Easter Snack: Parmesan Bunny Ears Recipe - SavvyMom

All Easter treats don’t have to be sweet. In fact, these delicious and savoury (and cute!) Parmesan Bunny Ears are a perfect side at an Easter brunch. And they pair well with anything you may be serving for Easter dinner — but most especially if that’s a baked ham.

Using store-bought puff pastry and just three more ingredients, you could prep the night before and bake during the big morning Easter Egg hunt.

Parmesan Bunny Ears Recipe:

You’ll Need

  • ⅔ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dill weed
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Prep and Cook

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Combine the Parmesan cheese and dill weed in a small bowl.
  • On a flour-dusted work surface, use a rolling pin to roll out the puff pastry to a 12” x 12” square.
  • Brush the pastry evenly with the olive oil and sprinkle half the Parmesan mixture over the pastry. Fold 2 opposite sides of the pastry into the centre of the sheet, and sprinkle with half of the remaining cheese and herb mixture, pressing the cheese into the pastry.
  • Continue folding in the sides and sprinkling with the cheese until you are left with a long log, 6-layers thick.
    Slice ½” off each end to even the edges, and cut crossways into ½”-thick slices.
  • Place the slices cut-side up on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2” apart.
    Chill for 25 minutes.
  • Bake the cold pastry for 6 minutes.
    Remove from the oven and flip the bunny ears over.
    Bake for an additional 3–4 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and puffed.
    Remove from the oven and serve warm or at room temperature.
