Ham and Pepper Twisters

Ingredients

  • 9 slices Buddig Ham
  • 2 red bell peppers, roasted
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed

Time:

60 minutes

Makes:

5 servings

Directions:

  • Roast the red bell peppers until outsides are charred. Place the bell peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Remove the charred skin and seeds from the peppers and place the flesh in a food processor. Add the cream cheese, salt and pepper and pulse until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Lay out the puff pastry and spread half of the bell pepper mixture over it. Lay ham over the bell pepper mixture. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the puff pastry in half horizontally then into 10 slices vertically (you'll end up with 20 twists). Twist each piece twice and place on a cooking sheet. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with the remaining pepper mixture. Enjoy!
