Cheese Slice

A little like individual cheese pastries, easy to make. Best to make them in rectangles and cut in half for the lunch box as they are quite filling.

Serves:          4                    Preparation Time:  10 mins

                                             Cook Time:  20 mins



  • 250g/8 oz readymade puff pastry, or ready rolled puff pastry sheet
  • 250g/8 oz Selection of cheese – cheddar, gouda, mozzarella, grated
  • 3 or 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten to glaze.
  • (You can also added chopped cooked potatoes and a few herbs, if desired)



Heat oven to 170°C/340°F/Gas mark 4.


Roll out the pastry to 1cm/ ¼ in. or open out the pastry depending if you have ready rolled or not. Cut into 4 rectangles.


Place the cheese and a sprinkling of spring onions on to one side of the pastry, leaving a gap round the edge. Egg wash the edges of the pastry and fold over. Seal, and glaze with remaining egg, and lightly ‘slash’ the top of the pastry.


Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and pastry is completely cooked. Remove from the oven and cool. Cut diagonally in half to serve.
