Recipe: Goat’s Cheese Phyllo Sticks

South African Mommy Blogger

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
