Cheese & Bacon Scrolls are super easy to make at home and they make a great sandwich alternative in the kids lunch boxes. I would often buy them from the supermarket as a school treat, but they are rather expensive and so easy to replicate at home.
They freeze and defrost beautifully, so once a month I bake several dozen and pop them in the freezer for a quick and easy lunch or morning tea for the kids. In summer you can pop the frozen scrolls into the lunch box in the morning and they will thaw before lunch, but in winter I pop them in the lunch box in the fridge the night before.
I use the two ingredient yoghurt dough for scrolls which makes them quick and easy to make as there’s no yeast or proving involved. This is the same dough I use to make Cheesymite Scrolls too and I also use it for pizza bases and sweet scrolls.
2 cups of self-raising flour
1 cup of Greek style yoghurt (I use the Farmers Union brand)
3 Slices of shortcut bacon diced
1 cup of grated Tasty cheese
Pre-heat oven to 180c fan forced.
In a large bowl mix your flour and yoghurt until well combined. Knead for a minute or two and set aside while lining trays with baking paper.
Lightly flour the bench and using a rolling pin, roll your dough into a rectangle shape until it’s around 1-2cm thick.
Smear with butter and Vegemite just as as you would when making a sandwich and sprinkle with grated Cheese.
Roll the dough up to resemble a log, cut 3cm rounds, place flat on a lined baking tray and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden.
Optional – Prior to baking you can top with a little extra grated cheese.
You can totally pimp these scrolls too, add whatever your kids like. Add diced pineapple for a Hawaiian scroll or tomato paste or pizza sauce, sliced mushrooms, capsicum and olives for a pizza version.
