This actually happened by accident this morning. I was making the cheese straws and salsa for a quick lunch. As I was cutting the strips for the cheese straws, I thought that it would be easy to make use of the ‘trimmings’ in this way (rather than rolling them all out again). I thought they could be ‘cheesy bits’ and that instantly made me think of Dodo, Hilda’s friend in Rumpole of the Bailey.
Dodo is famous for her cheesy bits and Hilda hopes to serve them at Chambers parties (always misguidedly expecting Rumpole to be made Head of Chambers).
Perhaps Dodo would like to come to dinner and we could swap recipes.
Left over pieces of puff pastry
Make pastry into a ball and press out roughly.
Grate some cheese over the top.
Ball up the pastry again and knead the cheese through.
Roll out flat on a lightly floured surface.
Cut into strips and roll each one up to make a small spiral. Squash the top and place on a baking tray.
Cook in oven at Gas 7/ 225C/450F for about 7 – 10 minutes.
