These tasty rolls make good lunch box fillers and freeze well too.

Makes 15 rolls

175ml milk
1tsp lemon juice
1tsp white vinegar
3 cups self-raising flour – plus more for dusting
1 Tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
5ml salt
85g butter, softened
1 egg, beaten to glaze

1 Tbsp olive oil
250g bacon, diced
½ onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp mixed herbs
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp BBQ sauce
45ml pizza base sauce
50g Cheddar Cheese
50g mozzarella cheese

Pre heat the oven to 150°C. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the bacon and onions. Add the spices, garlic, salt and pepper and BBQ sauce, then sear until bacon in cooked. Set aside to cool. Now prepare the dough: mix the milk, vinegar and lemon juice in a jug. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl or stand mixer with the dough hook attached. Add the butter, mix until a fine crumb. Slowly pour in the blended milk, vinegar and lemon juice, to form a soft dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Roll out to about 6mm thick. Spread the pizza sauce across the rolled dough. Cover with your bacon mixture and top with cheese. Tightly roll up the dough. Cut into 2.5cm-thick circles. Place on a pre lined baking try. Lightly brush with beaten egg.

Bake for 15mins until golden brown.
