En Croute is a food that has been wrapped in pastry dough and then baked in the oven. Traditionally, the type of pastry used for making Pâté en Croute is a simple straight pastry dough called pâte à pâté, or pâté pastry. But today, puff pastry is frequently used for most en croute recipes.
  • Puff pastry squares
For the filling
  • 2 cups grated string cheese (you can use paneer, feta, halloumi or cheddar here too)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley leaves
  • For the egg wash
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  1. Beat the egg with the vinegar, this will be your egg wash.
  2. Mix the grated cheese with the parsley
  3. I used pre-cut puff pastry squares but you can use a sheet of puff pastry and roll it out thinly and then cut it into squares
  4. Brush the tops with egg wash
  5. Place a heaped tablespoon of the filling in the center of each square
  6. Fold on corner onto the one across from it diagonally
  7. Use a fork to seal the edges
  8. Brush each turnover with egg wash.
  9. Put each turnover onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 15- 20 minutes at 425F/220C/Gas mark 6 or until the turniovers are golden brown.
