These turnovers are a variation of traditional Italian bruschetta. Traditional bruschetta is made by rubbing toasted bread with olive oil and garlic.
NO DEFROSTING NEEDED!
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4–5
- 1 (17-ounce) box frozen puff pastry
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small tomato, chopped
- 4–6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
- ¼–½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Defrost puff pastry on the counter for about 30 minutes.
Spread puff pastry sheet on a floured surface and roll it out a few times to flatten folds in pastry. Use a 3″ diameter circle and cut out 9 circles.
On half of each pastry circle put garlic, tomato, basil, and mozzarella cheese. Fold over half of each circle (making a half moon shape) and seal edges by pressing down.
Place on baking sheet and flash freeze. Transfer to freezer bag.
Place frozen pastries on baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 10 minutes.
Brush each turnover with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Return to oven for 10–15 additional minutes until pastry turns a golden brown.
