  4. Whisk the egg yolk and brush it over the puff pastry.
  5. Cut the topped dough into squares with a pizza cutter or knife and sprinkle with sesame, poppy seeds, etc.
  6. After 20 minutes of baking, the puff pastry snack is baked and ready to serve.

That fits:

The Ham and Cheese Puff Pastry Snack can be enjoyed hot or cold - as a snack between meals, as part of a party buffet, or as a quick dinner. A fresh salad with a light dressing, such as balsamic or lemon vinaigrette, balances the savory and crispy puff pastry and rounds out the dish perfectly. Ingredients like cucumbers, peppers or radishes add freshness. Also suitable and delicious: grilled vegetables. A mix of zucchini, peppers, eggplant and mushrooms makes a hearty and healthy side dish. A mild, light beer or pilsner is particularly suitable as it is not too strong in taste and goes well with the light spiciness of the ham.
