3040 Min

Filled puff pastry parcels don't always have to be sweet, as this tasty recipe proves. The delicious combination of cabbage and bacon is enhanced with spices and a fresh herb dip.

Ingredients 4 Portions


  1. 1

    Fry the diced pancetta in a pan for a while so that it releases its full flavor.

  2. 2

    Finely slice the white cabbage and season with a generous amount of salt. Steep the cabbage for a couple of minutes in a fine sieve then squeeze. Then mix with the fried diced pancetta and stir in the crème fraîche. Then season with salt, pepper, paprika and caraway and mix thoroughly.

  3. 3

    Roll the puff pastry out onto a baking tray and divide into small squares. Put some of the white cabbage mixture in the middle of each square and then shape into small parcels. Coat the parcels with a little milk so they brown nicely.

  4. 4

    Bake the parcels in the oven for around 20 minutes at 200°C (392°F). Prepare the dip while the parcels are baking.

  5. 5

    To make the dip: Combine the crème fraîche, mustard, mayonnaise, marjoram, oregano, garlic powder and fresh chives. Season with more salt and pepper if required.

  6. 6

    Serve the parcels with the dip and enjoy.
