The one with cheese and filo pastry

Last sunday I was craving for a little something to snack on. Preferably not too healthy, and easy to make. Oh, and something that didn't require a trip to the supermarket. As a cheese aficionado, I always have cheese in the fridge. I had some filo dough as well and thought these two might be a match made in heaven.


What you'll need:
  • 5 sheets of filo pastry
  • 10 chunks of cheese
  • 50 grams of butter
  • ketchup, or something else for dipping purposes


Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350°F. Cut the dough in half, and melt the butter slowly in a small pan. Remove the pan from the heat and brush the sheet of dough on both sides with the melted butter. Place a big chunk of cheese on top, and wrap it like it's a present.




Place them on a sheet of baking paper, and bake them on the middle shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until they are golden and crispy.


 


I served them with ketchup, but I can imagine they might taste good with a mixture of crème fraîche, chopped up garlic and fresh chives.

    1. Just plain cheese from the supermarket, not too old, not too young. Over here it's named 'belegen'. After some google searching, I think the English word used for it, is mature. But Paige said something about mozzarella, now I think I need to try that too!

  18. Marieken! I just ate almost the same dish this afternoon. Mine is however called cheese sticks. We use "lumpia wrapper" or egg wrappers to enclose the slices of cheese. After which, we deep fry the mini sticks. Your recipe is healthier because it was baked!
