Savoury Pastry Twists!
These recipes are easily altered to suit your taste buds.
Simple yet yummy is what my kitchen is all about 🙂
1 x packet puff pastry
1 x jar vegemite
1 x 250gm bag grated cheese – can be low fat if you prefer
1 x jar pesto – whatever flavour you prefer
1 x 200gm packet diced bacon – or you can cut up your own flavour sandwich meat
2 x eggs
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
Lay out your large squares of puff pastry on a clean bench using 2 sheets per thickness.
On one square lightly spread vegemite then sprinkle with the grated cheese.
On another square sprinkle the meat then cheese
On another spread the pesto and sprinkle with cheese
this will give you 3 different flavours however you can be as creative as you like.
I generally stick to these as they are simple, we usually have all ingredients in the pantry or fridge and both hubby and toddler enjoy them.
Once you have your large square laid out with filling on top, cut them into 2.
They can be cut diagonally to give triangular shapes or you can cut top to bottom to give you long rectangular shapes – whatever you prefer.
Starting with the triangle pastry’s, take a corner from the longest side and slowly and gently roll the pastry until it resembles a rod like shape.
Once you have the rod like shape you can either leave like this and simply place on a greased baking tray or you can then roll the pastry into a snail like shape.
With the rectangular length, again roll either length ways to give you a longer rod or across ways for a shorter thicker rod like shape.
You could always cut the rectangular into squares and keep them small – more toddler like.
Once you have all your desired shapes – again you can be as creative as you like, place them onto your baking tray making sure that they are not touching each other to stop them sticking then using a fork lightly beat the eggs to create a wash.
Once you have lightly painted on the egg wash you can either sprinkle more grated cheese or leave as is and put in your preheated oven for approx 15-20minutes.
Once they are cooked, let them cool and enjoy!
This is a quick and yummy snack for everyone.
You could always use jam and make pin wheels or experiment and be creative.
Another favourite in my home is using diced olives, tomato paste and grated cheese! Delicious.
