Candy Cane Bacon Cheese Straws

 Guest Posting Today is Christina from
Mama's High Strung blog!



Presenting! Store-bought puff pastry dough... The Alice in Wonderland of the bread world! Small or big…and everything in between, just like Alice!

Holiday Bacon Cheese Straws Mama's High Strung Want a little nibble for your tea party? Make these Bacon Cheese Straws just 3 or 4 inches in size. Want something impressive to go across a salad plate? Twist and stretch these until they’re almost a foot long!

The secret is the store-bought puff-pastry dough.

It’s very forgiving and can easily be twisted and shaped. Of course, it’s the Parmesan cheese and bacon that gives these straws their amazing flavor, but you are the one who creates the enchantment.
I added a little “hook” on the end to make them look like candy canes... something deliciously festive. Best part: only three ingredients! Big or small…who needs a pill to do either when you’ve got these on your plate? Alice would agree!

Holiday Bacon Cheese Straws
prep: 20 minutes
bake: 15 minutes

you’ll need...
6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped (about ½ cup)
¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 sheet or ½ package (17.03 ounces) puff pastry dough, thawed

let’s get to it...

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut another piece of parchment paper the same size and set aside. Stagger oven racks so that they are in the middle of the oven. Heat oven to 425°F.

Sprinkle half of the bacon and cheese on a large cutting board. Place 1 sheet of puff pastry on top of the bacon and cheese. Sprinkle the rest of the bacon on top of the sheet of puff pastry. Place the reserved piece of parchment paper on top. Roll the dough with a rolling pin so that the cheese and bacon are embedded in the dough. The dough should be about ¼-inch thick.

Cut the dough into long thin strips, either horizontally or vertically, depending on the length you want. Gently hold the dough at both ends and twist. Place on one of the parchment-lined baking sheets. Make a hook (to resemble a candy cane) on the top of the dough and press it onto the parchment paper (this will hold the twist). Repeat until all of the dough is twisted and formed on baking sheets.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and store in a re-sealable plastic bag.
