Turkey-Bacon Puff Pastry


  • 2 slices thick-sliced turkey bacon
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 thin slices of turkey
  • Dijon mustard
  • 2 slices swiss cheese

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Lightly butter or spray an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking pan.

Step 2: Place a paper towel on a microwave-safe plate and lay the bacon slices in the center.  Fold the excess paper towel over the bacon and microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp.

Step 3: Unfold the puff pastry and cut it lengthwise into thirds.  Set 1 piece aside for another use.

Step 4: Cut the 2 remaining pastry strips in half widthwise to form 4 rectangles measuring about 3×5 inches.  Lay 2 of the dough rectangles on the baking pan and arrange 1 of the turkey slices on each piece leaving a 1/4-inch border around the entire edge of the dough.  Spread a little mustard over the turkey and top with the cheese.  Break the bacon slices in half, arrange on top of the cheese, and top with the remaining turkey.

Step 5: Place the remaining pieces of dough on top of the turkey and press on all the sides with a fork to seal the edges.  Bake the pockets for 15 to 18 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

Serves 1, Enjoy!
