Bacon, Cheddar and Pesto Pinwheels
Perfect for sharing | Serves 2 - 4
Make it feel like Christmas every day with our Bacon, Cheddar and Pesto Pinwheels. We’ve wrapped up our pinwheels in a buttery, flakey puff pastry and given them a flavoursome twist with pesto, mixed with sun-dried tomatoes. Finished with salty bacon and rich melted cheese, it’s a side you’ll want to present on your dinner table again and again.
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

a) Unfold the puff pastry onto a chopping board, but keep it on its baking paper to allow for easier rolling. b) Spread out the pesto mixture over the pastry in a thin layer, leaving a 1cm border on all sides. c) Evenly sprinkle over the cooked bacon lardons and the cheese. d) Then carefully roll from the long side, using the baking paper to help you, enclosing the filling to make a spiral.
a) Line a baking tray with baking paper. Trim (and discard) the end 1cm from each end of the puff pastry log, then carefully slice into 2cm wide rounds. TIP: a serrated knife makes it easier, you don’t want to squash the pastry. b) Lay on your baking tray spaced well apart to allow them to puff. c) Brush with oil. Bake in your oven until golden, 20-25 mins. d) Then remove and serve warm on a large plate for sharing, enjoy!
