FOR THE BREAD DOUGH 325g strong white bread flour, plus
extra for dusting 175g rye flour 7g sachet or 1½ tsp fast-action dried
yeast 1 tbsp rapeseed oil, plus a bit extra 2 tsp golden caster sugar 4 rosemary sprigs, leaves picked and
chopped FOR THE FILLING 1 tbsp rapeseed oil 6 rashers streaky bacon, chopped 140g mature cheddar, grated 250g pack cooked beetroot (not in vinegar), drained and grated – make sure you use gloves
To make the dough, tip the flours, yeast, oil, sugar, rosemary, 1½ tsp salt and 325ml warm water into a large mixing bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon, then use your hands to bring the mixture together, adding a little extra flour if it feels too sticky or a drizzle of extra water if too dry. Tip onto your work surface and knead the dough for 10 mins, or until it feels soft and springy.
Put the dough in a clean, lightly oiled bowl and cover with oiled cling film. Leave somewhere warm to rise for 2 hrs, or until doubled in size. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the bacon. Cook until crisp, then tip onto a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain and cool. Line 8 holes of a muffin tin with squares of baking parchment, or lightly grease with oil. Set aside.
Tip the dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface. Knead to knock out the air bubbles, then roll to a large rectangle, roughly 35 x 45cm. Sprinkle half the cheese over the surface and top with the bacon bits, beetroot, then the remaining cheese. Starting from one of the long edges, tightly roll the bread into a long cylinder, then cut into 8 pieces. Pop the bread scrolls, cut-side up, into the muffin tin holes. Cover the whole tin with oiled cling film and leave to rise for 30 mins or until doubled in size.
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Uncover scrolls and brush with a little oil. Bake for 30 mins until golden. Leave to cool on a wire rack for 20 mins. Eat within 1 day.
