Tuna & Sweetcorn Slice
We just wanted a light dinner tonight, as we have a verytasty pudding for after! I can never manage a proper meal and puddings in one sitting, so we tend to have soup/sandwiches/something light on Pudding Nights. This is very quick & simple to make, and the ingredients are also simple. It would make a very tasty lunch and would also be great as part of a buffet.
320g pack ready-rolled puff pastry
185g can tuna drained and flaked
325g can sweetcorn , drained
3 tbsp crème fraîche
50g cheddar , grated
a few chives , snipped to 1cm lengths
Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/ gas 7. Lay the pastry out on a baking sheet. Pinch up the edges to form a border, pressing firmly into the corners. Prick the centre all over with a fork and pop in the oven for 10-15 mins.
Meanwhile, mix the tuna and sweetcorn in a bowl and season.
Remove the pastry from the oven, pressing the centre down with the back of a fork, as it will have puffed up a bit. Spread the crème fraîche across centre, spoon the tuna mix on top, then sprinkle over the cheese. Bake for 10-15 mins more, until golden, puffed up and cooked though. Sprinkle with chives and cut into quarters
