Ghoulish Cheese and Bacon Turnovers

These scary looking cheese and bacon turnovers are perfect to serve to family and friends for Halloween. They’re also great fun to make, with or without children involved.

Our Dry Cured Oak Smoked Bacon is cured traditionally by hand and smoked using oak chippings for an unrivalled smoky flavour and truly meaty texture.

When it comes to pork, we source only the finest cuts of Red Tractor British Pork. This gives the meaty taste our customers love.

  • 4 Thick Rashers of Oak Smoked Dry Cured Bacon
  • 1 sheet of premade puff pastry
  • 100g mature cheddar, grated
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 tbsp chutney
  • 12 raisins

Cooking Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Unroll the pastry on the baking parchment and divide into 4 vertical rectangles. Mark a line two thirds of the way up each rectangle.
  • Cut zig zag lines across the top of each shape, making them look like teeth. Then spread chutney over the bottom two thirds of the shapes, we used Radnor Preserves Roasted Nectarine Chutney. sprinkle over the grated cheese and then add a rasher of bacon to each.
  • Fold over the top half of each shape, then trim the corners to give a rounded shape. Then place your raisins in on the pastry to look like eyes and a nose. Finish by brushing with the egg, once beaten.
  • Place the baking parchment on to a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 mins until the cheese has melted and the pastry is golden.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack for 5-10 mins, before serving warm.
