Cheese and herb Pull apart Bread

                 After a huge success in baking garlic rolls, I wanted to try out another variety bread! Got the recipe for the dough from edible garden and added my own filling! Tasted so good and was extremely soft.

                 A lovely snack when your hungry or can be served for breakfast as well! Just pop it into the microwave as and when you need it :)


INGREDIENTS:
2 cups of all purpose flour 
1 cup wheat flour
1 tsp of sugar
2 tsp of yeast (instant or active dry )
1/2 cup of warm milk
1 tsp of salt
25 gm of butter, at room temperature
1 tsp of garlic paste or finely minced garlic
3/4 cup of milk, at room temperature

for the filling;
20 gm of melted butter
2-3 tbsp pesto
1 tsp of red chilli flakes
1/2 cup of grated cheese (I used cheddar)
2 tbsp thai chilli sauce
dried oregano to season
2 chicken sausages, cut thinly (optional)





PROCESS:
  • Mix the warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Set aside for about 5 mins until frothy.
  • Meanwhile mix the flour, salt, garlic, and butter. Add the frothed yeast mixture to this and start kneading.
  • Add the 3/4 cup milk and knead further until a soft slightly sticky dough takes shape. Knead for about 3 mins. Add more milk if you need.
  • Shape into a ball as much as possible and turn into a well-oiled (with olive oil) bowl. Turn to coat the dough and wrap with cling-film. Set aside for about an hour or until it doubles in size
  • Once risen, punch down the dough and roll on a floured surface into a large, roughly 12"x12" square. Brush with melted butter. 

  • Spread the pesto and chilli sauce. Sprinkle the chilli flakes and oregano.  Lay the sausage pieces. Sprinkle the cheese.

  • Cut into 6 strips and stack on top of each other, filling side on top. Press on top so that the cheese and the other fillings stick together and do not fall out.


  • Cut into further 6-7 stacks and arrange cut side down in a well-greased loaf pan or pyrex
  •   Cover and keep in a warm place for about an hour for the 2nd rise.

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F/180C and bake for 25-30 mins until golden brown.
  • As soon as out of the oven, brush the hot bread with milk generously and let it cool down before serving.
