This crocodile seems to be a vegetarian
Total time: 30 minutes
Prep time: 30 minutes
Ingredients for 6 people
3 cups of frozen peas & carrots
1 1/2 cups of ham, diced
3 tbsp of ricotta cheese
2 rectangular puff pastries
2 egg yolks
1 slice of swiss cheese
salt & pepper
Mix the carrots and peas with the diced ham, ricotta, salt, and pepper and refrigerate.
Stick the two puff pastry sheets together and spread the pea mixture in a long strip in the middle. Cut parallel strips diagonally into the dough on both sides of the peas. Fold these strips over the peas, alternating left and right.
Cut one end of the dough into 5 strips and fold them over each other on one side to form a tail. Remove 2 triangles to the left and right of the other end and fold the rest into a long triangle to make the crocodile's mouth. Cut discs from the off-cuts to make the eyes and legs. Make scissor cuts in the mouth to make the teeth and on top to make scales.
Place on the baking tray lined with parchment paper, brush with egg yolk, and bake for 25 minutes at 350 °F. Remove from the oven, finish the eyes with discs of swiss cheese and peas, cut into pieces, and enjoy!
