250 g Philadelphia Original
100 g smoked salmon, chopped
black pepper to taste
Grated rind of ½ lemon
8 sheets of filo pastry
3 tbsp oil
1.Mix together the Philadelphia, salmon, black pepper and lemon rind and leave to one side.
2.Lay the filo pastry sheets on top of each other and cut into 3 equal strips to give 24 strips in all. Oil the top layer of filo, place a teaspoon of the Philly mixture on the end of each strip and roll up into a cylinder, then pinch the ends into a cracker shape.
3.Brush with a little oil and place onto an oiled baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining strips of filo until you have 24 crackers. Bake in a preheated oven, Gas 6, 200 C for 10 minutes until golden and crisp. Serve warm or cold as a party bite or as a starter.
Try using chives to tie around the cracker ends.
Substitute the lemon for a teaspoon of horseradish sauce.
