Easy savoury scrolls from scratch

I always like to do different styles of baking. Always I try to improve the dough in each recipe. This is one of them. The bread comes so nice and fluffy. So the texture of this bread scroll is very soft and moist too.

The filling can be done in different ways.You can use the sliced meat or shredded meat from the deli with cheese slices. (Thats the easiest) If not you can use the left overs from the Sunday roast or can prepare them on your own. Make sure not to have a liquids. Then the bread will go soggy underneath. Even the cheese will do this to the bread if you use a very fatty version of cheese. I used the proceed cheese because of that.

As I always mention, when adding water do not add once. When using eggs for a recipe, make sure to add a little at once. Then wait and add a bit more. This way the dough will comes soft and pliable.

Always leave space in between the scrolls to prove. I used a 12x 4 inch pan for this recipe. If you are living in a cooler climate make sure to preheat oven to 25-30c and leave the dough in the oven. That way it helps to prove quickly.

Enjoy baking!

We all are busy in this globalize world. I find it really hard and tiring to cook several dishes after work for our dinner. I really care about what my family eats and whether it is nutritios or not. So i always try to cook a balanced dinner. This is one of them. I through every thing around to make it a full meal. This is just an idea. You can alwys create you own.

When I do shoppin g I buy wraps for easy use and so simple to make too. you can fill with what ever you like. they are handy to have. You can buy several and freeze them for later use. If nothing around can defrost one and use like this.

This is a complete meal with less carbohydrates. With all the cheeses it gives nice creamier taste. I really love the mxican food. So tasty and loads of meat and vegetables. If I see a mexican restaurant I dont think twice to have one of their beautiful meals. Try making your kids eat lot of vegetables this way. they will love it. Its good for the lunch box too.
