Bacon and Cheese Crispy Pinwheels

Bacon and Cheese Crispy Pinwheels ~ These scrumptious Pinwheels are crispy, more like a biscuit, and together with the filling makes a delicious appetizer or party snack which will fly off your party platter

I usually make my Pinwheels using freshly made bread dough which I get from our supermarket. They make a couple of batches every morning and is a wonderful short cut, especially for me hating to make my own yeast based doughs.

To change things up a little, I used Short Crust Pastry this time and these scrumptious Bacon and Cheese Crispy Pinwheels were the result.

These have a very, very different texture than normal Pinwheels which we all found way more delicious. It is almost like an over sized stuffed savory cracker. Crunchy, gooey and chewy all come together in one of these Bacon and Cheese Crispy Pinwheels.

Serve these Pinwheels as an appetizer {slice a little thicker in this case}, snacks at a party and especially an awesome treat to munch on while watching your favorite game !

After baking, I sprinkled the hot Bacon and Cheese Crispy Pinwheels with a little more Cheese, as it just looks more inviting and well, we are cheese freaks in this family.

I had about two or three Pinwheels leftover from the previous day, which I kept in a sealed container. They softened up a little overnight, but not much and I definitely prefer them the freshly baked crispy way we had them the day before.

I made a double batch as the kids were home as well, but the recipe is so easy to double or even triple when you need lots of snacks. You can also slice them into thinner slices, but be sure to chop the Bacon and Onions a bit finer to make slicing easier.

Bacon and Cheese Crispy Pinwheels



10 - 12 Pinwheels

INGREDIENTS:

1 Roll Frozen Short Crust Pastry, defrosted
1 cup Bacon Bits, cooked
2 Large Spring Onions, thinly sliced
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 Egg
1 TB Milk

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 190 deg C (375 deg F) - line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2.) Unroll the Pastry on a large piece of plastic wrap.
3.) Combine the Bacon, Onions and Cheese - sprinkle evenly over the Pastry - press down gently - roll-up the Pastry Swiss Roll style - cover with the plastic wrap and place in the freezer compartment for 10 minutes.
4.) Remove from the freezer - whisk together the Egg and Milk - brush over the roll - cut roll in slices of about 2.5cm {1 inch} thicknesses - place on the prepared baking sheet - bake 20 - 25 minutes or until golden and done.

Serve warm or cold.

  11. Someone ask what was short crust pastry.......not sure either, but you can use RHODES frozen rolls.....just thaw out the rolls and roll it out and add the ingredients and roll up the dough like you would for cinnamon rolls and cut in circles and bake.....they had a recipe on their website......really neat.....
