Cheese and Onion Rolls

20170108_132100

Its a really easy recipe this week and probably not contributing too well to my healthy eating January….But I’ve been meaning to make these for a while. I’ve made some sausage rolls but fancied giving these a try and they’re really really easy. Now I cheated because I had some shop bought puff pastry to use up but next time I’ll use the one in the recipe which I found onΒ Bake then Eat.

Ingredients

Pastry
  • 175g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 75g vegetarian suet
  • 5-6tbsp cold water
Filling
  • 175g grated mature cheddar
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • a pinch of salt
  • 0.5 tsp smoked paprika

Preheat the oven to 220C / 425F / Gas 7 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Make the pastry first by mixing the flour, baking powder and vegetarian suet in a mixing bowl. Add the water a little at a time, you need just enough water to bring the dough together so it is soft and pliable. Place this one side to rest for a few minutes.

In another bowl mix the grated cheddar, chopped onion, salt and smoked paprika together until it is well combined. I used the food processor grater attachment for the cheese and onion which was so much easier!

Using the pastry from the recipe, divide the pastry in half and roll out each half into strips measuring around 30 x 10 centimetres (12 x 4 inches) or to whatever size you want really! Brush a little water around the edges, and divide the filling between the two strips. Place it in a line down the middle. Roll the strips along the long edge and cut each roll into 4 to 8 equal sized pieces. I wanted larger rolls so I split my pastry into 4 but still followed the same instruction as with the homemade.

Pop them on the baking tray seam side down with a little space between each roll, and bake for 12 to 16 minutes. My larger ones took 15 minutes.Β The rolls should be golden brown – you can use an egg wash if you like.

We had these for lunch straight from the oven and they were lovely but could have done with extra filling, although I can’t take the credit for the pastry on this occasion! I think I’ll look for some alternative recipes though and try these again with some potato in.
