Vegemite is greatly misunderstood by people who aren't Australian. It is to be used sparingly, and not slathered on like other spreads.
I prefer my Vegemite on lightly toasted white bread (mini white loaf from the bakery at the corner) which is then buttered and lightly spread with Vegemite. I like small triangles or soldiers. I never have Vegemite soldiers with a boiled egg. It is just plain wrong!!
The Vegemite and Cheese scrolls are great, because if you can't find any Vegemite, you can substitute chutney or chopped ham, for example. In fact, the Vegemite was really difficult to spread on the soft scone dough. Perhaps I should have tried My First Vegemite???!!! There is also Vegemite CheesyBite but I have always given that a wide berth as a marketing exercise and not Vegemite canon.
I only made half the recipe, and it worked very well, as would doubling the amount.
Vegemite and Cheese Scrolls makes 20-24
- 2 1/4 cups self raising flour, sifted
- 30g butter, cubed
- salt and pepper if desired
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup grated tasty cheese
Preheat the oven to 200*C and grease and line a tray.
Serve right away. Or, keep in an airtight container for a day or two. Delicious!!
