I was looking for something quick to eat and great for fulfill our 'sahur' menu this ramadhan. In our family, bread is a must in breakfast time. But you know, sometimes I'm boring with plain white bread...
hmm..what to do? Cheesy bread.. Why not?
So, if you need something cheesy for breakfast or brunch? Try this one.. With rosemary herb flavor in this soft bread, I'm sure you will get same experience with me... Have a try! @(^,^)@
• 4 tsp instant yeast
• 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 ½ cup warm milk
• 1 cup flour
Mix and stir all ingredients I until blended , cover with kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until fluffy & bubbly approximately 30 minutes
• 4 ½ cups flour
• 2 medium eggs, beaten
• 150 g cold butter, cut into small squares
• ½ tsp bread improver
• 1 tsp fine salt
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
• About 300 grams of cheddar cheese for filling, cut into small cubes
• Fresh rosemary for toppings, roughly chopped
• Butter to spread toppings, soften at room temperature
Once the ingredients I fluffy, mix in all ingredients II and knead until smooth and elastic. The process can use a machine or manually by hand (like I did).
After dough is smooth and elastic (no problem if it's a bit sticky in your fingers,and you can lightly dust your finger with flour if you want), cover with kitchen towel or plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for ± 60 minutes until fluffy and double in volume.
Punch to remove air from the dough. Divide the dough into some small-same size-balls. You can weighed them up to perform same large circle.
Either you can use my way: Shape the dough lengthwise like long pipe , then cut into 10 ~ 15 pieces and shape into a ball.
Flatten each ball and fill with cheese to taste, cover and form a ball again. Do the same thing until dough finished.
Grease your round pan with vegetable oil, place balls on it and make space among them-like the picture. Cover with kitchen towel and let it rest again for about 30 minutes.
