Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for Ham Hock and Spinach Parcels (Gluten & Dairy Free).
Hope you are all having a good week. I’m off from work and while like everyone else I would rather be away on holiday I’m making the most of my time at home. I’m tidying out all the books, CDs and DVDs I haven’t touched in years, starting my Christmas shopping and taking a bit of time to update my website.
I’ve finished my website plan for November and I hope you find some exciting new recipes to try out. I’ve been posting recipes for six years now but I haven’t ran out of inspiration yet. I’ve also just reached 35,000 followers on Facebook – while number of followers shouldn’t matter it is nice to know you find the content I post useful.
Today’s recipe is for these lovely ham hock and spinach puff pies. You can easily buy gluten and dairy free puff pastry sheets in the supermarket nowadays which makes recipes like this much easier. I’ve made a dairy free creamy sauce and stirred through shredded ham hock and spinach.
