Cooking Instructions

Step 1
To make Bechamel Sauce: In a pot, melt the Butter (3 1/2 Tbsp) . Remove from heat, and pour in All-Purpose Flour (1/3 cup) . Mix until you get a smooth paste. Allow it to cook over heat for two minutes to cook out the flour taste from the roux, while you stir.
Step 2
Slowly pour in the Milk (2 cups) . Add Ground Nutmeg (to taste) , Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Keep stirring until it starts boiling and gets as thick as you desire. Let cool, then store in a plastic or glass container until needed.
Step 3
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C (400 degrees F). Chop up the Mozzarella Cheese (2/3 cup) into cubes.
Step 4
Drain and chop the peeled Tomatoes (2 cups) . Season them with some Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 5
Lay out the Puff Pastry (20) . Right in the center of each puff pastry sheet, place 1 tsp of Bechamel sauce, 1 small piece of tomato, and 1 cube of mozzarella cheese.
Step 6
Roll the puff pastry from one corner to the other into a croissant shape.
Step 7
In a bowl, beat an Egg (1) with Milk (1 Tbsp) , and brush the wash onto each croissant.
Step 8
Bake at 200 degrees C (400 degrees F) for about 15-20 minutes, or until they get a nice golden-brown color. Remove from the oven and let them cool down a bit. These are best served warm (not hot), but even cold-ish they will rock your boat! Enjoy!
