Ham and Egg Hand Pies

1 package (about 18 Oz. Size) Frozen Puff Pastry
1 Tablespoon Butter
7 whole Eggs, Divided
1/2 teaspoons Dill
1/2 teaspoons Salt
1/2 teaspoons Pepper
1 cup Leftover Cooked Ham, Cubed
2 Tablespoons Flour, For Dusting
1/2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional)


Set the puff pastry out on the counter about 1 hour ahead of time to thaw. Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet and add 6 eggs and the dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the ham and toss until the eggs are soft set. Set aside. Lay out one sheet of puff pastry on a floured board and roll it out just a bit. Cut it into fourths. Scoop out 1/2 cup of the egg and ham mixture and place it into the corner of one of the puff pastry squares. If using cheese, sprinkle about a tablespoon of cheese on top of the filling. With a little water on your finger, moisten the edges of the puff pastry. Fold the pastry over the filling corner to corner, forming a triangle, and press to seal. Use a fork to seal the edges. Brush the outside of the hand pie with the remaining beaten egg. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F, bake the hand pies 4 at a time on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for about 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
