Ham, Cheese and Tomato Scrolls

Last weekend the weather was AMAZING and I decided to make savoury scrolls for Ben and I to take on a picnic to our local dam/park/gardens. I wanted something quick, easy and without rising time to I developed a scone style herb scroll and it was delicious!

Ingredients – Scroll

  • 1 cup of wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1 cup of self raising flour
  • 50g of butter – cubed
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp of mixed Italian herbs

Ingredients – Filling

  • 100g of meat – I used a Russian smoked ham
  • Tomato paste of pizza sauce – to spread. Make sure your sauce choice isn’t too salty!
  • Cheddar cheese to scatter
  • I also put some mushrooms in mine, it did make them hard to roll tightly but I LOVE mushrooms!
  • NOTE: within reason, you can basically put whatever you would like in these – pineapple, fresh tomato, avocado – if hot avocado is your thing.

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine the flour, herbs and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Rub in the butter with your fingertips as though you were making a scone mix – these are essentially just a giant, delicious scone. 
  4. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and slowly pour in the milk.
  5. Using your fingertips, again, combine the milk and the flour mix to form a dough ball that lifts away from the edges of the bowl. Yes, you will look like a creepy dough monster while this happens. 
  6. Place the dough ball on a well floured surface and knead until smooth. 
  7. Roll out to form a rectangle approximately 25-30 cm long and as wide as you’d like. I wouldn’t recommend it to be too thick as it will be dry and not very scroll-like. JESS9
  8. Top the dough with your desired filling, roll width-ways and cut into 2-3cm scrolls.JESS11JESS15JESS16
  9. Place onto baking tray and bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
  10. Remove from oven, allow to cool and transfer to a serving tray.

Enjoy! xx
