Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


The only way to survive this recipe is making it and then letting the kids eating it all. If you try one twist you will not be able to stop eating all the others, and yes you will regret it.

You need:
- a sheet of puff pastry
- a handful of grated cheddar cheese
- 50 gr of serrano or parma ham chopped very thinly (we did this in a food processor)
- 1 egg beaten

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees. Sprinkle the cheese and ham on top of the puff pastry. Fold it in half and then in half again. Roll it out to make a rectangle (with all the ham and cheese into the pastry) Cut the rectangle into strips (1 cm width more or less) Twist the strips and put them onto an oven tray lined with baking parchment. Paint the strips with the beaten egg and bake for 18-20 minutes (until golden).

The children like making these. They messed up the twisting a few times but the shape does not matter - in fact you can forget the twisting altogether if you do not have time.
