Tomato Basil Pastries
I love these savory Italian inspired Tomato Basil Pastries. I eat them for breakfast if I’m on the run, as a mid-morning snack or paired with a salad at lunchtime. They are a great addition to any picnic basket or even to kids lunchboxes.
They couldn’t be simpler to make either. Start by cutting the pastry into 4 even pieces. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and top with slices of tomato and torn basil leaves. Fold the opposite corners of the puff pastry squares into the center. Bake in the oven until the golden brown and the cheese has melted.
