Recipe by Chef John
"These super-simple breadsticks are easy, cheesy, and there's no dough to make because we're going to use frozen puff pastry for this. They're very cool for entertaining."
Watch video tips and tricks
1/2 (17.5 ounce) package
frozen puff pastry
olive oil (preferably drained from a tin of anchovies)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper, or to taste
shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese
freshly shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided
Holy COW!!!! These were fantastic. I appreciated the video to help me learn how to twist these. You're right, Chef John, they don't suck. :)
So easy And really great with parma ham
I made this today, the results were great. However, my sticks were very different. I measured out 1/4 cup of grated cheese which is 2 oz.
I had WAY more cheese than the video showed, and there was no way I could have rolled them that way. I had to roll them with the cheese INSIDE instead of outside, which was challenging. However, they turned out just great!! The insides are very cheesy, and the outsides have some nice crunchy cheese all up and down them.
Very very good!!!! Never had better!
easy party pleaser
so easy. and i use egg yolk to give a good colour at the surface. and only use cheddar cheese because i only have cheddar at home.
