Kaycee's Homemade cheese rolls

Earlier this week our 7 year old and her class visited the local Tesco store to learn more about food and healthy eating. She sampled some foods and watched a video. At the end of the trip Tesco gave the kids a little bag with stickers and some recipes. She usually has the attention span of a fish and rarely wants to do anything that does not involve my little ponies or bin weevils! But she was very interested in making these recipes and even come up with a fantastic suggestion of using them in the girls packed lunches next week! Genius :)

Ingredients: Makes 6-8 rolls (halving the ingredients will make around 4 large size rolls)

  • Strong flour - whole meal or white - 500g
  • Salt - 5ml spoonful of salt (i do not like salty foods but if you feel you need more use more)
  • Yeast - 2 7g yeast sachets (i used 1 the 1st time round and they took forever to rise) 
  • Warm water - 200-250 mls water
  • Sugar - 5ml spoonful of sugar (personal taste)
  • Flavourings - optional.

Method :

Step one: Add flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a bowl.and mix together. Make well in the mixture and start adding warm water abit at a time. Mix all together to form a dough. * If using flavourings add these to the mixture before adding the water *

Step 2: Sprinkle some flour onto a clean surface and knead the dough for around 10 mins.

Step 3: Divide your dough into ball shapes and place onto a greased baking tray. Cover and leave in a warm room for around 25-30 mins till they double in size

Step 4: Cook in the oven at 180 degrees for about 10- 15 mins, until they are golden brown.  Serve warm with a soup or leave to cool and use as lunches.

Cost to make -

  • Strong flour - between 80p and £2 depending on the size of the bag
  • Yeast - 6 x 7g sachets from Asda - 65p
  • Salt - usually in the cupboard so not sure on cost
  • Water - free
  • Sugar - 50p - £1 depending on size of bag and where its purchased
  • Flavourings - dependent on flavouring. 

To make a loaf of bread, just follow the same recipe and shape into a loaf instead of rolls. (use a loaf tin to cook if its easier)

Some flavouring ideas:

  • Cheese and onion (pre cook the onion)
  • Tomato (add some tomato puree) 
  • Garlic and herb
  • Garlic
  • Herbs
  • Ham
The list is endless to be honest. Be inventive and see what you can come up with :D

    1. They are nice, proper fluffy and gorgeous hot :D

  2. Maybe I could sneak some grated veg in there for my fussy eater? ;)

    1. Im thinking some spinach and feta (kaycee likes both) stick more sugar in and finely grate some carrot, add some mixed dried fruit and make sweet rolls - like a carrot cake tea cake lol x

  3. These look gorgeous! I love cheese scones thanks!
