Puff Pastry Spirals

Puff Pastry Spirals
A quick little hot, puff pastry appetizer, inspired by the classic Alsace tart.
 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
3 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
5 slices apple bacon, chopped, cooked and cooled
1/2 cup diced onion, caramelized in 1 teaspoon olive oil and cooled
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon water

Let puff pastry thaw in fridge.
Lay puff pastry out on a floured surface. Whisk egg yolk and water together and brush on puff pastry sheet.
Sprinkle the cheese over pastry to cover almost to the end. Do the same with the bacon and onion.
Roll the pastry tight and cut the roll into about 16 slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Put in fridge for about 30 minutes.
Bake pastry rolls in 400F. oven for 12-15 minutes or until light brown.
Best served warm.
Note: The cheese can be change out, along with a variety of herbs.
I also made some with another sheet using blue cheese, chopped Marcona almonds and a little drizzle of honey.
