Easy-peasy snacky recipe

A little while ago on Instagram I posted a picture of Vegemite and cheese scrolls and I had a few people ask for the recipe. I make them for a quick snack or if Amelie has a playdate, they are good to whip up and she loves them.

So today I finally got around to taking some step-by-step photos - it really is the easiest to make.

Step 1: Take a sheet of puff pastry out of the freezer and defrost for a couple of minutes.

Step 2: Grate some cheddar cheese while you are waiting - a handful (how very Jamie Oliver of me)

Step 3: Now Vegemite isn't to everyone's taste so you could use Marmite but you need something with a bit of tang,  and we only had Vegemite in the cupboard so that is what I used.

Step 4: Spread a thin layer of Vegemite over the defrosted puff pastry and scatter the grated cheese over the top.

Step 5: Roll the pastry like a Swiss roll or sushi roll, trying to keep it quite tight.

Step 6: Once rolled cut (with the end of the pastry on the bottom to seal when cutting).  Cut into about 2cm sections.

Step 7: Place on a greased tray (I use canola spray) on their side and brush with some beaten egg to glaze and pop in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes (times might vary as my oven is rubbish but take them out when they are lightly golden).

Step 8: They come out like this, all puffed up but I like to flip them over...

Step 9: 'Cause I think they look prettier, just let them cool and eat.

If you do make them let me know how you go and remember, they are a sometimes food (puff pastry has quite a bit of fat in it) ^U^


  1. You are genius! I'm definitely going to make these but I think I might grate two handfuls of cheese… one for me and one for the recipe. ;)
