Love It or Hate It - Marmite and Cheese Straws With a Twist!

Recipe by French Tart
READY IN: 25mins




  • Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
  • Divide the packet of puff pastry into four and use one portion at a time (popping the rest back in the fridge).
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll each portion to a rectangle measuring about 31cm x 21cm.
  • Spread the pastry with the marmite and then sprinkle with a quarter of the grated cheese.
  • Fold the pastry over lengthways and press firmly together.
  • Cut about eight 1cm wide strips then cut each strip in half (so the straws aren’t too long) and twist.
  • Arrange on baking sheets and chill for 10 minutes before cooking or freeze until ready to cook, then bake for 7-10 minutes, until golden brown and puffed up - the cheese will also have melted.
  • Trim the ends of the straws and carefully stand in glasses for a spectacular way of serving the straws.
  • Alternatively, freeze the uncooked straws in baking sheets lined with parchment and cook from frozen when your guests arrive - you may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time.
