Introduction: Cheesy Herb Buns
These homemade cheese buns are yummy, healthy and fun to make! They use herbs from the garden which are a really fresh, summer flavour.
These go great with a bowl of chili, soup, eggs, or anything!
Step 1: Ingredients
Get the following ingredients ready to use:
Whole wheat flour
All purpose white flour
Active dry yeast
Fresh herbs (I used parsley, dill, cilantro, basil and chives)
Step 2: Make Bread Dough
300grams water (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp yeast
100grams whole wheat flour (about 3/4 cup)
300grams all-purpose white flour (about 2 1/2 cups)
Mix together, leave it to rest for 3 hours and then mix again. Leave it again for another 2 hours and then sprinkle with about a tablespoon of flour.
Remove from the bowl and knead on a clean surface to work out the bubbles.
Step 3: Cut and Grate
Chop up the herbs into fine bits.
Grate 100 grams of cheese.
Step 4: Make Dough Balls
Weigh out about 50 grams of dough.
Sprinkle your surface with a bit of four and roll each bun dough blog into a flat blob.
Step 5: Add Fixing
Add a small amount of cheese and herbs to the flat dough blob.
Roll up the blob ensuring the end sticks together so it doesn't unroll.
Step 6: Bake
Arrange the buns on parchment paper and cover with a tinfoil lid.
Note/tip: the tinfoil top can easily be made using a large round bowl.
Let the buns rise for 15 minutes before baking at 222C (430F) for 22 minutes.
Remove the foil cap and broil at 233C (450F) for 5 minutes to make the top golden.
Let cool, tear the buns apart and enjoy.
