If you can believe it, I didn't even really document the cooking of Easter Feaster 2012, but I made quite a lot of yummy foods INCLUDING a ham cooked in the slow cooker with COKE! As in cola! Turned out so nom nom and the leftovers ended up tasting better as the days went by. But there are only so many days that you can serve a seven year old turkey buns and ham buns, so I thought I better re-invent some of the leftovers and do it before a revolt broke out at our house! I literally threw these together, using some of Nick's fave flavours and cubes of my left-over ham
Hawaiian Pizza Puffs
1/2 pkg Tenderflake puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup chopped ham
2/3 cup grated cheese (mozza mix or Italian cheese mix)
1/2 cup pizza sauce
2 tbsp egg whites
sliced fresh basil, for garnish
flour for surface and rolling pin
Preheat oven to 400degrees and line a cookie sheet with baking paper. In a bowl, combine the pineapple, ham and pizza sauce; set aside.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry into a rectangle about 10x15ish? Enough to get 6 decent sized squares (I went with 5x5inches). Once you have your squares, divide the ham/pineapple mixture between the six of them.
Top with cheese and fold over into little triangles - top with cheese and seal with the tines of a fork.
Transfer to the baking sheet and lightly brush with the egg whites. Pop in the oven for about 25 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. Top with fresh basil and extra pizza sauce.
