4 Ingredients Easy Cheese Straws

This side dish is quick and simple yet full of cheese flavour, you can whip them up in just 15 minutes.

It is easy yet tasty and it is best served with soup or different varieties of dips. 
If you would like to eat them alone, I suggest you could sprinkle some black pepper on before you bake it.

More easy recipes will be coming soon, stay tuned :)
