How to make Millionaire's Bacon & Cheddar Puff Pastry Twists?

  • Step 1: Lightly roll out the puff pastry.
  • Step 2: Brush with an egg wash.

  • Step 3: Add a thin layer of brown sugar. You don't want the bacon to be overwhelmingly sweet, so I recommend sticking to 1/4 cup or less.

  • Step 4: Add a layer of cheddar cheese and freshly chopped rosemary leaves.
  • Step 5: Use your hands to lightly press down the cheese into the puff pastry.


  • Step 6: Fold the puff pastry in half (hotdog-style / lengthwise).
  • Step 7: Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to slice into 12 strips.

  • Step 8: Add a slice (or half slice) of bacon on top of each strip, then twist.
  • Step 9: Brush with an olive oil or egg wash, then bake until golden brown and crispy.


What does millionaire's bacon taste like?

Millionaire's bacon tastes like a crispy, sweet candied bacon (not hard or chewy like jerky) with a hint of cayenne pepper to balance out the flavors.
