You will need…

  • 2 sheets frozen shortcut pastry
  • 2 tbs sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 115g grated cheddar
  • 85g grated swiss cheese
  • 3 slices ham
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 30g feta, crumbled
  • Fresh on lemon thyme to serve

Preheat oven to 220°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Cut 1 pastry sheet into 8 strips. Place remaining pastry sheet on the tray. Place 2 pastry strips on top of each other along the edge of the pastry sheet to create a border. Repeat with remaining strips. Trim excess pastry at the corners. Pinch the edges of the pastry to decorate.

Whisk the sour cream and 1 egg in a bowl until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cheddar and Swiss cheese. Spread the cheese mixture over the pastry, leaving a 2cm border around the edge.  Arrange the ham in a diamond pattern over the cheese mixture. Place 1 tomato half, cut-side up, in the centre of each diamond. Top with the feta.

Whisk the remaining egg in a small bowl. Brush the edges of the pastry with the egg. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Top with lemon thyme.
