The Easiest Cheese And Bacon Scrolls

Growing up I was lucky enough that I almost always had a cheese and bacon roll in my lunchbox. But I mean the greasy bread roll version that had very little nutritional value. It was great though!

Cheese and bacon rolls are a favourite for many of us and they are such a quick on the go lunch or snack. But you know what is even better?

2 ingredient savoury cheese & bacon scrolls!

Why? Because those 2 ingredients are Greek yogurt and flour. A much lighter alternative to your favourite savoury bread rolls, but far better for you.

And they taste just as good!

These homemade scrolls have been on our lunch box recipe rotation for a while. You will be surprised how easy they are to make.

How To Make A Scroll

You can make scrolls with any fillings you like. Don’t feel limited to just cheese and bacon. This is our favourite savoury filling along with pizza scrolls. You can also switch it up to make sweet scrolls too!

All you need is 1 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 and a half cups of self-raising flour to make your dough.

Mix the two together really well and knead into a dough. If your dough is too sticky, add some extra flour until you get the right consistency.

How to make scrolls

Then roll out your dough onto a clean bench surface that has extra self-raising flour sprinkled on it. The extra flour will help your dough to stop sticking to the bench.

Roll out into a large rectangle shape with a rolling pin. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. It won’t be!

Then just top your dough with your favourite fillings.

Roll up into a sausage shape from the long side, fillings on the inside. Then chop into 2cm sections.

Place flat on a prepared baking tray and bake for 20 minutes or until they are golden and delicious!

EASY AS THAT!
