What to Serve with the Cheese and Marmite Puff Pastry Twists?

Substitutions and Variations
- You could make this Vegan if you wish. Just ensure that you use vegan cheese and vegan-friendly milk for the glaze. You could also ensure that the pastry is vegan-friendly.
- You could add vegetables to these twists. Tomatoes work well, as well as mushrooms or peppers.
- Why not add some leftover meat to the cheese and marmite puff pastry twists? Things like shredded ham and chicken would be super tasty with the cheese and marmite.
- It would be super cheesy to add a few variations of cheese to the marmite. Maybe a stronger-tasting one or some shredded mozzarella to make it stringy. Kids love that.
- Add some tomato sauce or puree to the other half that you haven’t added marmite to for a different combination of flavor.
Recipe Tips and Tricks
- Make sure you brush the pastry with an egg glaze or milk wash. This helps to get that golden crunch on the pastry.
- Only cover half of the oblong of the pastry in marmite and cheese. You will fold over the other side to cover it.
- A nonstick baking tray means that the cheese and marmite puff pastry twists won’t stick to the sheet once they are cooked.
Can they be made ahead of time?
Yes, they can be made ahead of time. You can bake them a day or two beforehand, and they will last for around 4 days.
These are great appetizers, so if you do find you have a fair few things to cook on the day, then these could be made the day before to save time. You can also make a batch and freeze it for when you need them.
How do I store them?
You should store the cheese and marmite puff pastry twists in an airtight container in the fridge until you want them. Make sure they cool completely before adding them to the fridge.
Can they be frozen?
Yes, you can freeze them. You can freeze them raw so they are ready to bake when you need them, or freeze leftovers that have been cooked.
How can I reheat the Cheese and Marmite Puff Pastry Twists?
To reheat the cheese and marmite puff pastry twists, simply add them back to the oven for a few minutes. You can do this straight from the freezer on a low setting or let them defrost first and then reheat. They are best served warm.
