Gruyere and Herb Puff Pastry Twists

Twists! Made out of PUFF PASTRY. Is this heaven? Me thinks yes.

Not only are we snacking on puff pastry twists, they’re stuffed with gruyere cheese and garden herbs and Everything Bagel seasoning. Brunch just got a facelift.

And you know what, these don’t even have to be brunch focused. Let’s call them an anytime snack. The kids are home all summer. We deserve it.

Let us peepeth.

Embarrassingly simple.

We’ll thaw that puff pastry sheet for 45 minutes while we preheat the oven, grate cheese and chop herbs. Nothing to it.

I yanked out some parsley, basil and oregano, but truly anything works here. Just chop up something green in your garden and call it. (just not Foxglove!)

I have a reel on this, but all we do is evenly layer the grated cheese and herbs over the puff pastry. If you make a mess doing this, even better.

Then we cut the whole thing in half, then cut the halves into smaller strips. Which we then turn into twists. See how I’m twisting? Like that. Just twist it and press the ends together to make them stick. If any cheese falls out, you’re still a good person. Just stuff it back in with your blistered soul.

See how we did?! We brushed with the egg wash and sprinkled the Everything Bagel seasoning over it. Go light or go heavy. This is all you.

We’ll violently throw it into an oven for like, 15 minutes. And then we get this…


Puffed, golden savory, cheesy, herby, just perfect. The cheese may or may not ooze. Either way you’ll still get so.much.happiness out of it it won’t even matter.

Brunchy. Breakfasty. Summer snacky. Party-y. Anything goes.

Just get these in your mouth.

    great innovation, have been buying a generic cheddar based twist at Trader Joe's by default, Gruyere is better as is home made, so thank you!

    *drooling* In the unlikely event that these are not snarfed up immediately upon serving, how would you recommend they be stored?

    What would be a good dipping sauce for these?
