MONDAY MUNCHIES - Slow Cooker Cheese & Bacon Buns


SLOW COOKER CHEESE AND BACON BUNS



Afternoon tea is hair pulling, face scrunching and a major headache for us here. Nothing I suggest is good enough, tasty enough or quick enough for my boys. Fruit, although we always have plenty is not their first choice even with lots of encouragement. Its sandwiches that are their pick, and although this sits well with me, they are not very helpful with the clean up of their "gourmet" choices because they have better things to do !
So I now provide them with an afternoon snack that is sandwich like, no mess, can be eaten on the run and keep the hungry teenagers happy.

INGREDIENTS

*4 cups self raising flour
*2 tsp dry yeast
*2 tsp Italian season
*1tbs crushed garlic
*2 cups water
*Grated cheese
*Diced bacon

Mix the flour, yeast, seasoning, garlic and water in a large bowel until it forms a sticky dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and kneed, adding a little more flour until dough is smooth and the sticky feeling is almost gone.


Break up the dough and roll into eight to ten small rolls.
Spray your slow cooker with oil and add the rolls making sure they are fitted in nice and firm. Top the rolls with grated cheese and diced bacon (to your liking).


Cook on high for two hours with a tea towel under the lid to stop moisture from touching the rolls as cooking.
Once cooked the rolls can be broken apart easily and enjoyed on their own or with filling of your
choice.
