Having people over this weekend? These Puff Pastry Bacon Twists will make it a game day to remember! Make them at home:


¼ cup packed light brown sugar
½ of a 500g package Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
9 slices uncooked Lynca Meats Streaky Bacon
3 tablespoons grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Heat the oven to 200°C. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle half the brown sugar on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Sprinkle the pastry with the remaining brown sugar. Roll the pastry sheet into a 35 x 25 cm rectangle. Cut the pastry sheet in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into 18 (9/10 cm wide) strips, making 36.
  3. Cut the bacon slices in half lengthwise, then crosswise, making 36 strips.
  4. Place 1 bacon strip on each pastry strip. Twist the pastry and bacon together and place on the baking sheets, pressing down the ends. Stir the cheese and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle the pastries with the cheese mixture.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown and the bacon is crisp. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets or wire racks for 5 minutes.
