Cheese and Ham Pies
Recipe type: Entree
Cheese and Ham Pies is a Norwegian food recipe for making a pie similar to a pirogi or empanada.
  • 150ml lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 7g fast-action dried yeast
  • 450g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 170ml oz milk
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 35g butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oil, for greasing the tray
  • 1 egg, beaten, for glazing and sealing
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 200g boiled, smoked ham, chopped
  • 100g cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  1. First make your starter mixture for the dough. Pour the lukewarm water into a bowl, add the sugar and yeast, then stir in 100g of the flour. Mix well and leave the mixture to rise for 2–3 hours.
  2. Add the milk, salt, the rest of the flour, and the butter and egg then knead the mixture into a relatively firm dough. Leave it to rise for 2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and cook gently for about five minutes until translucent. Add the garlic and continue to cook for another two minutes. Stir in the ham, cheese, parsley and caraway seeds, then season to taste and set aside to cool.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  5. Roll out the dough thinly on a floured surface and cut out 12 small circles. Use a glass if you don’t have a pastry cutter. Place a spoonful of filling on to one half of a pastry circle, then brush the edges with the beaten egg, and fold the pastry over to enclose the filling. Squeeze the edges together and brush again with the beaten egg. Fill the rest of the circles in the same way.
  6. Place the pies on a greased baking tray and bake them for 12–15 minutes until golden.
