A new morning, a new day and a new marathon.....ya you heard me right...I am back doing the blogging marathon which I seriously missed doing in the past few months. I am glad I am able to join in this time around with all the wonderful bloggers and their wonderful posts.
Guys please bear with me as I am still not fully prepared to do the marathon and I am still taking my own sweet time....but maybe I will be able to get thru this easily and mainly highly motivated!! lol...seriously!!
Anyways, this time around I chose the theme ' Cooking with 5 ingredients or less'. It might seem easy enough but believe me...its not that hard or easy to say!
If you think about Indian cooking and count all the ingredients, we are sure to go above limit! For this reason, Srivalli has allowed us to consider all the tempering ingredients including, salt, oil as one.
So with this I am starting with my Day 1 post ----- Easy Cheesy Parmesan Sticks.
This is an interesting snack for tea time or for kids, or just to munch on and much easier to make with regular puff pastry sheets.
I made it using a dusting of paprika, but if you want to make it more spicy, you can add a pinch of chilli powder and Indianize it with garam masala...what say!?
I haven't written any measurements, because, its better to make it to your taste and requirement.
1 pack of puff pastry ( 2 sheets)
paprika (as required)
Monterrey jack cheese, shredded (as required) or any other cheese you prefer
Parmesan cheese (as required), to sprinkle on top
egg wash or milk wash (egg wash makes it slightly crispy)
A cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or tin foil
Pre-heat oven to 400 degree F.
Thaw the puff pastry sheets according to directions on the box.
Slightly flour the area on which you will lay the puff pastry sheet out.
Sprinkle paprika all over the surface of the sheet.
Then give a generous sprinkle of the shredded cheese.
Carefully lay the other sheet on top of this sheet.
Brush the top with the egg wash or milk wash.
Sprinkle the washed top with shredded Parmesan cheese or powder.
Cut into desirable length and bake in the 400 degree oven, till golden brown.
Serve immediately or warm. I even liked then when they were cold :)
