Footy wholemeal veggie roll

As you can see from the colours of my photo, our family are the St Kilda's supporters and we are very sad to say that we lost the AFL final...*sign* I made these on Saturday for the final but was too sad to post this until today.

These rolls has no the meat because I made these in the morning before going to the market and used whatever I can find in my fridge and pantry.  Just a simple wholesome footy finger food, more for kids...not for beer drinking blokes. LOL.

Here is the recipe for the rolls.

Wholemeal pastry (from my Breville Electric Mixer recipe book)
1 cup wholemeal flour
1 cup plain flour
150g butter (I use margarine)
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp milk
water (optional)

Using the electric mixer with flat blade, stir in the flour mixture into the butter. Add egg yolk and milk until combined. Lastly, add water until dough is formed.

Veggie filling
3 large potatoes, cubed (I use 8 baby ones, Red Gem)
1 large carrot, cubed
2 tbsp tomato sauce
pepper to taste
2 cup grated tasty cheese
2 eggs, hard boiled and cut into wedges

extra egg and milk mixture as egg wash (I use milk only)
sesame seeds to sprinkle

Preheat the oven to 200°C and line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

Cook potatoes and carrot in boiling water until tender, drain away the water. While the potatoes and carrot are warm, add tasty cheese and tomato sauce and pepper and mix well to combine, set aside to cool.

Roll pastry on floured surface about 30cm  x 15 cm in 3-5mm thickness. Spoon filling lengthways along centre of each rolled pastry. Fold 1 edge of pastry over and tuck in beside filling with some hard boiled egg wedges, then fold over other side to make a roll, pressing down lightly to seal. 

Repeat with remaining pastry and filling. 

Cut rolls into 3cm pieces and cut two small incisions into each roll to prevent splitting. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Bake for 35 minutes until the rolls are lightly browned and cooked through. Serve with sauce on the side. 

I didn't count the number of rolls that I have made but my son, husband and I ate almost everything and had only 8 pieces left after the footy game.

Happy Baking
