This easy recipe uses store-bought rolls to make your own cheesy pull-apart bread.
Roll out a tray of these for a footy-watching crowd and you’ll be more popular than Richie scoring a last minute try! 


  • 12 soft bread rolls – store-bought
    (I use small soft white buns or sliders from the local supermarket).

  • 3/4 cup onion jam or relish 

  • 300 g shaved ham

  • 1 cup cheese – tasty or whatever 

  • 3 medium Eggs

  • 50 g melted butter

  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp dry English mustard powder

  • 1 cup grated cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking dish that will fit the buns snugly, with baking paper. 
  • Split each bun in half horizontally, or do this as a whole unit if they’re all stuck together. 
  • Dollop each bottom half with onion jam then top with plenty of ham and cheese. Place the tops on and cut a cross in each top so the topping will soak in. Fit the buns into the lined dish so that they’re touching. 
  • In a bowl whisk together eggs, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, salt and mustard and stir in the cheese. Spoon this mixture over the buns.
  • Bake for about 8-10 minutes until the topping is golden and bubbling.
  • Serve immediately, with plenty of napkins!
