Left-over Rolls for the Kids

Cooking for kids.

Just a little FYI; cooking for kids is totally different to cooking four kids (I know the more astute amongst you may be raising your eyebrows right now at my barely copacetic use of the English language and this little jab at the less grammar inclined amongst use, but fuck, even I can sort out that kind of English so I’ll take that little jab at whom ever I want). While the former is widely accepted as an almost (oh yes I did mean to say almost. Wittysocialcommentaryisthebestshitever) daily occurrence for most parents out there, the later is, well, more a project that would be appropriate for a family gathering of cannibals or other like minded beings… possibly with a penchant for the human veal…

I shall end this short foray into the world of illiterate cannibals quickly though, as I have no desire to find myself under investigation by the AFP… again.

This is some damn easy using up your left-overs but still maintaining a sense of cessation from the original meal type cooking, and let’s face it; there’s not many things out there that don’t taste damn fine wrapped in puff pastry and baked in a moderate oven for 20-30 minutes or until beautiful and golden. All you need is some frozen puff pastry sheets, some left over vegetables from last night’s dinner (like you would use for bubble and squeak or hash if you were in the US of A), some leftover roast meaty goodness or a bit of bacon, cheese, an egg and about 15 minutes to put it all together.


You’re welcome.

Roll them up just like this

Cut into two or three sections per roll, egg wash and hit them with sesame seeds

LEFT-OVER ROLLS FOR THE KIDS (and you too, if you’re keen)

4 cups cooked vegetables (preferably not just zucchini and brussels sprouts… potato is a good start… peas… corn, etc), roughly chopped
1-2 cups cooked meat, bacon or smoked sausage, shredded/chopped
1 cup grated cheddar or a cheese that your kids are into
1 egg, plus 1 egg extra for egg basting
A splash of milk
4 sheets frozen puff pastry
Sesame seeds, to top
Tomato relish or sauce (ketchup) to serve

• Preheat oven to 180C
• Take the pastry sheets out to defrost
• Combine meat, vegetables, cheese and egg, and give it a good mix with the fingers on the end of your hands. Mush it up a bit
• Divide the mix between the four sheets of pastry just like the pictures show you
• Roll into big sausage roll type things
• Transfer to a lined baking tray with the seem side down, and cut into 2-3 segments per roll
• Beat egg with a splash of milk
• Use egg wash to baste the rolls, sprinkle with sesame and bake for 20-30 minutes until golden, puffy and delicious smelling

    Dude, fucking GENIUS.
    And them pictures are looking mighty, mighty fine my friend.

    1. Genius is not a term that should be thrown around lightly but, since it’s you and I know you don’t fuck around, I am gonna take that compliment. Cheers D 🙂

        I’m seriously looking at this shit like whyyy the fuck haven’t I thought of this.
        Compliments all yours my friend 😊

  2. Looks SO delicious! I’m still waiting for someone to come up with an amazing (and easy) way to make gluten free puff pastry……you should get on that. 😉 I can see that I’ve missed all kinds of your posts. I’m following you, but for some reason your posts are not showing up in my reader. I will try to unfollow and follow again to see if that resolves it. I hate to miss them. I’ve never seen one thing you’ve posted that I wouldn’t love!

    1. Aw shit, you are too kind.
      GF puff – I know. It’s a fricking hard one …
      Blame the malfunctions on wordpress, mine does all sorts of funky shit to me!!!
      Cheers again. 🙂

    GF Puff….a mystical freakin unicorn (or is that dragon?) if there ever was one. These little puffs however, look well tasty. Super glad that no kids (of the human variety) were consumed in the making of these rolls.

    1. Heheh. GF puff is a mystical creature indeed, my friend! 🙂

    Yep, I would totally be keen on these… definitely not letting the kids have all the left-over roll fun! And thanks for the grammar lesson, cannibalism artfully avoided. Goodness me. You’re becoming cultured, Grazza.

    1. Yes. My instructor says I’m coming along nicely. Next I shall learn how to walk with a book on my head and the correct way to host an afternoon tea 🙂

        Haha, when you perfect it, can you teach me?? I’ll bring scones…

      2. Let’s just eat the scones eh… And then we’ll get some beer! 🙂
