Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Line your pan with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil for easy cleanup!  



  • 1 Sheet Frozen Puff Pastry thawed
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Mustard
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese fresh, grated
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Cups Ham chopped
  • 1 Cup Spinach fresh, chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Water
  • Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil


Step 1

Heat the oven to 400° F and line the baking sheet with Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil to keep the sauce from spilling out and burning onto the pan.

Step 2

Roll out the puff pastry dough into a square and cut out 4 smaller squares. Set aside on the foil-lined baking sheet in the fridge.

Step 3

In a pot over medium heat, add the butter and cook until melted.

Step 4

Stir in the garlic and cook until tender, about 1 minute.

Step 5

Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour, ground mustard and nutmeg. Continue to stir for about a minute then slowly add the milk and bring to a simmer for 3 minutes or until thickened.

Step 6

Stir in the cheeses, meat and spinach and salt to taste. Turn off the burner and set aside.

Step 7

Pull out the puff pastry from the fridge. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water.

Step 8

Place a large spoonful of filling in the middle of each pastry dough and fold in each corner like a packet.

Step 9

Brush the corner pieces with the egg wash then place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Step 10

Remove from the oven and eat hot or at room temperature.
