.Thermomix Cooking: Cheese & Bacon Scrolls.

Oscar looooves cheese & bacon scrolls.  When ever I make a batch of these everyone complains because they are gone too fast - they really are super delicious (really, what bread fresh from the oven isn't delicious?!). I made a batch this week so that they came out of the oven just as Oscar stepped off the school about coolest Mum ever!

This is how I make them in the Thermomix - but I've been making them by hand or using the bread maker for longer than that.  I used to use the basic bread recipe in the Everyday Cookbook for all of my breads, but a friend shared this bread recipe with me and it's all I will use now.  It does take a little longer, but the bread is much nicer and lasts way longer.  

Cheese & Bacon Scrolls
300g water
600g plain flour
2 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp bread improver
15g oil
grated cheese
diced bacon

Place water into Thermomix bowl and cook on 1 minute on speed 2 at 37 degrees.
Add flour, yeast, salt, sugar, bread improver and oil. Mix for 5 seconds on speed 5.
Knead for 6 minutes on interval speed.
Place Thermomix bowl in a warm place to allow dough to rise until doubled in size.
Once risen, knead for 30 seconds on interval speed.
Remove dough from bowl and roll into a rectangle about 60cm x 30cm.  Sprinkle grated cheese and diced bacon over rectangle.
Starting at long edge, roll up into a scroll shape.
Cut into 1" pieces and place in a baking paper lined tray.
Cover with plastic wrap or a tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise for about 30-45 minutes.
Place into a cold oven and turn onto 200 degrees celsius.
Cook for 20-30 minutes.

I want to make some sweet scrolls, a cinammon filling with some fruit mince left over from xmas spread on as well.

Do you think this recipe would lend itself to sweet flavours as well?

I find traditional sweet scroll recipes (not yeast) to be rather dry.

Thanks for your instructions, I just made some scrolls :-)
I made half with tomato paste, bacon and cheese, the other half with vegemite and cheese.
I'm thinking next time I will roll and cut them the opposite way so that I get a heap of mini ones instead! They will be perfect for my little ones lunch boxes :-)
