Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls

Step by step instructions for making these easy and delicious homemade Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls, also known as Cheesy-mite Scrolls.

As a busy mum, finding snacks that are both delicious and easy to make can be a challenge. My family love these Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls. Not only are they a great snack option, but they’re also perfect for school lunchboxes, picnics or a weekend lunch idea. 

I usually make these scrolls the night before and add to lunchboxes or have them fresh on weekends for lunch. You’ll also find this recipe in my Lunchbox Recipes Cookbook.   

You could use the base of this recipe for many different varieties:

  • ham and cheese
  • bacon and cheese
  • ham, capsicum, pineapple and cheese
  • ham, pineapple and cheese
  • chicken and sweet chilli
  • pizza sauce and cheese
  • salami and cheese
  • vegemite and cheese
  • spinach and fetta
  • sundried tomatoes, basil and cheese
  • ham, tomato and cheese
  • pesto and cheese

Make the dough, find full recipe below.  I make my dough on a silicone baking mat, as it’s a tedious job to clean the dough off the kitchen bench.


Roll to form a rectangle that is roughly 40cm x 25cm.

Spread vegemite over the dough using a blunt knife, then sprinkle cheese over the top.

Roll up the dough, starting from a long side first. Cut 10 x 4cm pieces from the roll. Place these pieces close together, cut side up on a greased baking tray.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden.

A great, non-sandwich idea for the lunchboxes. Find lunch box ideas here.
