Faff-Free Cooking with Jackie Johnson – Cheese & Chorizo Puffs

My motto has always been ‘never trust a skinny cook!' I do like to share recipes that I know work for me. They are not necessarily of my invention – but I will always give you the origin and maybe the story behind them! These recipes are relatively easy to make – hence the title, Faff-Free Cooking.

So today’s treat is – Cheese & Chorizo Puffs


            60g grated cheese – cheddar or mozzarella
            150g chorizo, chopped
            320g ready-rolled puff pastry
            1 egg - beaten
            Paprika for dusting

Preparation method

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.

2. With a 4 inch round pastry cutter, cut as many rounds as you can from the sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry.

3. Put the cheese and chorizo in a bowl and mix well.

4. Place a heaped teaspoon of the cheese and chorizo mix in the centre of the pastry round and fold in half sealing the edges together well.

5. Brush each puff with beaten egg, dust with paprika and bake for 20 mins. Cool on a wire rack.
