One of the things that excites me most about the Thermomix is it’s incredible ability to make the most deliciously tasty scrolls. These Ham & Cheese Scrolls are a firm favourite in our household. They’re absolutely delicious straight out of the oven – all warm and toasty, but they’re equally as good popped into lunch boxes for a tasty lunch! If you’re on a budget (and aren’t we all), these scrolls are so cost effective. You could pretty much make a whole batch for the cost of 1 or 2 at the bakery… now that’s good value. And anyway, there’s no way you can possibly beat the smell of homemade scrolls cooking in the kitchen!
- 450 g lukewarm water
- 1 tbs dried yeast (or 40g fresh yeast)
- 1½ tsp sea salt
- 750 g plain flour
- 100 g olive oil
- 200 g thinly sliced ham
- 200 g grated cheese
- 4-5 tbs tomato paste
- Grease a large springform pan and set aside (I also needed a smaller pan for the leftover scrolls).
- Place water, yeast, salt, flour and oil into mixing bowl and mix 6 seconds on speed 6 and then knead for 2 minutes.
- Transfer dough to a lightly floured board and work into a ball.
- Place in a bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave to prove in a warm spot for 30 minutes or until it has doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Roll dough into a large rectangle that is 5cm thick.
- Spread over the tomato paste.
- Add the ham.
- Sprinkle over the cheese (leaving a little to add when the scrolls are in the pan).
- Roll the rectangle into a long log.
- Use dental floss to cut the log into even slices.
- Lay the scrolls cut side down into the pan, starting in the middle and moving your way out towards the edges.
- Set aside to prove for another 10-15 minutes.
- Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes or until golden on top and hollow when tapped.
- Allow to cool a little in the pan before turning out onto a plate.
