Cheesy Foldovers

This was a quick and simple way to use up a bit of leftover plastic/processed cheese, but would work with more flavoursome cheeses as well.


  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder
  • 85ml hot water
  • 1 tsp marmite
  • 2 slices of cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, mustard and sunflower oil in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Combine the water and marmite in a cup and mix until the marmite is disolved.
  4. Add most of the water to the dry ingredients and mix in a bowl. Add just enough water to get a sticky dough.
  5. Kneed the dough for a few minutes and it should start to dry out and become firmer.
  6. Split the dough into two lumps and roll out each lump into a flat disc about 1/2 cm thick.
  7. Place a slice of cheese in the middle of each disc and fold the edges of the dough over, using water on the edges to seal the joins together.
  8. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until nice and crisp.
  9. Serve with some pickle or chutney.
