Ingredients
Makes 8:
  • 2 sheets puff pastry
For the bechamel sauce
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup (240ml) warm milk 
  • 1 pinch of salt 
  • Freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Ground nutmeg (optional) 
The filling
  • 1/2 lb (220g) cooked ham, diced 
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, rinsed and chopped 
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, grated
Directions
  1. Cut the puff pastry sheets into 5-inch (13cm) squares. Set aside in the refrigerator. Pre-heat your oven to 400°F(200°C). 
  2. For the bechamel sauce: Melt butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Add flour and salt; cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture becomes pale golden with a slightly nutty aroma. 
  3. Pour warm milk in 2 steps, stirring constantly with wooden spoon and whisk until smooth. Cook the mixture, stirring constantly along the bottom of the saucepan, until boiling, about 7 minutes. 
  4. Reduce heat to low. Simmer gently until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. If you still have lumps, use your immersion blender! 
  5. Stir in spinach and cook for 1 minute. Add ham and cheese and stir well. Set aside. 
  6. Arrange the puff pastry squares on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Dollop 1 or 2 tablespoons of the bechamel mixture, top with grated cheese and close the pockets by folding the corners on top. 
  7. Make an egg wash using an egg and 1 coffeespoon of cold water. Brush the puff pastry and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until puffed and golden. Serve immediately with a crisp salad.
