Bacon & Cheddar Damper

+1 Edgell Corn

Any Aussie camper knows how delicious damper is, but it’s also a fantastic snack to cook at home in a pizza oven or under the hood of the BBQ. We’ve added corn to this bacon and cheddar variation for small bursts of sweetness. This recipe is always a favourite with the whole family!

Original recipe by ERIN MADE THIS | 1.1.16



  • 2 rashers of middle bacon, trimmed and chopped
  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • 80g butter, chopped and chilled
  • 100g vintage cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 cup water


Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a flat baking tray with baking paper.

Place the chopped bacon in a cold non-stick frypan and place on a medium heat.

Cook the bacon until crispy. Set aside to cool.

Place the flour in a large mixing bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips.

Once the mixture resembles bread crumbs, fold through cheese, chives and cooked bacon.


Add the water and stir with a wooden spoon until the mix forms a rough dough, add additional water if required and take care not to overbeat.

Form into a round loaf approximately 20cm and score an X on the top.

Bake for 50 minutes until brown and cooked through.

Serve warm with butter.


Form the dough into 8 individual rolls and bake close together on the lined tray for 25-30 minutes.
