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.
oh yuuum! i love everything with pastry .. might have to try this recipe soon:)ReplyDelete
This was my second time with the filo, I will be making more with it!Delete
Looks pretty easy to make! I would fill it with somethings else, but i will give it a try.ReplyDelete
Let me know if you experiment with it! I always love recipes :-)Delete
Ooooh, these sound kind of like mozzarella sticks, but more sophisticated. Tasty!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up with us!
You're welcome, now I want mozzarella sticks...Delete
they look good....great, now I'm hungry again. I need to skip food posts while dieting. lolReplyDelete
Every now and then you just need to treat yourself Debbi!Delete
Whoa! Look at that cheesy goodness, and easy to make too:) Thanks for sharing, Marieken. Who cares if it's not the healthiest? heheReplyDelete
Not me! ;-)Delete
Sinful...I love it! Great snack...going to check out the other party snacks!ReplyDelete
Sinful can be so good!Delete
This is pretty ingenious! And, really, melted cheese fulfills several of my fantasies!ReplyDelete
Mine too! I like cheese on everything, I really don't care what's underneath!Delete
Mmmm Yummmmy!! So easy and unhealthy!! ;-o)ReplyDelete
Aren't those the best?Delete
These look amazing!ReplyDelete
Oh goodness, this looks just amazing. My mouth is literally watering looking at those photos!ReplyDelete
looks yum:) ...pinning to try later!ReplyDelete
Let me know if you tried them, love to hear if you like them!Delete
This is very yummy! I like the crispy outside and soft inside :)ReplyDelete
Which cheese did you use?
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!Delete
YUM...what a tasty snack! And I love that it uses items most of us have on hand!ReplyDelete
I like those too! Recipes with lots of ingredients always scare me!Delete
this looks really simple & yummy, might give it a try! it's funny how creative we get when we're hungry.ReplyDelete
Yes it is!Delete
These look awesome! I love that they're baked, not fried, and that I have all the ingredients on hand. Super cool!ReplyDelete
I love baking things, I've never fried anything!Delete
These look delicious! Definitely not one for the diet but I bet they're so satisfying. I would definitley dip these in some sweet chilli sauce! xxReplyDelete
Chili sauce sounds good, I need to remember that next time I go to the supermarket.Delete
Oh yum, this looks absolutely scrumptious!!ReplyDelete
So simple and delicious! I love this kind of recipe. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
You're welcome, I love thinking up easy recipes.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
What kind of cheese was used for the cheesesticks?Delete
We use the typical cheddar cheese :)Delete
swooning.what an awesome idea. oh my oh my, i must give this a try!ReplyDelete
I think you would like it :-) And it so easy to make, not unimportant.Delete
