Have leftover Puff-Pastry? Here is 2 Ideas for Leftover Puff-Pastry – one sweet and one savory recipe. Stop wasting the leftover Puff-Pastry !

2 Ideas for Leftover Puff-Pastry

Have you ever had leftover puff-pastry and weren’t sure how to use it up ? I have 2 ideas for leftover puff-pastry which you can try.

One savory and one sweet. Obviously you can also use these recipes using full rolls of puff pastry. (the recipe cards’ nutritional value is based on a full roll)

During the week, I usually make a daily list of groceries we need for that particular day and sometimes for the next day.

I, myself, only go to the supermarket on Friday afternoons. Therefore, either hubby or one of the kids will get my daily ingredients, which is usually fresh produce and meat.

The other day, I had a roll of Puff Pastry on the list. Normally, one standard roll is just enough for whatever I am making.

This particular day, hubby had come back with a double sized Puff-Pastry pack as there were no standard sizes in store and the double size was on special, anyway.

It would have been okay, if the pastry had come in two separate rolls, because then you can remove and defrost one and keep the other frozen. But this one was one huge roll and I had to defrost the whole thing.

I hate wasting, really I do, there are so many people going hungry and for me to throw away any food is just a sin. And I am not sure about you, but even when I only buy a roll (for a specific recipe), I usually have some leftover.

No matter how small a piece I have left, I always use it up in some or other way. And your main dish (which used the bulk of the puff-pastry), has to be baked anyhow – so just stick the extra pieces into the oven as well (separate baking sheet).

Just look at this flaky, sweet bite ! Delicious, even if it is only you having a small snack batch 😉

In the recipe cards below (note: two separate cards), you will notice that I mention a full roll of puff-pastry in each.

Simply adjust your ingredients to the size puff-pastry you have left. Although the quantities given are only a recommendation.
