A real Australian classic… cheese & bacon srolls 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.

Course Snack
Servings 6



  • 4 rashers Bacon diced
  • 1 cup Tasty cheese grated
  • ½ cup Mozarella cheese grated


  • 3⅓ cups All-purpose flour
  • 7 grams Dried yeast
  • 2 tsp Caster sugar
  • 2 tsp Table salt
  • 1⅓ cups Luke-warm water


  • Combine all the dry bread ingredients into a large bowl.
  • Then make a well in the flour mixture and add the water into the well. Use your hands to combine the flour mixture and water to form dough.
  • Place extra flour on a clean, flat surface. Pour the dough onto the surface and knead for around 10 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Grease a bowl with olive oil and place the dough into it. Wrap the bowl with glad wrap and leave it in a warm area (that’s around 30°c) for 45 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • While the dough is rising mix the tasty and mozzarella cheese into a bowl. Then, cut the bacon into 5mm cubes and cook it in the frying pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 on fan-forced.
  • Turn the dough onto the floured surface again and knead the dough for 2 minutes or until it has become smooth and elastic.
  • Roll out the dough ball with a floured rolling pin to make a rectangle shape with a 5mm thickness.
  • Evenly distribute half the cheese and bacon over the rolled-out dough. After that, from the shorter end roll the dough tightly into a long log.  With a sharp knife, cut the log into 6 even pieces.
  • Place the 6 pieces in a greased baking pan. It is okay if the pieces slightly touch each other in the pan.
  • Place the baking pan in the oven for 20 minutes. Then after 15 minutes or until the scrolls are slightly cooled place them on a cooling rack.
  • Now you can enjoy your scrolls!

Different Flavours

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.

Alternative Filling Suggestions

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.
