Prep Time: 25 min.

For a refreshing and elegant appetizer with ingredients you are likely to have at home, try these Cheddar Roll-Ups. These apps are versatile, as you can stuff them with any cheese or filling you like. You could use a larger cucumber and roll one slice with cheddar to save time.

What you need


1. Use the vegetable peeler to trim away the outer layers of the cucumber.

2. Now, peel the cucumber into wide strips.

3. Slice the cheddar and halve each slice.

4. Cut each half into three smaller pieces.

5. Place three strips of cucumber on top of each other so they overlap slightly.

6. Trim the bottom so it is straight.

7. Lay a piece of cheddar at the base of the cucumber strips.

8. Roll the cucumber carefully over the cheese and continue rolling, ensuring everything stays in place.

9. Once you have moved to the end, trim the top of the slices so these are straight, too.

10. Secure with a toothpick diagonally.

11. Decorate with a basil leaf.
