VIDEO: Duck Breast Pastry Pockets

Who will you make these elegant duck pastry pockets for? 

Ingredients

  • 1 whole duck breast
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 3-4 slices ham
  • 3-4  tbsp raspberry jam
  • 3- 4 slices Muenster cheese

Method

  1. Fry the duck breast in a pan until medium rare (or your preference) and browned on the outside.
  2. Roll out a sheet of puff pastry, and layer the ham slices  in the middle.
  3. Spread the raspberry jam over the ham slices, and follow with the Muenster cheese, and the duck breast.

  5. Brush the pastry with the egg yolk, then score lightly with a knife.
