Ham & Cheese Piggie Blankies

My firstborn was born Chinese but has 100% Aussie tastebuds.

He loves nothing more than pasta, pizzas, sandwiches and pastries.

Thankfully, he tolerates the asian food that I cook at home (even that took a long time) but really he only wants pasta 24-7.

So I had an idea for lunch yesterday since he normally has sandwiches for lunch.

I had all the ingredients at home, so I made some ham, cheese and tomatoes piggie blankies for him.

It was terribly simple that I'm embarrassed to post this but it makes a good weekday lunch for the kiddies or even as a snack.

He loved it so much that he whalloped 7 at a go. So give this a go!

100g of Ham
1 block of cheddar cheese (or whatever you have at home)
1 tomato
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 egg - beaten

Firstly, turn the oven on to 200 degrees celsius.

Cut puff pastry sheet into 9 cubes. Then put shreds of ham, cheese and tomato diagonally.

Roll the puff pastry. (fold one side to another.)
Brush with beaten egg. Put it into the oven for 12-15 minutes till it turns golden brown.
Serve with tomato relish or tomato sauce.


  1. Oooh, this is really easy to make, will try this soon! My lunch needs to be simple so I can have more time to do other stuff during the short window of time when Min is napping before we zip out again to pick Nat. :)

  2. Ya easy and fast is my mantra too! You can do diff variations like feta and sundried tomato too!

    hi, can i check where did you get the puff pastry and also the brand? can't seem to find them in NTUC

  6. Justina -- I bought my puff pastry at phoon huat. It's from the brand Pampas. Have u checked out the frozen section of ntuc? They usually sell the 3 pack there. :)

    Thanks for your info! i search but only find those for Spring roll so not sure if its suitable

  8. @Justina - Hmm don't think that would work. Maybe can try cold storage? But thus far, phoon huat has the cheapest ones, i find!

  9. I'm going to try making these for my fusspot who's going through a phase at the moment.

    Plus it looks so easy to make too :)
