Cheese, tomato and herb twists


Following the success of my chocolate and cheese twists, I decided to make some more traditional cheese, tomato and herb twists. They are really easy to make and are quite addictive to eat! They are great as party foods or a snack. Best eaten fresh from the oven but still tasted good the next day. The smell of the cheese and herbs are amazing. You can make so many different variations - bacon and cheese, bacon cheese & tomato, ham and cheese, tomato and basil ..... whatever you fancy! 

If you live in the UK, Jus Rol pastry are offering a free Le Creuset stoneware dish with 4 tokens (1 pack = 1 token) plus p&p. A pretty good deal so I thought I'd share it with you (I have not been paid by them in any way, I just wanted to share the news in case you were interested) So this is my second roll of puff pastry, look out for at least 2 more recipes featuring puff or shortcrust pastry! 

I am entering these to Herbs on Saturday hosted by Karen from Lavender and Lovage



 roll out a sheet of puff pastry. Brush beaten egg on one side, turn it over and spread tomato puree on top as shown. 

 sprinkle liberally with grated cheese 

 add dried herbs and a little bit of cracked black pepper 

 slice into strips 

 twist and bake according to the packet instructions 


 enjoy!

  1. Brilliant idea for using puff - I always seem to have some lurking in the freezer but end up using it for the same old recipe. This will be something new, and they look yummy! :-)

    2. Goat's cheese, roasted tomato and caramelised onion tarts (a barefoot contessa recipe). My usual dinner party starter as it's quick, easy and very forgiving! ;-)

  2. Mmm... savory is even better (in my opinion) and I wonder if I couldn't make these with a marinara sauce and fresh herbs (instead of a paste)... You've got me thinking ;)
