These incredibly easy cheese and bacon turnovers make a quick and delicious snack. 4 ingredients and 25 minutes is all you need to whip-up a tray of these tasty turnovers for brunch, lunch or an easy dinner.
- Puff pastry: I love cooking from scratch but ready-rolled puff pastry is such a great time saver and therefore a key ingredient for this quick and easy recipe. Shapes and sizes tend to vary, my recipe is based on two 24x24cm sheets, cut into 8 squares in total.
- Bacon: I recommend using streaky bacon for this recipe. Make sure the bacon rashers are thin and not too short as the bacon will shrink during baking.
- Cheese: Grated cheddar, gouda and edam work well for this recipe.
It’s almost embarrassing how easy these this delicious snack is to make. Simply crisp-up the bacon in the oven for 5 minutes. Cut the puff pastry into squares, add bacon and cheese, turn over the ends and wash with egg yolk. Bake and cool. That’s it!
These tasty turnovers are perfect for picnics, a buffet or as appetisers. They also make a delicious after-school snack and are a great addition to lunch boxes.
You can store the turnovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Simply re-heat them slightly before serving.

Once baked, you can freeze the turnovers for up to 3 months in an airtight container. Simply reheat them straight from the freezer at 200C/390F.
