About Cheese Roll

As I said earlier, here I have shared a recipe of Cheese Roll which is basically a healthy version of a bread roll with a cheese stuffing and baked. So, there’s the usual fried version of a Bread Roll and then there’s this baked Bread Cheese Roll.

Of course, fried food has its own charm but there’s absolutely no harm in having baked food, once a while. This not only balances out the calorie intake. In fact, you don’t have to really exercise harder as you do after consuming sinfully fried snacks.

However, this is a Cheese Roll recipe, which means it has a decent quantity of cheese in it. So, you have to put some effort in burning that part of calorie intake. But not so much as compared to the fried rolls, as this one is baked and is much more wholesome that way.

Now if you ask me which cheese is best for this baked Bread Cheese Roll, I will say, use either cheddar or processed cheese. But in case you are wanting to experiment it with mozzarella cheese to get a stringy, gooey effect, then go for it. You can also make these rolls with any bread variety.

In addition to the bread, cheese and potatoes, other ingredients that go in the stuffing are your usual everyday pepper powder, cumin powder, coriander leaves and salt. You can brush the Cheese Roll with oil or even butter.

I often make this delicious Bread Cheese Roll as a quick snack on days when I prefer to bake, rather than sauté or fry. Baking or grilling is better as I just need to place the food in the oven and let it get done.

This recipe of Cheese Roll shared here is just a basic method and you can choose the stuffing you want. I usually go for the classic potato-cheese combination. Sometimes, I also add some boiled green peas, cooked carrots or green beans in the filling.

You can choose the veggies you want. You can also opt for flavors you prefer by using your choice of herbs and spices. This recipe is a super hit with kids too, as its low on the spice quotient.

Serve the crispy golden baked Bread Cheese Roll as an evening snack or as a brunch with tomato ketchup or coriander chutney. They also make for a great starter snack.

Baking Cheese Roll

12. Prepare all the Bread Cheese Rolls this way and place on a baking tray. No need to grease the tray.

Lightly brush some oil on the rolls. Don’t brush too much oil as the bread absorbs a lot of oil at room temperature.

The bread I used was crumbly and not easy to roll. If there are tiny tears, then no issues.

Also remember to preheat your oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees C/390 degrees F before you bake these rolls.

  4. While moistening the edges of the bread slices, you can either use a brush to do so or dip your fingertips in water and then moisten the edges.
