Jambons are a type of square pastry filled with cheese and ham. The name is derived from the French word for ham, and they are common in Ireland and the UK.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. Melt butter over medium heat and add flour. Cook for 5 minutes and begin adding milk gradually until the mixture thickens.
  3. Cut your pre-prepared puff pastry into squares and spoon a generous amount of the mixture onto each square. Sprinkle some ham and grated cheese on top.
  4. Fold the corners of the puff pastry so that they meet in the centre, forming a panier feuilleté (puff pastry basket) shape.
  5. Beat the egg and brush it over each sealed panier feuilleté.
  6. Bake for 20–25 minutes until puffed and golden brown.
