A real Australian classic… cheese & bacon rolls but with a twist. The twist in the recipe is that the rolls are now scrolls, which makes them even better as you get cheese and bacon in every bite!
These simple cheese & bacon scrolls are the perfect snack that is both delicious and convenient. They can be enjoyed straight out of the oven on a crisp winter morning when they are warm and fresh. Or they can even be a good snack to have during a nice picnic. These scrolls are so diverse and are always crowd-pleasers when taken to any parties or events.
Though bread-making can be intimidating to beginner bakers, I can assure you that the bread-making in this recipe is very simple. The key to success in this recipe is simply a lot of patience because bread-making requires a lot of waiting around for it to prove.
Before you start baking these delicious scrolls, I do have to pre-warn you that they are highly addictive and that you will be making your second batch before you know it.
If you are a vegetarian, or not a lover of bacon, I have some great substitutes that can be used to replace the bacon. I have listed some of my personal favorites below, but you can basically add whatever you like to these scrolls as they are very versatile.
We Australians can’t go past vegemite, butter, and cheese for a tasty cheesymite! It’s a great Aussie bakery favorite.
For Mediterranean food lovers, sundried tomatoes, olives, and cheese scrolls are a great option for a snack or a quick lunch.
And for those who love basil and nuts, pesto, nut, and cheese scrolls will have you wanting more.
Many of the local bakeries bake spinach and fetta danishes. They are a classic bakery snack and for good reason. I don’t know if it’s the saltiness of the fetta or the feeling of being a little bit healthy because you’re eating spinach!
Last but not least, salami tastes good with everything, especially when it’s with warm bread and cheese. These taste great in a baked scroll, where all of the flavors ooze through the bread while it’s cooking.
Whatever you choose as your filling, you won’t be disappointed with these tasty little cheese and bacon scrolls.
