Super Easy Cheese Myoms

Featured
Picture of Super Easy Cheese Myoms
I call them Cheese Myoms but some people call them cheese twists. They are the perfect snack and Ideal for any time not just party food.

Contrary to popular belief they are not difficult to make at all and can be made at home for a fraction of the price super markets / bakery's charge.

What you will need:

1 packet puff pastry - I used a 500g block of Jus-rol puff pastry which cost £1at the supermarket. This was sufficient to make 16 cheese myoms.

1 egg - used to glaze

Some cheese - does not need to be anything fancy, I used the cheapest supermarket own brand of basic cheddar. You can use as much or as little as you like.

Some black pepper - Again you can use as much or as little as you like.

Plain flour - just a small amount used when rolling out the pastry.

Baking tray - any flat metal tin which is oven safe will do.

Greaseproof  / baking paper - needs to be enough to cover your tray / tin

A bowl to beat your egg in and a knife to cut the pastry.

Ok lets get started.....

Step 1: Roll out the pastry, coat with beaten egg, cheese and black pepper

Right make sure you wash your hands and make sure if your working on a counter top clean the surface and dry it.  Think general purpose anti-bacterial spray and a damp cloth.

Sprinkle some plain flour on to the counter. Get your pastry block out of the fridge and roll it out. If you don't have a rolling pin you can use a glass / plastic bottle to do this, just make sure its clean :)

Beat your egg in a bowl and brush over the rolled out pastry. If you dont have brush, you can use clean fingers to apply the egg.

Then grate cheese all over the pastry and add some black pepper ontop of the cheese.

You should end up with something similar to the picture, however my picture was taken before I added the black pepper.

Nice and easy, just the way I like it! Thanks. I don't even have to print out this recipe as I think I can remember and since I love cheese it will be one I will give a try... hmmm the calories though may prevent frequent times it is made.

I just wanted to share something I discovered to make these even better. I made another batch yesterday and used some sundried tomato. I got the sundried tomato in a tub last time i was at the supermarket and it was just sitting in the fridge. OMG they were even better than the last lot. I rolled out the pastry block, then put the egg, cheese, black pepper on top as normal but I also added sundried tomato prior to folding in half. OK admittedly the cost of the sundried tomato was £2 (double the price of the pastry block), but if the extra cost can be justified it is totally worth it! :D

Wow those sound great! They also look like they'd be easy enough for my 7 year old grandsons to help with. I'm definitely adding these to my favorites. Thanks for sharing!
