Summer Lunches - Goats cheese and tomato puff pastry pie...

I love summer, not only because of the weather but the food and recipes it inspires. It's easy , quick and tasty food. Food shared with family and friends outside in the sunshine.

A few crackers and cheese, home made cheese straws and spicy coleslaw with a delicious puff pastry pie. Now doesn't that sound good on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Ready made puff pastry is a cooks best friend and is so versatile. Sweet or savory its delicious and you should always have some in the freezer ready for when you need it.

Here is a little savory recipe for you...


ready made puff pastry defrosted and rolled out
goats cheese
cherry tomatoes
red onion
salt and pepper
fresh basil
egg wash

or what ever you have really, spinach and feta or ham and cheddar. Nearly everything works. Treat like a pizza.


1. cut a boarder around your pastry making sure you don't cut all the way through. This is what will puff up during baking.
2. Fill the center with your filling, egg wash the sides and then pop in a hot oven for 20 min or until the pastry is cooked and golden.
3. Sprinkle with fresh basil and serve straight away.

So simple , so delicious.

Ah feels good to get a recipe up again :)

Hope everyone is having have a wonderful day and a lovely summer.
