  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F) gas 5. Cut the bacon into small pieces. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon for 5-10 minutes, until cooked. Add the spring onions and cook gently until they are soft. Leave to cool slightly.

  • Step 2

    Unroll the pastry sheet, spread with the red pesto and scatter over the bacon and spring onions. Top with grated cheddar. Carefully roll the pastry, starting with a long side so that you end up with a long, thin sausage shape.

  • Step 3

    Cut the sausage shape into 20 circles and put onto a baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and risen. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
