He could ruin me and this blog if he wanted to; The food ideas that this gentleman that I'm lucky to call my friend has going around his head far exceed anything my pickled brain could ever come up with. But he's a nice guy and is gonna use his powers for good and contribute to this blog on a regular basis... Much to my relief!
Here's his first post:
"Patatas Bravas Mince Jambons"
Patatas Bravas paste
Shop bought puff pastry
Suitable melty cheese (I used Port Salut and Cheddar)
First fry up the mince until cooked.
Put the Patatas Bravas in a suace pan and simmer for 2 minutes, as per the instructions add the mince and 100mls of water and reduce the mixture down. Add cream to suit your taste.
Here's the mixture you're left with being left out to cool.
Next unroll your puff pastry and cut up to suit how many Jambons you'll require, I cut up 15 squares.
Spoon the mixture into the centre of the square.
Plonk your cheese on top...
And another dollop of mixture on top...
Brush the corners with milk or beaten egg and fold the corners to get something that looks like this.
Here's the 15 brushed with milk and ready to be boxed off into the oven.
Heat your oven to 200 degrees and put them in the bottom rack for 12 minutes and then move to the middle rack for another 6 minutes.
Here's the finished articles:
