As a kid growing up, we regularly had a house full of visitors. Quite often, these visits would be unexpected, and turn into an all-evening event.
It was at these times where mum would whip up one of her famous Ham & Cheese Pies. It was super quick to prepare and make, super yum and a great dish to make when on a budget. A real crowd-pleaser that feeds large groups.
Mums Ham & Cheese Pie was very well known in the circles of whom we mixed company with, everybody made sure that they would get in quick so as not to miss out!
Nowadays, I tend to make this Ham & Cheese Pie usually on a Sunday night when we just wish to have a quick easy dinner - or when I have a house full of hungry kids and teenagers!
To Celebrate Mothers Day, I will share this recipe here with you now;
3-4 x Puff Pastry Sheet
Sliced Ham (will need approximately 16-24 slices, depending on how generous you're feeling
Splash of milk
Sesame Seeds (optional)
Line a Lamington Tray with Baking Paper. Then line the base of the lamington tray with one and a half sheets of Puff Pastry.
Spread Mustard (& Mayo, if using) across the Puff Pastry. Then line with slices of ham.
Sprinkle Ham with Grated Cheese. Repeat with another layer of Ham and then more grated cheese.
Lay across the top the remaining sheets of Puff Pastry. Crimp edges and joins with a fork and pierce the top with either a fork or sharp knife to allow steam to escape.
Brush the splash of milk on top of the pastry with a pastry brush. Sprinkle top with Sesame Seeds.
Bake in Oven at 200 deg for about 15-20 minutes.
Cut into slices and serve.
