Mini Cheese Oregano Roll-ups

Dedicating this post to the great man that left for heavenly abode over the weekend – his influence was far reached, irrespective of caste, creed and color and his absence will be heavily missed. RIP Mr. Nelson Mandela!

Going off to today’s recipe, it is a very simple snack that could be put together in a jiffy, when you really don’t have time in hand. Instead of yeast, baking powder is used so there is no waiting period involved. When I saw this recipe in one of the BBC Good Food ME issues, I decided to try it and was not disappointed. The original recipe only had the paprika and cheddar, I added in the oregano for little more flavor. You can play in with the seasoning as you want…
