We satisfy salty snackers' appetites with these cheesy twists. Be extra generous with the pepper if you want to turn up the heat.


Olive oil cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Phyllo dough

6 sheet(s)

Egg whites

1 serving(s), large, beaten with 1 tablespoon water

Grated Parmesan cheese

¼ oz

Dried plain breadcrumbs

¼ tbsp(s), fine

Table salt

tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

pinch(es), or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 2 sheet pans with olive oil-flavoured cooking spray or cover them with parchment paper.
  2. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on a clean surface; brush lightly with egg white and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon each of Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Cover with a second sheet of phyllo; brush with egg white and sprinkle with another 1 tablespoon each of Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cover with third sheet of phyllo. Press layers together; fold in half lengthwise and, using a pastry wheel, pizza cutter or sharp paring knife, slice into twelve 7-inch strips. Twist each strip and lay on sheet pan; repeat entire procedure with remaining ingredients.
  3. Bake until crisp and lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Yields 2 twists per serving.
