Ham and Cheese

Fancy Pants Ham and Cheese Sandwiches! you know you want one. I love it when a person has a common job, but gives it a big name...like for instance: Sanitation Engineer-garbage man, Freight Relocation Specialist-Trucker, Clear Vision Specialist-window cleaner ...you get the gist. So let me introduce you to tonight's special...Prosciutto and Gruyere en Croute or...
1 package puff pastry
8 oz Gruyere cheese, grated
8 oz prosciutto ham
2 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 egg
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lay the puff pastry out and cut into 2 inch circles with a biscuit cutter. Lay out another sheet and cut an equal amount of 2 in circles-but this time re cut the 2 inch circles with a 1 inch circle to create a thin circle. Place that circle on the 2 inch circle. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Beat the egg and brush the pastry with it. Bake for 15 minutes. On another baking sheet, lined with paper, lay out the prosciutto and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees until crisp. Slightly cool and break up. Mix the prosciutto with the cheese and parsley. Fill the little cup with the cheese mixture. Return to oven until melted, serve immediately.
