Puff pastry cheese sticks with sesame seeds, cheese and nigella seeds
This is one of those dishes that I had planned to make forever but that are really so simple that you just never get around to actually making it. And let’s be honest; you don’t really need a recipe for this but they are insanely delicious. We are making these today to go with the celeriac and wild mushroom soup we’re having as a starter. So much better than whatever storebought variety you can find that is either too hard or completely tasteless.
You can sprinkle whatever you like on the cheesesticks or soup sticks or whatever you want to call them. Sesame seeds, poppyseeds, nigella seeds, cheese or wrap them in bacon. It’s all good. In this case we (Esmee and I made these together) wrapped two thin strips around each other. It looks quite bad before baking but once you pop it in the oven it will magically come together and look delicious and fancy.
Enjoy boxing day!
