Bacon Wrapped Puff Pastry Twists

Jan 16, 2023 | Appetizers, Food

Happy Wednesday everyone!  These Bacon Wrapped Puff Pastry Twists are incredible!  Puff Pastry intertwined with thick salty bacon strips, smothered in egg, cheese, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, garlic powder, then coated with more egg, cheese, and brown sugar.  These twists are both salty, cheesy, and sweet plus are a perfect appetizer for any meal!  Mr. TAL said they are blog worthy so I’ve got to put this out to you and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Not only is this recipe delicious, it is very easy to make.  My only problem was that I was impatient with how long it took to bake.  Although, I kept rotating the pan, it literally took 50 minutes to bake.  But once they came out of the oven and we sunk our teeth into a twist, I was pleasantly surprised and the 50 minute wait was worth it!

I always make sure I pre-heat my oven first.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  It’s best to line your baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top.  This way your appetizer is not sitting in the grease that drains from the bacon and allows the twist to get crispy.  I did not have a wire rack so what I did as a short cut was scrunch up the aluminum foil on the sheet pan and then laid the twists on top of that.
Note:  To keep this appetizer from sticking to the aluminum foil, I sprayed the foil with PAM cooking spray.

It is also important for your puff pastry to be thawed at room temperature.  It’s not fun working with frozen or half thawed sheets as they will break apart.  I used one box of pastry and doubled up on my sheets for each twist which equalled 24 sheets and 12 slices of bacon.  To make sure my pastry sheets did not stick to my counter, I lightly dusted my workspace with flour.  As the pastry was thawing, I combined the cayenne pepper, nutmeg, brown sugar, garlic powder, and cheese and set aside.  I added a dash of salt and pepper to the mixture but didn’t overdo it with salt because the bacon is so salty.

Then it was time to assemble the twists.  Take out your bacon and separate into strips.  Lay out your pastry in large sheets, baste the bottom sheet with egg (whipped), add your cheese mixture, cover with two more sheets and cut into 12 inch long strips.  Hold each strip with a piece of bacon and twist until almost tight.  I placed each twist on the foil approximately 2 inches apart, basted them with the rest of the egg which I added 2 tbsps of milk, and topped with brown sugar and more cheese.  I did not measure the brown sugar or cheese so it’s up to you how much you want to sprinkle on top.  I personally went heavy on the sprinkle 🙂

These twists would taste great with a sour cream and chive dip or keep it sweet by drizzling honey and maple syrup on them.  Yummmm!
