  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/fan 180°C.
  2. Unroll pastry onto a work surface and sprinkle with parmesan, gruyère and cayenne pepper.  (and bacon rashers.)
  3. Take one of long edges and roll up pastry to form a swirl.
  4. With a sharp knife, slice into 34 thin rounds, then place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Chill until ready to cook.
  5. Bake cheese swirls in preheated oven for 8-10 mins till golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  6. Place a few egg chunks on each of the cheese swirls on top of a little crème fraîche, then top with a sprinkling of celery salt and some cress. Serve straightaway.

I didn’t prepare the eggs and we just had the Cheese Swirls as they were. Pretty good as a quick snack.. 🙂
