  • 1 packet puff pastry refrigerated (Note)
  • 1-2 slices ham depending on their size
  • 1-2 slices Gouda/Cheddar/ Gruyere cheese depending on their size
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • some sesame seeds


  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius/ 430 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Unroll the puff pastry on the working surface and cut it into large triangles. Cut the ham and cheese into strips.
  • Lay a few strips of ham and a few strips of the cheese on the broad side of the triangle. Start rolling the triangle starting at the base.
  • Place on the prepared baking tray with the seam facing down. Bend in the edges to create a crescent shape.
  • Beat the egg yolk and the milk together in a small bowl. Brush the croissants with this mixture and sprinkle them with sesame seeds (or nigella seeds for a change).
  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until deeply golden and baked through. Serve immediately.



About 275 g/ 10 oz. Frozen puff pastry can be used as well. Work with it according to the packet's instructions.
