Ingredients

  • 1 17 ounce package puff pastry thawed! should have 2 sheets in a box
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1 cup Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • 6 slices of bacon chopped
  • 2 large jalapeños diced seeds removed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 cups shredded white cheese
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • parmesan cheese for topping

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
    2. Make the filling: warm cream cheese in the microwave for 30-40 seconds until it is easily stirred. Add hummus, bacon, jalapeños and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste if desired.
    3. Roll out your sheets of puff pastry to twice its size with a lightly floured rolling pin. And cut it into 18 equal pieces (9 per sheet--most boxes have 2 sheets).
    4. Top each turnover with a heaping spoonful of filling and sprinkling of cheese.
    5. Whisk an egg well and brush on the egg around all edges. Fold over and crimp with a fork.
    6. Slice 2-3 air vents per turnover to allow steam to escape.
    7. Egg wash the tops and top with a sprinkling of cheese and a very thin jalapeño slice.
    8. Bake for 22 minutes until golden and delicious.

Notes

Egg wash can be omitted. Use water to seal edges.
Top can be brushed with butter, milk or olive oil to aid in browning if desired or left plain.
