mangia mondays 26: puff pastry wrapped apples with cheddar & bacon

howdy, ya'll
& welcome to

a super-mega-awesome blog hop i co-host each week
with the ever-so-amazing
lisa from shine your light.

this week i'm sharing

puff pastry wrapped apples with cheddar & bacon

yield: 24
1 package (2 sheets) puff pastry, thawed
2 C extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 large granny smith apple, peeled & diced
10 strips thick cut bacon, cooked, drained, & diced
1 egg beaten, for wash

1. preheat oven to 400 f. prepare a mini-muffin pan by spraying with a nonstick cooking spray.

2. cut each sheet of puff pastry into thirds, then each third into fourths (you'll have 12 squares per sheet). place a square of puff pastry in each mini-muffin cup & press to fit, leaving the sides to fold over later.

3. fill each square with a pinch of cheese, a couple of pieces of diced apple, bacon, & a bit more cheese. fold the corners of each squares up to the center & press together to seal shut. brush the tops with a bit of egg wash.

4. bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown, rotating halfway through.
