Here is a recipe used during the war as a fun snack… I made these today after I had observed the Remembrance Day silence and while I listened to the full Remembrance Day service from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, on my local radio station, CKBW. After the service I watched some of the veteran videos which I have on DVD… Please click here for more thoughts on this

I have been following for a little while and hope to do this in the near future.. however.. i HATE marmite!! lol do you have any suggestions for what else might taste good in this recipe? Thanks!!
HATE MARMITE???!!!! Hehehe
I bet that grated cheese and some dried herbs on a thin spread of margarine/butter would be nice before you roll it up !!
I make these all the time! my kids love them, but my husband doesn’t like marmite so I use tomato puree instead. I tend to spread half the dough with marmite and the other half with tomato then roll it up that way i don’t have to make 2 batches!
What is marmite? I live in the US so I am not familiar w/ the term.
Marmite is a by-product of brewing and is a very nutritious yeast extract that tastes kind of tangy… was used as a flavour enhancer in stews etc or scraped on bread and butter. I adore it 🙂 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marmite
yummy yeah! id love to eat it from the screen YUMMY
I would substitute the marmite for tomato sauce and make pizza rolls.
how about jam to make jam roly poly but in slices instead !
Being an Aussie I made mine with Vegemite and my gosh I kinda inhaled at least 5 while they were still warm out of the oven. SO MORISH!!

wow i did not know that deliciosus
Oh my goodness, I didn’t know these existed outside of my house. Everytime I make a pastry dish I use the trimmings to make these, have done for years. It was just a waste nothing idea that came to me one day .I even made them as apéros for My employers when I worked as a cook in a castle for 14 years. They and their guests were in awe of them . And now I know what they are called (•‿•)
