Servings 9


  • 1 pkt puff pastry
  • 10 ml olive oil
  • Pinch of salt & ground pepper
  • 4 tbsp white cheddar cheese
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper to taste
  • 5 tbsp Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • Sesame seeds


  • Select the “CONVECTION” function and preheat the Russell Hobbs Air Fryer Oven to 180 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet that fits into the cooking cavity with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Place a sheet of frozen puff pastry dough onto a floured work surface and allow dough to thaw just until it can be unfolded.
  • Unfold dough into a flat sheet; brush the top of the puff pastry dough lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper onto the puff pastry sheet.
  • Grate and sprinkle the white Cheddar cheese and 3 tbsp Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese onto the dough, covering the surface. Top with a piece of plastic wrap; press cheese and seasonings firmly into the dough with your fingers or by laying a sheet pan onto the dough over the plastic and pressing it down.
  • Remove the plastic and use a sharp knife to cut the dough into three equal parts; then divide each third into three for a total of 9 breadsticks. Sprinkle a tablespoon of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over the sticks.
  • Roll the sticks lightly to even up their shapes, pick up and press any dropped cheese onto the surface.
  • Pick up a dough strip, place it seasoned side down on the work surface, and twist from both ends 8 or 9 times to make a rolled tube of dough with the seasoned side out. Place the rolled breadsticks onto your prepared baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle the remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over the sticks. Roll the sticks lightly to even up their shapes finishing with any dropped cheese over the tops.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes; flip and continue baking until the breadsticks are browned and crisp, about 5 more minutes. If you pick up a stick by one end and it drops, bake until sturdy. Allow them to cool down on a rack before serving.
