This is a savoury version of elephant ears. I came up with it when I wanted to bake a simple yet tasty appetiser for my family. The herbs and cheese can be varied to your liking. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! :) The dough was inspired by this recipe: Elephant Ears


  1. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, herbs and chili powder.
  2. In another bowl combine milk and 2 tbs of oil. Add to the dry ingredients and mix into a dough. If it is too dry add the 3rd tbs of oil.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a soft dough.
  4. Either pat it down into a rectangle or roll it out. It should be about 1 cm/0.5 inches thick.
  5. Spread with the cheese and roll up starting on the longer end.
  6. Slice into 10 slices and place on a paper-lined baking sheet. Pat down gently.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for about 15 minutes.

Made this for the French Forum Herb of the Month, Rosemary 2010. Great little appetizers, snacks. Easy and quick. This would be great with soup. I just made them as a snack for a friend and of course tried a couple. Really nice. I also grated some cheese right over the top for baking. Thx, Kim

Tasty little morsels w/a nice savory blend of spices. I did add in almost a t. of garlic powder and also sprinkled some parmesan cheese over top b/f baking. Made for Spice of the month in the french forum - Rosemary.

Loula,I love this! I'm gonna use them for DDs birthday party. So fast,ingredients always on hand and so tasty! I used a Zaar salt mix. I was thinking to make something similar with puff pastry but these are better as they're low in fat (I've only used 2 T). Can't wait to try it with other flavors.I'm thinking pesto would be nice with it. Thank you for a great snack/appetizer.I got 15.
