This tray of deliciousness is a firm favourite in my household. I serve this as a starter.
What exactly is it? Phyllo pastry with goat’s cheese. My mouth waters just typing this.
I first had these back in May 2014 at a BBC Upfront after interviewing the foodie genius, Rachel Khoo*. She made these as part of her food demo and I’ve been making this ever since.
I won’t lie, it’s my go-to starter for entertaining. I can never make enough, they never last.
What you’ll need:
- Oven trays
- Pastry brush
- Spray ‘n Cook
- Phyllo pastry
- Goat’s cheese
- Fresh thyme
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- Allow the phyllo pastry to thaw.
- Set your oven to 180 degrees.
- Spray your baking tray with Spray ‘n Cook.
- Melt the butter in a mug for 20 seconds.
- Brush the phyllo pastry with butter.
- Crumble the goat’s cheese at the top of the phyllo pastry parchment.
- Remember to remove the leaves off the sprigs. Sprinkle fresh thyme on top on the cheese.
- Drizzle honey over the goat’s cheese.
- Start to roll the phyllo pastry. If it’s dry, brush more melted butter.
- Once, you’ve rolled it. Place the phyllo cheese sticks on the tray.
- Bake the phyllo cheese sticks for 15 to 20 minutes until the phyllo is golden and crispy.
