  • 60 g good quality ham
  • 50 g Gruyere cheese or cheddar, sliced or grated
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard optional


  • Preheat the oven to 355F / 180C / 160 fan.
  • Place the mozzarella in a heat proof bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 60 seconds. Stir and heat for a further 20 - 30 seconds until fully melted. Careful not to burn.
  • Add the sunflower seed flour (or sesame seed flour) and mix with a spatula to combine into a ball. You may need to use your hands and knead a bit too. If the dough gets too cold at any point simply pop back in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm.
  • Roll the dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper or a silicone mat and a sheet of grease-proof. Roll into an oblong shape.
  • Place the ham in the centre and top with cheese and mustard.
  • Fold the edges of the dough over to form a pocket. Turn the pocket over so the seal is at the bottom.
  • Piece two tiny air holes in the top with a sharp knife. Not too big or the cheese will escape!
  • Place the greaseproof paper with the hot pocket onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for around 12 - 15 minutes or until golden on top.
  • Slice in half and enjoy. Option to serve with mustard mayonnaise or a nice fresh salad.
