Easy

Ingredients
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting work surface
  • One 13-ounce package puff pastry
  • 1 tablespoon prepared English mustard
  • 14 strips good-quality streaky bacon
  • 3 ounces mature Cheddar, grated
  • 1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll the puff pastry into a large rectangle, 1/4-inch-thick.

  • Rotate the pastry so that the longer side is facing you. Spread the mustard evenly over the pastry. Lay the bacon slices on the pastry, long side facing you, leaving a small gap in between each slice. Trim any messy edges that spill over the puff pastry, to neaten the rectangle into a straighter edge. Sprinkle the Cheddar over the bacon. Cut in between each slice to form individual pastry-bacon strips.

  • Carefully twist each strip 4 or 5 times, so it looks like a curly straw. Place on the prepared baking sheet and brush with beaten egg. Chill in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Remove the twists from the fridge and brush a second time with beaten egg. Bake until the pastry is well risen and golden-brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
