Bacon Wrapped Bread Sticks

Oh these are so awesome! Super simple and great for any occasion.
Best of all everyone will love them!

I brought these over to my sisters Halloween party a couple of days ago

What you will need is:
1 box puff pastry, this you will find in the freezer section
1 package of thin bacon (or regular not thick)
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
5 Tablespoons melted butter
3 Tablespoons chopped rosemary
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 Egg white
Flour for your work surface

How to make them:
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees
Follow the defrosting instructions on your puff pastry
Once they are defrosted unfold the pastry on to a floured work surface
Brush with egg white
Sprinkle with the cajun seasoning and then the cheese
Using a rolling pin press cheese into the pastry
I found that using a pizza cutter was a smooth way to cut even lengths of dough for your breadsticks
Now cut your dough into about 1 inch widths

(I forgot the cheese on this one! oppsie!)

Time for the bacon!
Cut your bacon in half lengthwise and trim off the fat best you can, ya now there is barely any bacon right!?  sucks....

Now is the tricky part!
Twist together a strip of bread dough with a slice of uncooked bacon, its not going to be perfect, you may have to wrap the bread in half or vis versa! But hey it gives it character

You will want to have ready before you do that a tinfoil lined baking sheet, on top of that a baking grate.
Lay your bacon/bread sticks on top of that
Once your finished up with that melt your butter, mix with brown sugar and rosemary
Brush this mixture on to your sticks

Bake for 1 hour at 375

Let them cool a bit
Now devour!
