I decided to make some cheese straws because who doesn't love cheese straws only to figure out if you not making your own puff pastry its such a quick and easy treat , now I know perhaps its cheating not making my own puff pastry and I promise I will do my best to make cheese straws from scratch but I thought let me share this quick and easy recipe with you in case you have a party and need a quick snack that tastes great.
What you need:
- 1 egg
- ready made puff pastry
- finally grated cheese
- spices of choice I chose sage , cayenne pepper, sea salt , pepper and fresh herbs.
Mix the herbs , seasoning and mustard with the grated cheese then roll or press the grated cheese mixture on the ready made puff pastry.
Cut them into desired length , I chose to slice them from one length to the other and then half them as seen below. At this point you need to preheat your oven to about 180
Twist them and then whisk the egg in a bowl , place parchment paper on a tray either lightly oil it or use a non stick spray as I did and place the twisted puff pastry on the tray.
Brush the egg over the puff pastry bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden .
and ta daaaaa! you have delicious cheese straws.
