It has been a rough two weeks for the family! Twinkle and Daddydoodledoo has been sick and our household has been upside down, topsy turvy, and hard to manage. Good thing it finally ended today — Twinkle is already well and the hubs is half recovered… And I’m back in the kitchen.
So, dahil medyo hilo pa ang Mommy Peach nyo, gawa muna tayo ng Ham and Cheese Turnovers. These great Ham and Cheese Turnovers are made from puff pastry. It’s great for a quick snack or school baon for your kids. I know your kids love anything with ham — mine does.
If you’d like to try out more ham related recipes, this food blog has a ham and potato soup recipe that I do recommend!

But let’s get back to these pastries…

I made these Ham and Cheese Turnovers using this frozen Kawan Puff Pastry Sheet.

- You should make small slits into the pastry to allow steam to escape. I forgot to do this but it turned out okay since what I made is already for consumption.
- Store the baked turnovers at room temperature for half a day or you can store in the fridge for two days.
- Reheat the turnovers in a 400℉ for 5-7 minutes until hot and flaky para mas ma-enjoy mo sya.
What’s not to love? These are flaky, cheesy, and buttery! I think I’m gonna make more of these in the coming weeks because they really loved it. I’m gonna experiment with different fillings as well.
