One of my kids favourite lunch box snacks for school and on weekends are Vegemite and Cheese Pasty Scrolls. Sometimes I do make them from scratch but when I don’t have time I cheat. I have to thank my good friend Annaliese for introducing me to this super easy Vegemite and Cheese Pasty Scrolls recipe many years ago.
I originally posted this recipe on 8th March 2012, I have updated it with new photos.
I am now into the routine of making the kids lunches the night before, so I whip up a batch of these while I am cooking dinner and put them in the lunchboxes ready for the next day. When the kids were younger I used to make them in the morning to pop into their lunchbox for that day so they are a little fresher and crisp.
Preheat your oven to 220°C, fan forced. Thaw out your puff pastry. Then spread with vegemite. The amount really depends on how much you like vegemite to how much you want to use, I light a medium-thick spread, which is about 1-1.5 tablespoons.
Then generously sprinkle with grated cheese.
Roll the pastry up into a log.
Slice into 1.5cm slices.
Bake in oven for 8-12 minutes. These can cook quickly depending on how good your fan works in your oven. I’d check on them at 8 minutes and again at 10, cook until they are golden. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before eating or putting in lunchboxes.
