These Cheese And Onions Rolls from Morrisons are proper nice, they're like sausage rolls but with cheese instead of meat and have got a delish flavour when you warm them through in the oven.
They come in all sorts of packs and you can also buy them on the deli, the one in our fridge has got 4 rolls in it and I think it cost about £1.25. The rolls don't look that nice when you look at them before they've gone in the oven because they're proper pale, when they're cooked they look wicked though and the pastry has gone nice and shiney. The pastry doesn't look greasy and has puffed up nice on the top of the rolls, the smell is like a mix of buttery pastry and warm cheese. You can deffo smell onion in it too but it brings the cheesey smell out better instead of being a smell all of it's own.
The rolls are DELISH! The pastry is loads nicer than the pastry Morrisons use on their sausage rolls, it's got a lighter flavour and doesn't feel all greasy and stodgy. It's crisped up nice on the top and that means you'll end up with flakes of pastry all over you every time you have a bite! lol The cheese flavour is lovely, it's mixed with something apart from just onion because it hasn't gone like pure melted cheese and is like a soft but firm texture. It doesn't exactly take any chewing but it's deffo more filling than if it was plain cheese on it's own because then it would just go flat.
The onion taste is quite strong, I love how good it goes with the cheese because they both bring the flavours of each other out. There are tiny bits of onion mixed in with the cheese and they're cooked perfect so that you might not know you was eating them unless you were looking out for them. I think these go best with a bit of bbq sauce because that goes perfect with cheese, you don't need salt and vinegar because these rolls have got a bit of a salty taste anyway and it can get quite strong after a bit.
Recommended..... a delish change from sausage rolls!!!
I am not really a lover of pastry based snacks as I find them too bloating. However last weekend we were away from home and I called in to Morrison's to buy a few things to keep my children happy in the car. As it was near to closing time there were several items reduced for a quick sale. On the bakery counter I spotted bags of cheese and onion rolls for just 28 p for 4 rolls. These normally sell for 25p each so I thought that I would give them a try.
The rolls are a generous size and look exactly like a sausage roll. They are made using red Leicester and cheddar with the addition of sliced onion. The information on the bag suggests these are best eaten hot but as we were traveling this was not an option. Each roll will give you 229 calories and over 16 grams of fat, so these are certainly not a healthy option for a snack!
The rolls were received hungrily by my children and they both managed to finish their roll. The taste test verdict was a bit mixed. Both children said they liked the taste of these rolls but both complained they were a bit too salty. I agree about the salt but thought they tasted reasonable. The cheese is quite strong and I couldn't really detect any onion. The pastry was crispy and flaky. I suspect these would have been much nicer had I been able to heat them up. However overall they get thumbs up from me! However as they are such an unhealthy snack I won't be buying these on a regular basis.
If you fancy trying these then they are only available from Morrison's. They can be frozen and eaten either hot or cold. They would be good to take on a picnic when we next see the sun!
I got these out of Morrisons last week as I felt like something a bit different. I like Sausage Rolls for what they are, but I like Cheese and Onion wrapped in Pastry as well, and find it is filling and no quite as greasy as Sausages.
Not sure if these were on offer, but this pack only cost me 50p. The pack contained 2 alright sized Rolls. This was at the chiller section next to the other Pastry products.
The packaging was alright. The Rolls were in a plastic tray and had a plastic bag type covering. You get a nice picture on the front of the product, and it all sees alright. Although these are fresh you can freeze on day of purchase and use within 1 month.
You can eat these cold, which didn't appeal to me. I thought the Cheese would seem a bit rubbery and solid, so I heat them up. They took 20 minutes in the oven and this melted the Cheese inside, and the Pastry was golden and quite crisp.
Each roll has 229 calories and 16.3g of fat.
These were alright for the price but not that exciting. The Cheese was pretty strong, but that could be because it was a mixture of Cheddar and Leicester. The Cheese was quite thick and not too runny. Although there was a good sprinkling of Onion, you didn't get that much Onion tang from the raw Onion taste. The Pastry was nice enough, but a bit greasy.
Alright, but a little greasy and lay a bit heavy in the stomach. A produc worth the try for the money and you can make your own mind up!
I love anything made with pastry and the other day I nipped into Morrisons on the way home from the spa to get my Mother a bunch of flowers. I had a quick nosey around the store as my Step dad was impatiently waiting in the car for me and the check outs were rammed full! I spotted these and at 25p each (50p for the pack of two rolls) I had to get them!
Light green and see-through clear plastic wrapper and on the front I'm told they are Morrisons 2 Cheese & Onion Rolls and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there, I'm told they cook in the oven and are freezable and the best before date is clearly displayed. On the back of the packet ingredients and allergy advice is given, along with a full nutritional low down, I'm told how to heat them (20 minutes from chilled or 30 minutes from frozen), I'm told how to store them and contact details for Morrisons are given. Inside the outer packet the two 'rolls' are in a see through plastic tray for security. Informative wrapper this is and it's easy to open etc.
Well I feel calling them rolls is a bit misleading rally! They are like sausage rolls in appearance (to be fair), small and well sealed but I think of them more like slices! Anyway they are pastry and that pastry is quite thick and unmessy, light golden in colour and sort of latticed to the top and smooth to the bottom. They hold together well and of course you can eat them hot or cold to which I ate one hot and one cold lol.
The only difference between being served hot and cold is that heated through you get melted cheese and the pastry becomes a little flakier of course but that's it really.
I found these to be no better than ok. The pastry was rather bland really and unseasoned and a bit mushy and stodgy in the mouth when chewing it and didn't taste of all that much. It was just a bit dry at first and boring. The filling though was plentiful and a bright yellow in colour having been made up cheddar cheese, red Leicester, cheese sauce, cheese powder and egg powder (and of course a few other things besides). It wasn't a really strong cheesy taste but you did know it was cheese. Again it was a bit mushy and soggy and I preferred my roll warmed up to be honest but really all round these are just a tad dull and boring...and bland! Economy buy though and not awful anyway!
