Home Recipes By product Green Thunder Green Thunder pesto whirls

These elegant party canapes are just as tasty served warm from the oven as they prepared in advance and chilled in the fridge. They cleverly use ready-made puff pastry and pesto to make them super easy to assemble – and everyone loves the savoury flavours of Green Thunder, our mature Cheddar with roasted garlic and garden herbs.


  1. Preheat a fan oven to 200C.
  2. Unroll the pastry until flat.
  3. Spread the pesto thinly over the pastry, leaving a 2cm border around the edge.
  4. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the pesto.
  5. Roll up the pastry tightly into a sausage shape and cut into 3cm discs, placing them flat on a nonstick baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and crispy.
  7. Cool on a wire rack and serve while still warm, or cool and store it in an air-tight container in the fridge.
