Delectable party perfect cheese and bacon straws made easy with frozen puff pastry available in the freezer section of most grocery stores.  These perfectly seasoned crisp pastry appetizers are perfect for your next party or shindig.


  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 slices bacon crispy cooked and chopped fine
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg beaten


  1. Stir together chili powder, cumin, onion powder and garlic powder in small bowl. Add cooked bacon, Parmesan and cheddar cheese to bowl and toss to coat.
  2. Lightly flour rolling area and roll puff pastry out to 12 x 16 inch rectangle. Brush the pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle with 1/2 of the spice/bacon/cheese mixture. Fold in half creating an 12 x 8 inch rectangle. Roll the square back out to a 12 x 16 inch rectangle. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle the remaining spice/bacon/ cheese mixture over the top. Cut the rectangle in half creating two 12 x 8 inch rectangles.  Cut each rectangle into 3/4 inch strips longways. After cutting both rectangles you will have 32 strips that are about 8 inches long.
  3. Place strips on parchment lined baking sheets, a few inches apart. Twist ends of strips to create a spiral. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until they are crispy and golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the cookie sheets. .


Don’t get to wrapped up in the measurement part. Sometimes you just have to wing it.
