Pin Wheels for the Kids - Recipe
Yesterday at work, I cooked up a bunch of pin wheels for the kid's afternoon tea. Now, when I say a "bunch", I really mean about 120 of the little buggers!
But the kids absolutely love them , they would definitly feature in the top 5 favourite foods to eat at OSHC.
For those of who how aren't aware, I work at a primary school as the cook for OSHC (Out of School Hourse Care).
We have capacity for up to 100 kids per day but average between 65-85.
Here is a list of previous posts I have written about the food I cook at OSHC:
What are Pin Wheels?
I had never heard of them until earlier this year when a co-worker suggested we have them one afternoon and showed me how to make them.
They're actually quite simple, which is always a bonus with an already popular snack.
What You Need
10 sheets puff pastry
1/2 kg diced bacon or ham (shredded or shaved is fine)
tomato sauce (I use a store bought pasta sauce for a bit more flavour)
1kg grated cheese
(Remember that I'm making enough to feed about 70 pre and primary school aged children so if you're just making some for the kids at home you should adjust the quantities accordingly!)
What To Do
Separate sheets of pastry and lay out individually on table
Set oven temperature to High (220-240 degrees celcius)
Evenly spread bacon accross 6 of the pastry sheets (leave about 2cm gap at one edge of each sheet)
Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over the remaining 4 pastry sheets (again, leave a 2cm gap at one edge of each sheet)
Sprinkle grated cheese evenly over all 10 sheets of pastry (keep egde gap clear)
Starting at the opposite side to the 2cm gap edge, roll each sheet into a log.
Slice each log so you get roughly 10-12 pieces.
Lay pieces flat on greased/lined baking trays and cook for aproximately 10-15 minutes.
Pin Wheels are done when they appear crispy and golden brown.
So there you have it - Pin Wheels. Of course you can put any filling you like in them, as long you are able to roll it up and cut into slices you can pretty muh make what ever flavour you like.
Thanks for Reading.
