I had promised the volunteer cooks (9 of us) of Holy Rosary Church Nedlands, Perth that every month I would produce different snacks of different nationality for each Sunday Morning Tea. This snack is due to be made for March Sunday Morning Tea.

Kaassoufflé (Dutch Fried Cheese Pastry) is the most popular snack in the Netherlands. It is thought to be influenced by Indonesian street food called gorengan (fritter), and it is either homemade or bought ready-made frozen and deep-fried at home, or ordered at snack bars in the Netherlands.


If you want the classic Dutch kaassoufflé, use a Gouda or Edam cheese.

Step 3 of 7

    • 3 egg(s)
    • 100 g bread crumbs
  1. In a deep plate beat eggs using a fork to make egg wash and for coating pastries. In another deep plate put bread crumbs.
  2. Take the cut puff pastry sheet [12cm x 12cm] and remove the paper/plastic lining the sheet.
  3. Place a cheese sub-block on the puff pastry sheet leaving about 2.5cm away from the edge near you.
  4. Brush the edges of the sheet with the egg wash. This will help the puff pastry pieces to stick together.
