I always loved a good Greggs pasty for a treat when we’re out and about but it’s only recently that I’ve discovered the delights of a Greggs cheese and bacon wrap – they’re so delicious but even better than that, they’re so easy to make yourself at home!
How to make your homemade version of a Greggs cheese and bacon wrap….
2 rashers of bacon per wrap that you plan to make.
Grated cheese, depending on how cheesey you want your wrap to be but I use around 30g of cheese per wrap.
Beaten egg or milk to brush the pastry with.
- First of all, you need puff pastry to make this recipe. I buy ready made and today’s is ready rolled too courtesy of the reduced section in Morrisons. I’ve also had great success using the packets of pastry mix that you can find with the packets of cake mix in the baking aisle at the supermarket for about 50p.
- You need to roll your puff pastry out into squares, the size of which are dependent on how big you want your wraps to be but mine are around 15-20 cm squares.
- Next you need to lay your bacon on top of the pastry squares, diagonally through the centre from corner to corner. You can use raw bacon as long as you cut the fatty bits off but I prefer to cook mine a little bit first as I like my bacon quite crispy. Alternatively, you can just use ham leftovers like I did today.
- Sprinkle your grated cheese on top of the bacon (or ham).
- Bring in the corners to the centre and gently push them together on top of the bacon and cheese. I know I don’t need to say this but it’s the corners that don’t have any bacon on them that you need to bring to the centre.
- Brush any exposed pastry with your egg or milk mix.
- Bake in the over for around 20 minutes at 200 c.
- It’s cooked when it looks exactly like a Greggs cheese and bacon wrap. 😉
There you have it, your own (much cheaper) version of the Greggs cheese and bacon wrap. Gorgeous with mash and beans!
