Here’s another simple recipe to use with your puff pastry that you find in the freezer section of the grocery store. Make sure your puff pastry has been out of the freezer for at least an hour or in the refrigerator. Sprinkle the cheese or your choice onto your work surface…romano, parmesan, asiago. Place the puff pastry sheet onto the cheese and press so that the cheese pushes into the puff pastry dough. Then sprinkle the top side of the dough with cheese and Italian seasoning.
Next, you cut your puff pastry into strips. I cut them into 1″ strips. And, yes, I used a ruler and a pizza cutter. Made sense to me!
I then took the puff pastry strips and put them onto a skewer in a zig fashion so that the dough is a bit separated and is spread out over the top third of the skewer. Remember, the puff pastry “puffs” so you can leave some space in between. Of course, I forgot to take a photo of what this looked like on the skewers. Then you place the skewers onto a baking sheet and place in the oven for 10 to 16 minutes until they are nice and crispy and light brown.
I decided to display the breadsticks in a glass so that they looked unique and different. They tasted great. One thing I would do different would be to use a different type skewer or spray the skewer with cooking spray. The breadsticks were sometimes hard to slide off. Otherwise, they turned out great and were fun to eat.
Beware…they do make a mess when you eat them…it is just the flaky puff pastry!
p.s. I adapted this recipe from it’s original form.
