If they are then prepared with ready-made puff pastry with a few simple moves you get a great finger food!

bacon cut into strips

For the dough: dough ingredients

For the filling:

  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 150 gr. of bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 50 gr. of grated parmesan cheese
  • 100 gr. of smoked provola cheese
  • 1 egg for brushing
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Halls

How to prepare

Step 1

First prepare the dough. I made my own pizza dough but another kind of dough or even ready-made puff pastry, the rectangular kind, is fine.

Step 2

Once the dough is prepared, we think about the filling. Clean the onion, slice it thinly and sauté it in a large frying pan with a little oil over low heat. Dice the
, pour it into the pan with the onion and let it brown, also add the finely sliced zucchini and cook them for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Then transfer it to a bowl and let it cool completely.

Step 3

Turn the risen dough upside down on a sheet of baking paper and roll it out with a rolling pin forming a rectangle, (if we use puff pastry the rectangle is already prepared) distribute the well-chilled filling on the pastry forming a compact and even layer and leaving all around an uncovered edge of a couple of cm.

Step 4

Sprinkle the layer of bacon and zucchini with the parmesan cheese and diced provolone; then roll the pastry from the longest side, helping yourself with the parchment paper to make a firm roll.

Seal the edge well lengthwise, pressing it down with your fingers, and brushing the seam several times with beaten egg.

Step 5

Cut the roll into logs about 1 cm thick with a sharp knife to make many even swirls.

Then place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180 for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the swirls are puffy and golden brown.
