Frozen puff pastry has really become one of my favourite stock pile items. I seldom buy less than 10 at a time. It is versatile and easy to use, and you can fill it with almost anything.
As a lunch box filler it is more than amazing. My kids almost always come home with reports about comments made byb their friends about their eatables.
My favourite fillings are:
* Viennas wrapped in pastry
* Cheese and fried bacon
* Canned pie apples sprinkled with cinnamon sugar
* Custard filling
* Canned tuna and mayo
* Egg and mayo
* Chicken and mayo
The trick lies in your presentation, to avoid monotony and predictability I add one or more unusual items. Adding pickled cucumber to the tuna/ chicken mayo mix or red/ green peppers or adding finely grated carrot/ butternut. It adds color and is ultimately healthy. My favourite however must be apple added to any of the mayo mixes.
The best advise I can give a busy mom, is stock up on frozen puff pastry and let your imagination go! Your kids are bound to enjoy the unusual flavours and appreciate the effort.
