Homemade Vegemite and Chutney Scrolls

1. homemade vegemite scroll, 2. homemade chutney scrolls, 3. homemade pesto scrolls

A couple of years ago while at a my friend Annie’s house for a visit, she made these vegemite scrolls for the children. They were a big hit with my kids and I have been making them in various forms for lunches and snacks when we have visitors since then.

The base model uses an Australian spread Vegemite but I prefer chutney scrolls (I use the Rosella Fruit Chutney). But you can be as creative as you want, replacing the Vegemite with pesto, ham, tomato etc.

It is an easy recipe to make for lunch when you have a quite a few mouths to feed. It is also a great stand by dish. You can have some pastry on hand in the freezer, add some cheese and then just use what ingredients you have on hand to add some flavour.

Vegemite or Chutney Scrolls

Ingredients:

  • 4 sheets puff pastry
  • Vegemite, chutney and pesto
  • Approx 250 grams tasty cheese grated

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to a med – high temperature (approx 190).
  2. Defrost pastry.
  3. Spread each sheet of pastry with either vegemite or chutney. This can be done as you wait for the pastry to defrost.
  4. Sprinkle lightly with cheese, leaving a gap at one end, so the scroll can be sealed.
  5. Roll up the pastry sheets tightly and blend the end of sheet into the roll.
  6. Cut the rolls into pieces approx one inch wide.
  7. Lay flat down on a tray lined with baking paper. Allow room for spreading.
  8. Cook for approx 15 minutes or until puffed and golden.

Makes approx 30 scrolls.
