Easy cheesy onion twists

    If you've got a spare 20 minutes, some hungry guests or just fancy a quick snack that you'll regret soon after your whole diet is ruined, then you're in the right place. Whip up some twists or roll em up into mini sausage rolls, these things are so easy to play around with. This recipe is also a great opportunity to swap around with the ingredients - add bacon, chilli or just play around with some herbs. The world is your oyster, but for now, let the easy cheesy fun begin.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 sheet puff pastry
    • 50g finely grated Cheddar cheese
    • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
    • cracked black pepper
    • a dusting of Parmesan cheese (optional)

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat your oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and spray a little oil on your oven tray to avoid sticking. If the pastry needs thawing then my best advice is to place a damp towel over it to reduce any drying. This goes for ready to go pastry as well, if its left open for longer than a few minutes make sure it's covered with a damp towel.
    2. Finely grate your Cheddar over the pastry sheet until the entire surface is covered (use more Cheddar if needed). Sprinkle over the onion, parsley and pepper. Flatten the surface with your hands to ensure a smooth(ish) finish, allowing you to twist and fold the pastry without losing all your filling.
    3. Slice your pastry into 1 inch thick strips and either twist or roll according to preference. Place in the oven for 15 minutes, then take out and sprinkle with a little Parmesan, if desired, and place back in the oven at 200 C / Gas 6 for another 5 minutes or until golden and crispy. If you have rolled the pastry then it may need a few more minutes to ensure the middle cooks through.
    4. Enjoy with your friends and favorite dips. Or just yourself and some ketchup. Either way, enjoy!


    If you wish to keep these twists vegetarian, omit the Parmesan, or use a vegetarian Parmesan alternative.
