Cheese and Bacon Rolls

Store-bought Cheese and Bacon rolls are expensive, but with a little help from your bread machine you can whip them up in no time at all.  I promise, you won’t be disappointed.  If you don’t have a bread machine, try this recipe.

Cheese and Bacon Rolls


250mls Water

1 Egg

2 Tbl Margarine

1/2 tsp Salt

2 Tbl  Sugar

3 1/4 Cups Plain Flour (I use Bread Flour)

2 1/2 tsp Yeast (1 sachet)

2  Cups Grated Cheese (it depends on how much you like cheese)

2-3  Rashers Diced Bacon


1 Egg for glazing the rolls



Preheat your oven to 180C.

Place all ingredients in your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.

Place on dough cycle and away you go.

Grease a large baking tray.

When the dough cycle has finished, remove the dough, break into approx 12-15 evenly sized balls and place into baking tray, leaving a small space between each one to allow for rising.

Place your tray in a warm place ( I turn on my coffee machine and sit it on top), cover and leave it to rise for about 30 minutes, or until the rolls have doubled in size.

Lightly brush your rolls with the beaten egg, and sprinkle with your cheese and bacon.

Place in the oven for approx. 20-25 minutes until the rolls have turned a lovely golden colour and the cheese has completely melted.

LunchBox Tips….

These rolls should last for a couple of days in an air-tight container and will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months.
