These bacon and cheese pinwheels are great for a quick little snack or lunch for little people.


Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 16 )

  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 egg - lightly beaten
  • 2 cups pizza cheese

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line two trays with baking paper.
  2. Cut the bacon into small pieces and set aside until needed.
  3. Place the two sheets of puff pastry which have partially thawed, onto your kitchen bench and brush the top and bottom edges lightly with the beaten egg.
  4. Sprinkle half of the bacon pieces over each sheet of pastry, leaving a border around all of the edges. Sprinkle pizza cheese over bacon.
  5. Carefully roll up the pastry, starting at the bottom with the edge brushed with egg, and roll to enclose the filling.
  6. Cut each roll into 8 pieces, place each pinwheel on baking trays.
  7. Brush a little of the beaten eggs over each pinwheel and sprinkle the with the remaining pizza cheese.
  8. Place the bacon and cheese pinwheels into the oven to cook for 10 minutes or until they are puffed and golden.

  • These are a regular here. They’re not easy to cook though. It’s a balancing act getting them puffed and golden without burning on the bottom. From experience, no way would they be cooked in ten minutes
