    recipe title: Poppy + Sesame Seed Straws
    category: Appetizers, Other
    keywords: appetizers, sesame
    servings: 60
          2 tb Poppy seeds
          2 tb Sesame seeds
          1 lg Egg white
          2 tb Olive oil
        1/4 ts Salt
          6    Phyllo dough sheets (14x18"
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Heat a small heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the poppy and sesame seeds and cook, stirring until they are aromatic and toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn out onto a plate to cool. In a small bowl, whisk together egg white, oil and salt. Lay a sheet of phyllo on a work surface with a short side toward you. With a pastry brush, lightly coat the lower half of the sheet with the egg-white mixture and sprinkle with 1 tsp. seeds. Fold the upper half over to cover the lower half. Brush the right half of the folded sheet with egg-white mixture, sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. seeds and fold the left half over the seeds. Brush the bottom half of the folded sheet with the egg-white mixture, sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. seeds and fold the upper half over. Finally, brush the top with the egg-white mixture and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. seeds. Cut into 10 short strips using a knife or serrated pastry cutter. With a wide spatula, transfer the strips to the baking sheet, placing them about 1/2 inch apart. Repeat the procedure with the remaining 5 sheets of phyllo, egg-white mixture and seeds. Bake the straws for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden and crisp. Transfer to a rack to cool. The straws may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Makes about 5 dozen straws. 19 calories per straw: 1 g protein, 1 g fat, 3 g carbohydrate; 23 mg sodium; 9 mg cholesterol. From Eating Well, May/June 1993.
