Ham and cheese scrolls

Dough – from bread machine recipe for pull apart bread
2 teaspoons dry yeast
500g bread flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons dry milk powder
25g butter
360ml water

2 tablespoons tomato paste
Garlic powder
Diced ham
Grated tasty cheese

Chuck the dough ingredients in your bread machine and go watch tv for a couple of hours.

Tip dough out onto floured surface. Knead it a couple of times. And a few more. Come on, you know you’re supposed to do it for longer than that. Bugger it, it’ll be fine.

Roll dough out into a rectangle the size of the glass chopping board that’s the only thing you’ve got that’s suitable for working with dough or pastry on. Spread with tomato paste stopping about 3cm short of one long edge. Sprinkle with garlic and herbs. Then a layer of ham and then cheese. But only where the tomato paste is.

Roll it up from the long side opposite the naked bit. With any luck most of the filling will stay inside. And the naked bit will helpfully stick to the rest of it.

Slice it into 3-4cm slices. Place in oiled baking dish. (Yeah, this is the easiest bit, really, would I lie to you?) Leave somewhere warm to rise while you watch another episode.

Turn the oven on to about 180C (fan forced) and clean up the mess you made while it heats up. Stick the rolls in the oven and if you’re going back to the tv either set an alarm or choose a half hour show. They’ll be cooked in about 25mins. I think. Or however long it takes for the smell to get to the point where your brain says “Oh shit! The rolls!”

  1. Love it! These are my kind of recipe instructions. Except you left out the most critical bit for while you’re watching TV: “Pour yourself a glass of wine.”
