School holidays are officially over. Time to get baking. This is a simple recipe I’ve had bookmarked for the longest time from Nicole Avery’s Planning with Kids blog. Really easy to make, freeze, then pop into lunch boxes to defrost for break time. And an easy recipe to make with the kids too.

You can literally use anything you have in the fridge or pantry. Make them sweet or savoury. I made two types in this test batch – a salami and cheese, and a nutella version to satisfy my son’s love of salami on anything and a sweet treat for my daughter.


  • Puff Pastry (I used two sheets for this test batch, but you can make more obviously)
  • Salami, cut into bite sized pieces
  • Grated cheese (I used cheddar)
  • Nutella

What to do

  1. Preheat oven to 190C. 
  2. Get your pastry out to defrost.
  3. For the salami version – sprinkle grated cheese across the sheet and top with cut salami 
  4. For the nutella – spread all over the sheet. 
  5. Carefully roll the pastry from one end to the other in a log shape and pinch the ends to close
  6. Cut into approximately 1 inch pieces along the log. 
  7. Place onto lined baking tray with some room between each for spreading. 
  8. Bake for around 15 minutes. Voila!
