Stuffed bread (with ham and cheese)

Hello,

This is a polyvalent recipe, you can use it for breakfast, at launch time, on a picnic … It takes its time to prepare mostly because you need the yeast to do its work, and it works at its own rythm, just be patient 🙂

Ingredients:

  • ½ kg flour
  • 250 ml milk
  • 70 gr butter
  • 70 gr sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Baker’s yeast (about 5 gr, dry)
  • 250 gr ham
  • 200 gr brie cheese

Heat 250 ml of milk and 70 gr of butter until butter is dissolved and let cool until a warm temperature. Then add ½ kg of flour in a bowl through a colander, add also 70 gr of sugar, baker’s yeast, a coffee spoon of salt and the milk with butter. Mix well first with a spatula or wooden spoon and then with your hands. Once well mixed you need to knead it on a table, keep kneading it for about 10 minutes. If it is still sticky just let rest for about 20 minutes and then will be non sticky.

Let the dough rest in a bowl cover with  a cloth and let rest for at least one hour.

After that time the dough will double in volume now you have to  smash it with your hands and then with the help of a rolling pin. Just stretch the dough without hesitating too much about the shape.

Once strechted cover with 2 or 3 layers of ham. Over the ham place some sticks of brie cheese.

Fold the dough and try to cover the ends. Let rest for about 1 hour. Finally paint the bread with a whisked egg and cook in the oven at 350º F (180º C ) for 20 minutes.

Tuna and feta rolls

Hello!

I was thinking about preparing a very typical recipe: chorizos a la sidra, but as long as I want to keep my weight I decided to go for a lighter recipe, and then suddenly I think about these rolls stuffed with tuna and feta cheese. The contrast between the crispy exterior and creamy interior is really nice, but just when you finish to cook them. If you eat them at next day they won’t be crispy, but will be a good choice for example for a picnic.

Ingredients:

  • 400 gr of tuna without skin and without spines
  • Feta cheese
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • Phylo pastry
  • Soy sauce

Start cutting tuna on to stripes, tuna should be without skin and without spines. Then cut in half the stripes they should be about 3 cms. Grate 2 carrots. Cut 1 onion into strips.

Put a bit of olive oil in a pan. When oil is hot add the onion, tuna and carrots. Stir frequently and cook for about 4 – 5 minutes. There is no need to add salt, as long as soy sauce and feta cheese will add salty flavor enough. After that add soy sauce stir and cook for one or two minutes more.

Extend the phylo pastry and add a bit of tuna on it, place a piece of feta cheese on top of it. Then fold the sides of phylo pastry and roll. Cook the rolls on the oven at 350ºF (180º C) for about 20 to 25 minutes, until they turn gold. Be careful and let them get cold for 10 minutes or more, unless you want to burn your mouth.
