Did you know, the fresh-looking vegemite scrolls you see at the bakery are actually really easy to make? You’d be surprised to know that you most likely already have the ingredients in your pantry too. So why not save yourself $$ and whip up these quick and easy vegemite scrolls.
These tasty scrolls are a great snack to have on the go especially on days when your activity levels are high. They are a great way to fuel your kids before and after sport, and only cost $0.25c per serve to make. Each scroll contains a good source of protein at over 9g per serve and a decent amount of fibre at ~5g per serve. This means that they will keep you full for longer and are a great alternative to more refined packaged snacks.
The other benefit of making them yourself is you can change up the filling to what you like. So if you aren’t a great lover of vegemite try swapping it for tomato paste and adding ham and pineapple along with the cheese.
