Rose Bouquet with Ham and Cheese

Picture of Rose Bouquet with Ham and Cheese
This is a very simple recipe and just like all the simple recipes I love, it's so delicious!
The only negative thing about it is the time because it needs to rest for a couple of hours...but preparing it is actually much faster so you can just make it and do something else while you let it rest! :)

The dough is very similar to a bread dough so you probably can imagine already how good it is, and the smell during the baking is amazing!
The classic filling is ham and cheese but you can adjust it to your own taste and try endless combinations.
Everybody will love it!

And let's not forget about its look...a bouquet of roses will impress your guests!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • 400gr (3.2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 140ml (a little over 1/2 cup) milk
  • 12gr (0.42 oz) yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 50ml (3.38 tbsp) olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp salt
For the filling:
  • ham
  • cheese (any kind you like)

Step 2: The yeast first

This is a salty recipe, but you probably noticed that there is a teaspoon of salt in the list of ingredients.
This is because (in case you don't know already) the yeast is alive and needs to "eat" something sweet like sugar or honey to be able to grow. If you put the yeast in contact with salt it will most probably die and the rising of your dough won't happen.

For this reason, let's start dipping the yeast in the milk with a tsp of sugar.
Use your hands to make sure that the yeast completely melts in the milk.

Now put your flour in a bowl and add the milk/yeast mixture that you've prepared and mix everything a little.
I used a mixer but you can use your hands for the whole recipe if you don't have one.

Trying out this recipe tonight :-) I love the feel of the dough. So light and airy. Haven't popped it into the oven yet but I'm so excited I simply had to leave a comment. Will let you know how it turns out.

Oh that's great! I can't wait to know how it turned out, I am sure you'll love it!
I made these last night following your instructions and they turned out awesome:) I've just started to cook and I'm actually quite surprised how easy and fast it took me to make these bad boys!!!

I get hungry too just looking at the pictures...I wish I could make them everyday! :D
Looks delicious! Why do you let it rest once in the pan before putting them in the oven?
lindarose92 (author)  cjohnston-31 year ago
Thanks! I let it rest again to make it rise more, this is often done in similar bread/focaccia recipes :) The more the dough rises, the less heavy it will be when you eat it.
Looks really good I gotta make this

Rose, semplicemente irresistibile, da vedere e da mangiare.

Those look awesome! I love ham and cheese! How come you spread milk over the top when you bake them?
lindarose92 (author)  Penolopy Bulnick1 year ago
Thank you Nicole! I used milk to give a shinier look to it...honestly, I am not too sure if it really works, it's mostly a habit :D
Oh, nice to know. Thanks :)
