How to Make Cheese and chorizo twists
less than 30 mins
10 to 30 mins
Makes 15 twists
- 375g/13oz ready-rolled puff pastry
- 100g/3½oz manchego
- 12 chorizo
- 1 tsp dried red chilli
- 1 free-range egg
Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7.
Unroll the pastry onto a baking tray with the longest edge of the pastry facing you.
Scatter the manchego over the right-hand half of the pastry. Top the cheese with 10–12 slices of chorizo and sprinkle with chilli flakes. Fold over the remaining pastry and flatten with your hands.
Turn the pastry 45 degrees so it sits in the middle of the baking paper. Lightly roll with a rolling pin to seal.
Cut the pastry into 1cm/½in pieces and twist 4–5 times. Brush the twists with the beaten egg and bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes, or until risen and golden.
Remove from the oven and set aside to cool on a wire rack.
