But there is an unlimited number of possible stuffing's to enjoy. The Horn Player actually (sit down now) said he would like spinach as a main ingredient. I know, that's a veggie, but hey, I'm giving it a try if he will eat it. Fruit, that's next since Summer is in full swing here in Dixie. I'll report back on my inspirational results.

It seems I'm really into the instant gratification type of cooking lately. My last post was an appetizer style nosh and now this. It's always a good time to test an idea, however. This is rich, gooey and quite tasty. But it isn't something you'd want to make very often. I think it would be very nice if thinly sliced and served as a heavy hors d'oeuvre. This time I divided the sheet of pastry into four equal blocks, but of course you could use the entire sheet and make one large roll. That would be super served on a long cutting board for a buffet supper. I'm thinking little bowls of pickled items served alongside would be perfect to counter the richness of the pastry and its filling. So many ideas with Puff Pastry.
