Mini ham and cheese turnovers


  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the water and yeast. Mix with a whisk or with a fork until the yeast dissolves completely.
  • Add the remaining ingredients for the dough and beat on medium speed, using the hook attachment, until you create a nice dough that pulls back from the sides of the bowl.
  • Allow the dough to rest for ½ an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • When the dough has rested, dust a clean working surface with some flour, place the dough over it and roll out to a sheet that is 3-4 mm thick.
  • Use a 10 cm round cookie cutter and cut the sheet into round circles. Collect any leftover dough and repeat the same process.
  • Use the same cookie cutter to cut the slices of ham.
  • Place a circle of dough to create a base. Top with ketchup and a slice of ham and cover with another circle of dough to complete.
  • Use a sharp, straight knife and score the turnover in a crisscross manner, making sure NOT to connect the scoring in the center so that it doesn’t fall apart.
  • Repeat the same process again in order to create 8 pieces that are still connected in the center.
  • Bring two pieces together and press on the edges to connect them and turn them into one piece. Repeat the same process until you have made 4 double pieces for all of the turnovers. They should look like flowers.
  • You can fill them with ketchup and cheeses.
  • Brush the surface with the egg wash and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden.
