These sophisticated appetizers made of Gruyere, prosciutto and fresh sage never fail to receive compliments. They freeze well, so make a batch to have on hand for when guests drop in. —Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, VA

  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or deli ham


  1. In a small bowl, mix cheese and sage. Unfold puff pastry; cut each in half crosswise. Top each half with prosciutto and cheese mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges; roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Wrap tightly in waxed paper; refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Unwrap and cut each roll crosswise into sixteen 1/2-inch slices. Place cut side down on greased baking sheets. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. To Make Ahead: Rolls can be made 2 days in advance. Wrap rolls in waxed paper and place in a container; close tightly and store in the refrigerator.
