These tasty pastry swirls look so good, it's hard to believe they're so easy and quick to make! We've stuffed light puff pastry with lean ham and cheese, and added baby spinach leaves for a burst of extra nutrients. Serve them warm for a weekend breakfast treat, or with a crisp fresh salad for a more substantial lunch.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Make sure the spinach leaves are completely dry before using, otherwise they may make the pastry soggy, and use small baby spinach leaves as they will roll up well inside the pastry. most cooked sliced ham is gluten free, but do check as some isn't.

Swap This

Swap the ham for cooked bacon or chicken.
