These ham, gruyere and artichoke pastry twists are an easy and elegant appetizer! This is a perfect recipe for the upcoming holiday season!
Now that we are full on into fall, it’s time to start thinking about food. Well, not that I don’t always think about food, but that’s a different problem. With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I’ve been playing with some new recipes. Specifically appetizers, since I could just live off of those.
I don’t know why I haven’t used puff pastry more. It’s fun to use, you can’t really go wrong and it looks like you put a lot of effort into your dish. But it’s simple.

I love the combo of ham, gruyere and artichoke. You really can’t go wrong. This Applewood Quartered Ham is from Frick’s Quality Meats and it is delicious. I love that it’s presliced, it makes things so easy.
These ham, gruyere and artichoke pastry twists are pretty much perfect for any meal. Cut the dough a little thicker and you have a delicious breakfast pastry to snack on in the morning. Or make them thinner and dunk them in your soup at lunch. They are perfect as a pre-dinner appetizer as well. You can’t lose with these!

This is a win-win for me. Love to use puff pastry and make different appetizers. Ham (applewood -yes) and Gruyere is one thing but you have kicked it up with the artichokes. Great recipe to share with Fiesta Friday during the holiday season.
I honestly don’t use puff pastry enough, but I’m definitely going to use it more during the holidays!
yum! Thanks for sharing at the To Grandma’s House We Go DIY, Crafts, Recipes and More Link Party. I pinned this! Hope to have you join again next week!
What great appetizers for the holiday parties! Hope you are having a great week and thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday!
