Vol-au-vent with cream cheese and tuna

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Prep. time: 10 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

Yield: 6 portions


  • 1 package of Vol-au-vent, normally with 6 pieces (if you don’t have it you can use 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry)
  • 1 canned tuna – 130 gr net
  • 150 gr of cream cheese


Before start baking the vol-au-vent, remove the cream cheese from the fridge to reach room temperature

  1. Bake the vol-au-vent following what is written in the packaging (I baked them for 15 minutes at 165°)
  2. Meanwhile mix the cheese and tuna in a bowl with a fork
  3. Remove the inner circle (the hat) of each peace
  4. Stuff each vol-au-vent with tuna cheese spread
  5. You can add the cap on top of the composition to make it look nicer

Make your own vol-au-vent


  • 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry
  • 1 beaten egg yolk
  • Rounded cookie cutter 6 and 8 cm or 8 and 10 cm


  1. Carefully unfold or unroll the puff on your counter
  2. Cut out 12 pieces of the dough using the bigger rounded cookie cutters
  3. Brushed one side of 6 circles lightly with egg wash 
  4. Stacked the other 6 rounded circle high on top of the egg washed pieces
  5. Make an inner circle on the rounded pieces using the small rounded cookie cutter
  6. Bake for at least 15 mins or until  browning off at 180°
  7. When ready use a small sharp knife to remove the inner circle and to make room for your filling
