Steps (8)

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 425°F. Place one rack in top third of the oven, the other in lower third. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Step 2
    Combine cheese, Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning, Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix Packet, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
  • Step 3
    In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make the egg wash. Set aside.
  • Step 4
    Place one piece of the pastry dough vertically in front of you on a floured work surface. Cut in half crosswise. Brush both rectangles with the egg wash. Distribute the cheese mixture evenly onto the pastry, pressing down lightly so it adheres to the dough. Flip one rectangle so the cheese side is down. Brush with egg wash and place the second rectangle on top so cheese is on the outside of both rectangles.
  • Step 5
    Cut dough lengthwise into ½-inch strips. Twist the strips and pinch the ends so the shape holds. Place on baking sheet leaving 1 inch between each cheese straw.
  • Step 6
    Bake for 10 minutes, or until puffed and golden.


  • Step 1
    Make ahead and freeze.
  • Step 2
    Use your favorite cheese for a different flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to anything! Ranch seasoning and browned cheese adorning a crispy breadstick? They would make an easy, tasty item to bring to a potluck.
