Cheese and Bacon Scrolls

This morning while I was making the kids a treat of Cheesymite Scrolls I thought I would make some Cheese and Bacon Scrolls (using the same dough recipe).  Another favourite of the kids is cheese and bacon rolls.  Have you guessed that we all love bread yet?

Just like the Cheesymite Scrolls these were easy to make (a couple of extra steps to take) but definitely nice to est fresh from the oven.  Perfect for a lunchbox treat also.  Also freezable, so handy to have for a quick snack, lunch or after school treat.

Cheese and Bacon Scrolls
(recipe adapted from The Organised Housewife)

Makes: 10

150 grams bacon, all visible fat trimmed and removed
3 cups Self Raising Flour
pinch salt
50 grams reduced fat butter
1-1 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/2 cups reduced fat grated tasty cheese

Heat oven to 220 Celsius.

Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. (Or you can use a bench blender on speed 2)

Stir in enough milk to make a soft dough.

Knead on a lightly floured board.

Roll to form a rectangle that is roughly 40cm x 25cm.

Spread tomato paste over the dough using a blunt knife or spatula. Sprinkle bacon over the tomato paste.Sprinkle 1 cup cheese over the top.

Roll up the dough starting from a long side first.

Cut 10 x 4cm pieces from the roll.

Place these pieces close together, cut side up on a greased baking tray. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool.
