A great afternoon snack! If you don't have a favoured pizza sauce use tomato paste and add some dried Italian herbs. Can be served hot or cold...great for the lunch box.
- Preheat oven to 200c.
- Combine the chopped capsicum, ham and cheese in bowl.
- Spread the sauce onto each sheet of pastry, leaving a 2cm border along one side, and sprinkle the capsicum mixture over the top.
- Roll up the pastry to enclose the filling (like a swiss roll), leaving the plain edge until last.
- Brush the edge lightly with water and fold to seal.
- Cut each roll into 1cm rounds (use serrated bread knife) and place on lined oven trays.
- Bake for 20 min or until golden.
My son had to make a recipe for the international food project in his history class. He was able to choose any recipe from the areas they studied this year, He chose this one. It was really easy & was fun to do with my son. I see this will be one he will want to make over & over again! Its so easy the kids can really put it together by themselves all they will need you for is to have you cut the food and put it in & take it out of the oven.(unless your kids are old enough to do those things themselves. Only few changes I advise is to make the scrolls 1/2inch instead of 1inch to get the 24-36 servings. To convert the cooking temp in (F)= 395 degrees. Oh & in the US if you dont know what a capsicum is, its a red peper. (this really was a challenge since I didnt think to look it up before I went shopping and no one in the stores seemed to have any idea what I was requesting-lol. You do need to spray the pan to keep it from sticking. Other then those MINOR things it really was quite a great recipe to make. Enjoy!
these were very good! I followed the recipe exactly, and the amounts are spot on. I added a little chopped pineapple to the 2nd roll, and that was good too. I mis-read the instructions, and cut them nearly an inch thick instead of a cm thick, but they still came out very well. A point worth making, dont roll too tight, otherwise the centre doesnt cook right. thanks for a keeper!
We go to our neighbours every Thursday night, to watch Survivor on the 'Big Screen'. I like to take something with me each week, and after several sweet items, thought these would be a nice change. Well......these WILL be made again. So easy to make and the taste is excellent.....hot or room temperature. Thanks Stardustannie. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #34
