Our daily bread is 90% a simple white loaf from our bread machine (shame face). But once in a while, I sort of feel like I should be more creative with my bread, so I’d spend ages trawling through books to find a fancy recipe, drool over it and decides it’s too hard for me.
But many months ago, I decided to be truly creative and just made a basic white loaf dough (by the bread machine, of course), proof it, knock back, shape it into rolls, egg wash them, sprinkle cheese on top, et voila! These babies are born:
Since then I’ve been making cheesy rolls when I feel like it (normally when I have loads of cheese in the fridge needs using up). It is quick, very yummy and makes a perfect lunch.
- 300ml lukewarm water
- 15ml veg oil/butter
- 500g white bread flour
- 1.5tsp salt
- 1tsp sugar
- 1 egg
- grated cheddar cheese
- Put water, oil, bread flour, salt and sugar into your bread machine and put on the dough cycle.
- When the dough is done, take it out and leave it in an oiled bowl to proof, covered with a tea towel.
- Wait till it\’s doubled in size. (Normally 45 minutes).
- Knock the dough back, divide into 9 rolls.
- Let it proof again till it\’s doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 200’C.
- Beat an egg and brush on all the rolls.
- Sprinkle each roll with grated cheese.
- Bake for about 20 mins or until the top is golden.
Hmm… and they look lovely in my bread basket too! I should be having them with ham, slice of emmental, chilli jam and salad! x 🙂
