These mini pesto sandwiches are the ideal snack. Easy to make, quick to prepare and nice and warm and savory. Serve them with a glass of wine or beer.
For about 20 sandwiches:
- Puff pastry on a roll (about 40 by 24 cm)
- 1 egg
- 20 grams of pine nuts
- Large bunch of basil
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 dl olive oil
- 50 grams Parmesan cheese, grated
- Pepper and salt
Make the pesto to your own taste and add extra garlic or Parmesan cheese, for example. Then your pesto sandwiches will be even tastier. Yes, you can use pesto from a jar, but that is of course much less tasty…
You can make these pesto rolls as big or as small as you want. We divided the dough into 20 small rolls, but you can of course also make 10 larger rolls. Also delicious as breakfast or snack.

Make the pesto first
This is best done in a mortar, but it can also be done in the food processor or a larger chopper. Crush the pine nuts, grate the garlic clove on top and add the chopped basil leaves. Grind until you have a green paste.
Slowly add the olive oil and keep stirring until the pesto is a homogeneous mixture. Then add the Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Taste well to see if it is to your liking!
This is how you make these pesto sandwiches
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Place the sheet of puff pastry in front of you with the long side facing you. Brush the entire piece of dough with the pesto (a spatula is great for this). Also in the corners. Sprinkle some extra Parmesan cheese on top to taste and roll the dough into a tree trunk. Start on the short side so you have a short roll.
Tip: put the roll in the freezer for 10 minutes, then you can cut it into slices more easily.
Prepare two baking trays and line them with baking paper. Cut the roll of dough into slices one centimeter wide. Unless you want bigger sandwiches of course.
Place them on the baking sheets with plenty of space in between. Beat an egg with a small splash of water and brush the pesto bread with the beaten egg. Place in the hot oven for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
