Cheese & pickle straws

Cheese and pickle twirls


The cheese & pickle combo is an obvious favourite in the United Kingdom. These pastry twists are super scrumptious and very easy to make. Whip up a huge batch before your party and serve with a range of condiments – but make sure you have a big supply of HP brown sauce.

Time: 15 mins   /   Serves: 8   /   DIFFICULTY: Easy

375g ready-rolled puff pastry sheet
6 tablespoons Branston small chunk pickle
120g Cheddar cheese, grated
1 medium egg
A sprinkling of sesame seeds
  • 1.

    Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.

    Unroll the pastry onto your work surface, then cover half with the Branston pickle and cheese. Fold the other half over and press down. Brush the beaten egg over the top and sprinkle sesame seeds all over.

  • 2.

    Cut the filled pastry into strips roughly 1.5cm wide and then twist. Place onto a lined baking sheet.

    Bake for 15 minutes, then cool on a wire rack before serving (with lots of brown sauce!)
