Cheese & Bacon Scrolls

Today I had a pang of guilt about offering sandwich options for lunch. Being the weekend I thought I should really make a bit more of an effort. Sooooo, this is what we had!

I found the recipe in an old Donna Hay Kids issue and adapted it. The kidlets gave them a double thumbs up and they were super easy to make and so delicious I wished I'd made more.

You'll need
3 1/2 cups (525g) plain flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (180ml) buttermilk
3/4 cup (180ml) milk
1 1/2 cups cheese grated
250g diced bacon
1 egg lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 200C (400F). Place the flour baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and gradually add the milk and buttermilk stirring with a butterknife until well combined. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and kneed until smooth. Roll the dough out to a 30cm square. Top with half the cheese, the bacon and then the rest of the cheese.Roll to enclose the filling. You should be left with a rather fat type of pastry sausage. Cut into slices around 2cm each and place together on a lined baking tray cut sides up. Brush with egg mixture and bake for 25minutes.

Note - If you don't have any buttermilk on hand (I didn't) you can substitute with 2/3cup of milk and a good teaspoon of white vinegar mixed together and left to stand for 5 minutes before adding it to your  mixture.


  1. Like, Yum! I've made these before using the redimade pampus puff pastry but I think I'll give these a go! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. You'll have to let me know how they go! I made another batch yesterday and added some tomato passata as well which just elevated them to family favourite snack status...
