Mamma Jo's Savoury Scrolls

These ones are great to bake on a Sunday - If you're lucky - there may be some left for lunch boxes on Monday...Try these with anything you like - there are zero rules and endless options - Today I used pesto that I have made for a dish a few days ago, and some Prosciutto and goats cheese - because they all go well together, and its what I felt like eating! As I was making them, I was thinking about maybe making a smoky pumpkin puree with parma ham or goats cheese and sage... like I said - so many options!

You may have to draw straws over the crunchy corner bits

I have made my dough using my Thermomix - but if you don't have one - don't stress - you can make dough by hand or with a stand mixer - whatever makes your life easier is the best way to go with!


  • 300g warm water

  • 1 sachet of dry yeast

  • 20g olive oil

  • pinch salt

TM Method - To make the dough, mix these ingredients for 2 mins/Speed1 on temp 37C

NO TM - If not using a Thermomix - just mix the ingredients all together and let sit for about 5 minutes.

  • 500g bakers flour

TM Method - Add in the flour, and mix together for 5 seconds - speed 5, then knead for 2.5 mins using the dough function.

NO TM - mix wet and dry ingredients and knead about 5 minutes using a dough hook, and until you get a soft dough that stays together.

Roll dough into a ball and let sit somewhere covered for about 30 mins or so - you want it to double in size. Once it has risen, punch it down, then roll flat into a rectangle, and get ready to 'fill' your scroll.

Use what ever filling takes your fancy - just brush or spread it on, then slowly roll it up into a long log

Once you have rolled your log, cut into 'strips' however thick you like to have them, and place in a greased baking tin. Today I needed more cheese - don't judge me - so I grated some Mozzarella on top - but normally I restrain myself - ok, well sometimes I try.

Place into a cold oven then turn to 200C and bake around 25-30 mins depending on how thick you have cut them - thicker will take a little longer to cook all the way through.

They will come out like a loaf - pull apart or slice like bread - up to you - it is all delicious! If you want definite single scrolls, place them separate in the pan without touching and they will brown as lovely individual scrolls - otherwise, have then all together, and cut up as a loaf!

Variations to think about:

  • Vegemite and cheese

  • Pumpkin, Cumin and pinenuts

  • Spinach and Feta

  • Pesto and sun dried tomato

  • Apple and Cinnamon - sprinkle sugar on top instead of cheese!

How ever you decide to scroll - have fun, and share your scroll story with me using the hashtag #mammajo - I would love to share your efforts with the world too!
