Yesterday was the most perfect blue skied day. I decided to make the most of the warm sun and bake some fresh Bacon & Cheese Rolls which are perfect for filling those hungry little tummies.
Using the Thermomix makes this process so quick & easy with so much less mess.
Here's my recipe for Bacon & Cheese Rolls.
8g sachet dry yeast
2 tsp caster sugar
280g warm water
480g bread flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tblsp good olive oil
200g rindless bacon finely chopped
1 1/3 cups grated tasty cheese
1 egg lightly beaten
Place yeast, sugar and warm water into TM jug, mix 20 secs - speed 4. Stand in a warm place for 10 mins, or until frothy on top.
Place jug back in TM, then add salt, flour and oil, and mix 5 secs - speed 7 to combine.
Set dial to closed lid position, and set for 1 minute 30 secs on interval speed.
Place in a large, lightly greased bowl, cover with clean tea towel and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size. (I placed mine on top of the kids slide - whatever works! ;) ).
Using your fist, punch dough down. Knead until smooth (this is where my heart swoons I love kneading after the first rise :D)
Grease two large baking trays (I used olive oil spray makes the base nice & crunchy). Divide dough into 8 even portions. Roll each portion into a 10cm x 12cm oval shape. Place ovals, 5cm apart on a prepared trays.
Cover with clean tea towel & set aside in a warm place for 30-40 minutes or until dough has almost doubled in size. (On top of the boat this time - chasing the sun!)
Pre-heat oven 200c normal, or 180c fan force (preferred). Once ovals have risen, brush with whisked egg, and sprinkle with the cheese then bacon pieces.
I finely diced cheese and bacon in the Thermomix first.
Bake for 20 minutes.
