Step by step recipe:
- 3 min.
- 5 min.Cover the pastry with slices of ham but avoid overlapping them as far as possible.
- 3 min.Roll up the pastry...
- ...gently into a...
- 30 min....cylinder.
Stick down the end of the pastry (the last inch or 2 centimeters) using a little beaten egg as "glue".
Chill in the freezer for 15 minutes (or 30 minutes in the fridge) to firm up the pastry and make the roll easier to cut.
- 2 min.After this time, preheat the oven to 220°C (430°F).
Glaze the roll with beaten egg.
- 5 min.Then cut into slices about 5 mm (1/4 inch) thick...
- ...and arrange these on a baking sheet.
Don't worry if the slices aren't perfectly round at this stage, they will swell as they cook and regain their shape.
- 10 min.Bake until nicely browned (about 10 minutes). Best served hot or warm.
Remarks:The spirals can be cooked beforehand and reheated quickly in the oven.
You can vary the type of ham, or even use smoked salmon instead.
