Speck and cheese breadsticks: An easy aperitif recipe

    An aperitif snack to be prepared quickly

    5w ago


    Hello Tribers

    Here is another of my recipes with ready-made puff pastry. Perfect for an aperitif, these tasty breadsticks are easy to prepare.


    The ones you see in the picture. Two rectangular puff pastry rolls, a spun paste cheese (I used Provola: it's soft but not too soft) and speck cubes. You can of course replace the latter with bacon or ham. It depends on your tastes! Quantities? You know I weigh nothing, just go by eye. Here it can be done!


    Open out the first roll and spread it well with your hands. Then distribute the speck cubes. Take a grater with large holes and grate all your cheese.

    Spread the second roll with your hands and lay it on the first. Cover well.

    Now, you have to cut strips of about one centimetre, or one and a half centimetres. Do it with a sharp knife, or you risk letting the filling come out.

    Then roll up the strips as you see in the photo. Be careful, the more stuff you put in, the harder it will be. It just takes a little skill.

    As you can see in the photo, I prepared a saucer with extra virgin olive oil and a food brush. Not much need for it, but it helps colour the breadsticks as they cook.

    Have you preheated the oven to 200Β°? Well done. Cook the breadsticks for 15 minutes, then check them. If the oven does not cook evenly, reverse the position of the pan and bake again for 10 minutes. Check them. When they are golden, they are ready.

    They are excellent both warm and cold. Uncork the Prosecco e... buon appetito!

    • What kind of cheese is comparable? I’m in the USA and I don’t think my European grocer carries this cheese. It looks amazing

      • Difficult question... it's made with cow's milk, it's soft but not too soft, I'd tell you to try it with Scamorza, but I doubt you can find it. Really, I don't know what cheese they sell in the US, sorry.
