I am still a child at heart…. I love recipes that appeal to the little one in me… so when I stumbled across this recipe in the BBC Good Food Magazine (September 2009 Issue)… in the *cooking with Auntie Sara* section… I knew I had to give it a go!
Their recipe said Marmite…but I am a Bovril girl…. and nothing you can say can make me change that!
For those of you who are going “Bovril, WTF is that?”… it is a thick, salty & meaty extract developed by a genius (in my humble opinion) from the UK… and can be used for spreading on toast, making stock or flavouring dishes (some people add a spoon to a cup of boiling water and call it *soup*… of this, I don’t approve :))
Cheese & Bovril Twists
50g cheddar cheese, grated
1 ready to use sheet of puff pastry
2 teaspoons of Bovril (if you don’t like Bovril or Marmite, they suggest trying it with Mustard)
- spread the Bovril over the pastry
- Drizzle the cheese over the top
- cut into equal strips
- Bake for 15minutes at 200C (or until golden)
- Leave for about 5minutes on the tray to firm up and then lift onto a cooling rack
