How to grate cheese
Nutrition per serving
- 70 g cheddar cheese (grated)
- 1 puff pastry sheet
- cayenne pepper (for sprinkling)
Sprinkle half the cheese onto a work surface and lay a sheet of puff pastry over the top. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the puff pastry. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper over the whole sheet, then roll the pastry into a small log.
- bench scraper
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
Use a bench scraper or knife to slice the roll into smaller pieces. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, then gently unroll each piece and twist both ends in opposite directions to create a twisted cheese straw. Repeat with all cheese straws.
Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Bake cheese straws for approx. 20 min., or until straws are dry to the touch and golden brown all over. Remove and let cool a bit before serving. Enjoy warm or at room temperature!
