Monte Cristo Palmiers
  • all-purpose flour (for dusting)
  • 1 sheet puff pastry (thawed)
  • 6 thin slices ham (minced)
  • 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons thyme (leaves, chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain Dijon mustard (plus more to serve)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • On a lightly flowered surface, lightly roll out the puff pastry into a 10 x 16-inch rectangle. In a small bowl, mix together the ham, Gruyere cheese, Swiss cheese, and thyme, and set aside.
  • In another small bowl whisk together the olive oil and whole grain Dijon until smooth. Brush the puff pastry with Dijon mixture, and sprinkle ham mixture evenly on top.
  • Fold short sides of dough into center creating a letter. Fold the creased left side over right to make a log. Place log onto one of the prepared baking sheets and freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine egg yolk and water to make egg wash.
  • Remove from freezer and brush log with egg wash. Cut dough crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices (about 15 pieces). Place slices back onto the baking sheets cut side up and bake until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve with more whole grain Dijon mustard.
  • Tip: Substitute the ham with your favorite deli meat!
