JARLSBERG®, APPLE AND BACON TURNOVERS
Jarlsberg, apples and bacon, wrapped in warm golden pastry. It tastes like a hug from your mom.
- 4 slices bacon, chopped
- 1 granny smith apple, peeled and finely diced
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 70 g Jarlsberg®, cut into small cubes
- 1 pkg frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Cook bacon pieces until crispy. Drain and place in a large bowl. Add apple, lemon juice, applesauce, maple syrup and Jarlsberg. Mix well.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Unfold puff pastry sheets, and repair any cracks by pressing the dough back together. Sprinkle with a bit of flour, and roll each sheet out to a thickness of about ⅛ inch. Cut the sheets into 12 equal squares. Lightly brush edges of squares with the beaten egg. Place about 1 tbsp of apple filling in centre of squares. Fold over puff pastry to create a triangle and gently press edges together. Using a fork, press edges to seal. Brush with egg.
Place turnovers on a baking tray, leaving about 1 inch between them. Prick tops of turnovers a few times with a fork.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until turnovers are puffed and golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before eating. The filling will be very hot.
