on top, season with black pepper and sprinkle with some fresh thyme.
3. Beat an egg yolk with a little water. Brush the pastry edges with egg, then bring up the pastry to form a parcel. Press the edges to seal with a fork, then brush each parcel with more egg. Transfer to the hot baking sheet and cook for 20-25 minutes. Bake until golden and cooked through. Serve with a green salad.
