For the Twists

  • 3 sheets fresh puff pastry
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup mixed finely grated cheeses of your choice
  • 8 pieces streaky bacon American bacon
  • Cooking spray

For the Sugar Coating

  • 1/2 cup soft brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
  2. Use a deep pan, lined with foil, and a wire rack insert on top
  3. Grease wire rack well with cooking spray
  4. In a pie dish, mix brown sugar, rosemary, salt and pepper -set aside
  5. On a cutting board, place your three puff pastry sheets down. I bought pre-made fresh puff pastry that came in little 5x6ish squares.
  6. Beat your egg in a little saucer and with a brush, coat the top of your three puff pastry sheets
  7. Sprinkle your grated cheese of choice, on top and lightly press your cheese into the puff pastry with your hand. (not too hard, just enough to stick)
  8. Using a pizza cutter, cut 1/2 inch strips
  9. Cut your streaky bacon down the middle with scissors
  10. Lay one strip of bacon on top of one strip of your cheesy puff pastry, twist gently
  11. Roll your twist in your brown sugar coating, make sure it's completely covered
  12. Set on top of wire rack inside your pan
  13. Repeat until all twists are coated
  14. Bake for 20-30 minutes (oven times vary, make sure it doesn't burn)
