Cheese twists with Sobrassada Mallorquina

I like watching F1 with my photographer, but I must admit that my mind wanders around during it… Yesterday it wandered towards the sobrassada (Mallorca’s savoury delight) that was sitting in the fridge (freshly brought from Spain by a nice visitor). Cake is always good, but in this case I felt like having it as second serving…

Cheese twists with Sobrassada Mallorquina

  • Puff pastry
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Sobrassada
  • 1 egg

Crack one egg and whisk with a tablespoon of water. Unfold the puff pastry and roll thinly. Brush the pastry with egg and spread sobrassada over half of it, then sprinkle some cheese.

Fold the puff pastry to cover the cheese and press gently to seal. Brush the top with more egg, cut in thin stripes and twist each one from the ends. Bake 10 minutes at 200 °C or until lightly browned.

Allow it to cool slightly before eating (if you can!)
