Delicious and easy for entertaining or to snack on.



Let cheese sit out for 1-2 days, so it is easy to work with. Place cheese in blender. Add melted margarine. Slowly add flour to mix. Add salt and cayenne pepper.

Place mix in a tube that squeezes out, or make your own with a sandwich bag by cutting out the tip.

Squeeze on to pan. Place cheese straws into refrigerator for 15-20 min to firm them up. Place into pre-heated oven 375 degrees F. Bake 12-13 minutes.

Here we go again with my love of jalapenos and cheese, but this one has the added wonderful flavor of green olives. :) Make a double batch and freeze to bake at a later time for a quick snack.




Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small mixing bowl, combine cheese and butter. Stir in flour. Blend well. Wrap a tablespoon of dough around each green olive. Arrange the wrapped olives on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 can refrigerated quick crescent rolls
  • 8 thin slices boiled ham
  • sesame seed (opt.)


Combine first 3 ingredients with 3 Tbsp. butter in small bowl, mixing well. Separate roll dough into 4 rectangles, pressing to seal perforations. Cut each rectangle in half; stretch dough to form eight 4x4 inch squares. Spread with ketchup mixture; top with ham. Roll up tightly, sealing edges. Place seam side down on baking sheet. Spread with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-22 minutes until brown.

You have got to try this one! Cut some sharp cheddar cheese into dipping sized slices. Put some of your favorite honey into a bowl. Dip cheese into honey and eat! Kids love it! It's an easy summer time snack.

As a child, I enjoyed these little cheese rolls from a grocery store bakery/deli counter, but have not seen them for about 20 years. They were small straw-like rolls, about 6 inches long and less than a half inch in diameter. The outside was a thin cheese-flavored wafer-like coating that could be unpeeled in layers. The inside was a soft cheddar cheese filling.


They were much like the chocolate flavored straws with a French-sounding name that begins with "P" but which I can't recall the name. Does anyone know the name of these, or a source from which to buy them?

Cheese Flavored Straws

I am not sure about the chocolate ones or the name .. but I know that the restaurant called "La Madeleines" carries cheese straws and they are delicious! Especially with their tomato basil soup. (09/29/2008)
