Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
14 ounces Puff pastry, ready to use
2 cups Pistachios, natural chopped
3 ½ cups Smoked bacon, chopped
3 ½ cups Emmental or Swiss cheese, chopped
Roll pastry to a thickness of 1/8 in. Brush with egg and sprinkle bacon, Emmental or Swiss cheese and chopped pistachios on top to form a thin, even layer. Press gently to make sure ingredients stick to pastry.
Fold pastry in half with the help of a rolling pin and press so that the two sides stick together. Use a pastry cutter to cut ½ inch wide strips.
Hold each strip with left hand and twist 5 times with right to form a sort of corkscrew.
Before baking, press points where pastry is twisted for greater solidity.
Bake in 325° F oven for ten or so minutes.
