Making & baking

Preheat your oven to 220oC and put a piece of baking paper on a low sided or flat metal baking tray

Put the butter, self-raising flour, oats, salt & pepper into the bowl of the Kenwood Chef and use the Creaming beater to mix together.

Use the Food Processor attachment and coarse grating disc to grate the cheese, turn out into the Kenwood Chef bowl reserving a little to sprinkle on top. Grate the apple and turn out into the Kenwood Chef bowl and then grate the beetroot and turn out into the Kenwood Chef bowl.

Using the Creaming beater again stir in the grated beetroot, apple, most of the cheese, crispy bacon, mustard and egg.

Use your hands to make into rough balls. Put the balls on a lined baking tray.

Slash a deep cross in the middle of each ball of dough, brush with the remaining egg and sprinkle with a few oats.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until golden on top.
