Cheese rolls




  • 200g tasty cheese, grated
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup Wattie's Tomato Sauce 50% Less Sugar
  • 10 slices white or wholemeal sandwich sliced bread
  • 50g butter, melted (optional)


  1. Mix together grated cheese, onion and Wattie’s Tomato Sauce 50% Less Sugar.
  2. To make bread easier to roll up, give each slice a light roll with a rolling pin.
  3. Spread the cheese mixture over each slice of bread and roll up to enclose filling. Secure with a toothpick if necessary. Brush with melted butter if wished.
  4. Place on a tray under a preheated hot grill and grill until golden, turning once during cooking until golden and filling is hot. 
  5. Serve while the rolls are still hot.


Use a lower fat cheese like Edam or Mainland Noble cheese if wished.
