Just in case you think that my cooking extends only to meals, every so often I take it upon myself to do some baking for my kids. Specifically, for their lunches.
A couple of months ago, there was a half dozen rolls of ready-rolled pastry in the reduced to clear chilled section of my local supermarket for $1 per roll (normal cost is $2.79/roll), so I bought them and popped them in my freezer. Just as well, because I had a perfect reason to use them tonight, and defrosted a couple of them.
After dinner was in the oven (I tend to bake when I am cooking, or cook soon after doing baking, to save on electricity), I unrolled each of them (great that these ready-rolled have a sheet of plastic that they are wrapped in) and proceeded to make Pizza Scrolls and Marmite Cheese Scrolls…
For the Pizza Scrolls you will need:
Ready Rolled Pastry
Spread the Pizza Sauce all over the pastry, leaving a strip of about 2 cm on one long edge.
Cover the Pizza Sauce with salami, and then with grated cheese.
Roll up starting with the long side with the filling. Moisten the blank side with some water and gently pinch the seam together.
Cut the roll in half, then each of those halves in half, and each of those into 3, so you have 12 slices.
Place cut side up on a baking paper lined tray, with space between them so the pastry cooks.
Bake at 220deg for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
For the Marmite and Cheese Scrolls, you will need:
Marmite (you *could* use Vegemite if you don’t like Marmite)
Using the same method as for the pizza scrolls, apply half a spoonful of marmite over the whole of the pastry, leaving a 2cm wide strip at one long side. Sprinkle over the cheese, roll and slice up. Place cut side up on a paper-lined tray, and bake at 220deg for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown and pastry is cooked.
