Cranberry, Bacon and Brie Parcels Recipe
These pastry parcels are a Christmas gift! Filled with creamy melted brie, smoky bacon and sweet cranberry they are utterly delicious...
Start by cooking the bacon to your preferred crispiness and put to the side.
Roll out your pastry and cut into 16 evenly sized rectangles.
Place 8 of your pastry rectangles onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving space between them.
Spread 1 tsp of cranberry sauce onto each of the rectangles, leaving a gap so it doesn’t reach the edges
On top of the cranberry layer a rasher of bacon and a slice of brie then cover with one of the remaining pastry rectangles.
Seal the pastry parcel by pressing down along the edges with a fork and make a small slit in the top of each parcel to allow for steam.
Place your parcels in the fridge for 10-15 minutes and preheat the oven to 180°C/355°F fan.
Remove your parcels from the fridge and brush with a bit of egg wash and a sprinkle of sea salt.
Bake your parcels in the oven for around 20-25 minutes until they are golden brown and nicely puffed up.
Leave to cool slightly before serving and enjoying!
With this recipe theres endless combinations of flavours, why not try replacing the brie with mozzarella and adding pesto and sun dried tomato?
