Cheese & Mustard Straws

In our house, someone is always looking for something to nibble on!  Usually I will have sweet treats or leftover dessert from the previous night, but I must admit,  I rarely have something savory.
By chance, if you happen to find a salty treat in my kitchen, it will most likely be a packet of potato chips or maybe some Salti-crax biscuits {… but nothing to dip in or even a spread … }
There are the Cheese Gougeres which I sometimes make {Roy loves this}, but that takes a bit of time, not long… but these Cheese & Mustard straws are much quicker and just as addictive,  although Roy still prefers his Cheese Gougeres! – but he did not stop eating these straws and did say they were quite tasty…..

Cheese & Mustard Straws

1 Roll Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
2 TB Wholegrain Mustard
1 1/2 cups Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 Egg, beaten
1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) – Line one or two baking sheets with baking paper.
2.) Roll open the Puff Pastry – sprinkle the Cheddar Cheese over one half of the pastry and spread the Wholegrain Mustard over the other half.
3.) Take the side with the Mustard and flip it over the Cheese half.
4.) Use a rolling pin to roll out the pastry to almost the original size.
5.) Cut the pastry into 2.5cm (one inch) wide strips – place on the baking sheet – press the end slightly and start twisting – press the other end again – gently press down on the twisted strips.
6.) Once all is done – place in the refrigerator for 15 – 20 minutes.
7.) Remove from refrigerator – brush with the beaten Egg and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
These keep well in an airtight container for a few days {in case you want to make more than one batch at a time, because one batch will not last long!}
I hope you will enjoy these little savory treats.
Bye-bye now,
Linking up with these cool parties:
