Antipasto Stuffed Pastry

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Galbani┬« Mozzarella, sliced and divided
  • 1 large sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 slices genoa salami, cut in 1/4 inch slices
  • Grape tomatoes (small handful)
  • 1/4 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/4 cup green olives, sliced
  • 1/2 stalk of celery
  • 1/3 onion
  • 1/3 green pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Heat oven to 400┬░F and prepare two baking sheets using parchment paper, or coat with cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle flour on your work surface and roll out the pastry square as thinly as you can. With a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice the puff pastry into small squares (about 4″ by 4″).
  • Place one-half of cheese and the salami, vegetables, spices, oil, and vinegar in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped.
  • On half of the squares, sprinkle the second portion of sliced mozzarella, then place about 1-2 teaspoons of the mixture on top. Season with salt and pepper. Top with remaining pastry squares. Seal pastries carefully, pressing edges with a fork.
  • In a small bowl, beat 1 egg with a fork and brush pastries with egg wash or water for a secure seal.
  • Bake for about 13 minutes. (Check after 10 minutes, as oven temperatures vary slightly.) When your pastries are golden brown, remove them from the oven onto a glass plate.
