This Rolled Bread Recipe is so yummy, It can be just a snack in the afternoon or you can serve it as dinner since its filled with lots of goodies.
Also this recipe will make 2 big loaves.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE DOUGH:
– 2 cups of warm milk (110F)
– 10 grams of rapid rise yeast (1 tbsp + 1 tsp)
– 800 grams of all purpose flour (about 5 cups + 3/4 cup)
– 3/4 cup of oil ( I used olive oil)
– 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
INGREDIENTS FOR THE FILLING:
– 3 chopped tomatoes (squeezed and drained)
– 9 oz of chopped ham (you can actually add as much or as little)
– 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
– 1 cup of chopped green olives
– dry oregano (to your taste)
– Parmesan cheese (to your taste)
– salt and pepper (to your taste)
– 1 egg yolk to brush loaves
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Inside your KitchenAid Mixer bowl add half of the warm milk (1 cup), yeast and 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour, whisk to combine it and cover it with a clean kitchen Towel. Let it rest for about 30 minutes.
Add the rest of the warm milk (you might need to rewarm it), oil and salt to the mix and start your mixer on speed 2 with the hook attachment on until all combined.
Start adding the rest of the flour, cup by cup, just until the dough stops sticking to your hands. A good way to test the dough is take a little piece and squeeze it between your thumb and index finger, if it doesnt stick, the dough is ready, if it sticks add a little more flour and let the mixer keep doing the work. You need to let the mixer work your dough for at least 10 minutes on speed 2 before testing the dough.
Spray a big bowl with cooking spray and transfer the dough. Cover it with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest and rise for about 1 to 2 hours in a dry and warm place until it doubles size.
Once your dough has risen, sprinkle a little floour on a clean surface and pour the dough. Cut it in half and start rolling the 1st half with a rolling pin (not too thin) as much as you can keeping an oval shape.
Now lets add filling, spread chopped ham all over, cheese, tomatoes, olives, oregano, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and start rolling the bread. You will do the same thing with the 2nd half.
On a baking sheet lay a piece of parchment paper and lay your rolled bread (you will need 2 baking sheets since the loaves are pretty big).
Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise again in a dry and warm place for about 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Once bread has risen again, you will brush an egg wash on the top of the loaves ( 1 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water ) and to the oven they go for about 40 minutes.
You can serve this bread hot or cold, its DELICIOUS either way!
Also you can be creative with the fillings, as long as you don’t put anything too liquid, otherwise the dough wont cook inside.
