Meals don't have to be expensive or complicated to feel lavish, and sometimes just the addition of one delectable dish or side will make the most simple faire special.
Why not channel your inner "Julia Child" and mix up these fabulous spicy cheese breadsticks to serve with this evening's meal ~ Enjoy!
Flaky, hot and buttery bread sticks with little bits of melting cheese.
1 Sheet Puff Pastry (A Box Typically Contains 2 Sheets)
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
1 Tablespoon Poppy Seeds
1 teaspoon Fennel Seeds
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
½ cups Finely Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Flour, For Rolling Out Dough
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Prepare a sheetpan with parchment or a Silpat. On a lightly floured surface,
roll out the sheet of puff pastry until it is quite thin. In a small bowl, mix together
all of the seeds and spices. Sprinkle them over the dough. Using a rolling pin,
roll them into the dough. Sprinkle the cheese over the dough. Roll the cheese into
the dough. Slice the dough into 8 even strips. Twist from both ends of each
dough strip so that the dough spirals into a breadstick. Lay them on the lined
sheetpan. Bake the breadsticks for 15 minutes until golden.
Let cool for a moment then transfer to a tall glass and fan out to serve.
