Fun with leftovers: Puff pastry

I haven’t discussed leftovers in quite a while, like I used to back in the good old days such as here and here, so consider this the rekindling of an old friendship (with old food).

Speaking of which, Stilltasty is my new favourite website. It may just save my friend Miriam's life one day (she's been known to drink milk that's been sitting in a hot car for four days.)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Roll out one block of puff pastry (usually comes 2 to a package; if you can buy all-butter, all the better).

Add some crumbled goat cheese on top, a handful of black olives, slivers of red onion, and season with pinches of brown sugar, sea salt, black pepper and rosemary. Drizzle with good olive oil and pop it into the preheated oven until puffed and browned, about 22-25 minutes.

Cut into small squares for a rustic style snack, or bigger slices sided by salad for a chic lunch.
