  • 1 sheet (225 g) frozen butter puff pastry, thawed 
  • 1 Ontario Yellow Fleshed Potato 
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh Ontario Rosemary Leaves
  • 1 clove Ontario Garlic, pressed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Ontario Aged Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) diced Ontario Shallot
  • 35 g sliced Ontario Prosciutto
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled Ontario Feta Cheese

Garnish: fresh Ontario Rosemary Leaves and crushed red pepper flakes 


Unroll puff pastry sheet, leaving pastry on parchment paper. If necessary roll pastry into 10-inch (25 cm) square; cut into 16 pieces. Using parchment, transfer pastry to baking sheet; separate pieces. Cover with tea towel and refrigerate.

Slice potato lengthwise into quarters; slice thinly crosswise (about 1 cup/250 mL). Place in small bowl. Add oil, chopped rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper to taste; toss to coat. Remove pastry from refrigerator. Evenly sprinkle Cheddar on each square; arrange potato slices on top and scatter shallot. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 20 minutes. 

Tear prosciutto into bite-size pieces (about 1/2 cup/125 mL). Remove baking sheet from oven. Evenly sprinkle feta on squares; top with prosciutto. Bake for 5 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with rosemary and red pepper flakes.
