These simple breadsticks come together in a matter of minutes, thanks to puff pastry. They are best the first day, as leftovers become much crumblier. We made these, from Food Network Magazine, for a neighborhood gathering and would definitely repeat them.
Everything Cheese Straws
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 tsp. water
2 Tbsp. everything bagel seasoning (find recipe here)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll each sheet of puff pastry to an 11-inch square on a lightly floured surface. Beat egg with water, and brush onto each puff pastry. Sprinkle each sheet with half the bagel seasoning and cheese. Press gently to adhere, and then cut each sheet into 1/2-inch wide strips. Twist the ends of each strip in opposite directions to curl it.
Place strips on baking sheets lined with parchment paper, and bake until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Makes approximately 30 breadsticks.
