Vegemite and Cheese Scrolls
I know one of my last posts was a recipe (oatmeal and raisin cookies – yum!) but as the school term progresses I usually start getting bored and want some new lunch ideas! These little dynamites are somewhat of an Australian icon. Even children who don’t like Vegemite seem to love them! I always prefer baking or sending home-made goodies to school rather than packet or processed products, so this week I tried one of my favourite (and so freaking super easy!) pizza dough recipes out as a Vegemite and Cheese scroll conversion – success!! SO GOOD! SO EASY! Winner winner, scroll for dinner! (Well, lunch actually!)
For the pizza dough:
- 2 cups of self-raising flour (280g)
- 1 cup Greek yoghurt (270g)
Place all ingredients in Thermomix. Put on closed lid position, Interval (bread) speed for 2 minutes.
If you don’t have a Thermomix, you can do the same but knead it, OR you can use the ‘cheat’s’ recipe and use puff pastry!
For the filling:
Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a rectangle shape (or spread out the defrosted puff pastry sheet). If you’re using dough, I actually halved the ball of dough and did it in two lots which made cute smaller scrolls (as pictured).
Spread with Vegemite down the middle. Sprinkle generously with cheese and roll until it’s a long cylinder shape. Using a sharp, serrated knife, cut the scrolls about 4cm thick (1 1/2-2 inches) and place them close to each other on a lightly oiled tray.
Place in the oven at 180ºC and cook for about 15 minutes until golden. Delicious for lunches, even better warm!
And just for fun, I mixed things up a bit – I used half the dough for one batch of vegemite and cheese scrolls and the other half for salami, cheese and olive (aka pizza!) scrolls! So delicious!!
