These are just a little something I knocked up with the left over pastry from the quiche. But I always used to make them when I was child. Growing up we didn’t have the well stocked kitchen that we have now. So what I would make all depended on what was available in the cupboards. We always seemed to have the stuff to make these though, plus they were my dad’s favourites. There is nothing better than a cheese straw coated in delicious dip. I think I shall be making them more often!
Pastry (see recipe here)
4 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
50g of grated cheddar
1 beaten egg

2. Preheat the oven to 2o0 degrees then put them on a baking paper lined tray
3. Brush the straws with beaten egg and sprinkle on the cheddar.
4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until they are golden brown and snap when broken. Serve with a delicious home-made dip.
