  • 150 g smoked meat style smoked turkey breast, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. (30 ml) unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp. (15 ml) honey
  • 2 tbsp. (30 ml) old-fashioned grainy mustard
  • ½ tsp. (2.5 ml) dried thyme
  • 1 sheet flaky pastry crust (store bought)
  • 2 Cortland apples, sliced thin
  • ½ cup (125 ml) Ermite cheese, crumbled
  • 6-7 pecans, crushed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp. (15 ml) water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Place butter, honey and thyme into a small saucepan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Cook 5 minutes, add half the mustard, mix well, remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Cut the turkey slices into 4 pieces. Set aside.
  4. Unroll the pastry, cut into 4 equal squares and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. With the point of a paring knife, lightly score around the perimeter of each square to form a border about 1.25 cm (½ in.) wide. Spread remaining mustard within the confines of the square.
  6. Arrange apple and turkey slices, alternating them, in a fan pattern.
  7. Spread the fans with the honey-butter mixture and sprinkle with the crumbled Ermite cheese, then with the pecans.
  8. Beat the egg with the water and spread around the border of each square.
  9. Bake 20 minutes or until pastries are well browned.
  10. Serve immediately, accompanied by a salad with bitter lettuce.
