Sausage Bread

Monday, January 17, 2011

Remember my first time making bread? It turned out to be this funny looking ones. Since then, we no longer buy breads; I have been baking breads about 1-2 times every weeks.
After many practices, below is what my sausage bread looks like:

The process of making the twist:

Divide the dough into 9-10 portions:

Roll the dough

Put the sausage in the middle then slices the dough into 5 portions each side:

Bring one portion to the middle

Followed by the other side:

Continue 'till the end

Fresh breads from the oven


Another variation of this sausage bread  will be to add some pizza topping (mozzarella cheese, tomato paste, onion) and Voila it becomes:

Printable Recipe
Ingredients: to make 9-10 breads
270 grams bread flour
65 sugar
a pinch of salt
1 sachet instant dry yeast
2 egg yolks - lightly beaten
150 ml of warm milk
40 grams butter - at room temperature
5 sausages, each divided into half

The Bun Dough:
a. Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, yeast, in the mixing bowl. Add the egg yolk then start kneading - I use kitchen aid with a dough hook attachment set at speed 1. While kneading, slowly add the milk. After about 10 minutes of kneading add in butter then continue kneading 'till the dough is smooth for about 30 minutes.

b. Cover the mixing bowl with a cling warp then leave it in a warm place (I put mine under a reading light like this) to proof 'till it doubled in size for about 1 hour. Or if you make this during a very cold day; preheat the oven to the lowest temperature (170F on mine), turn it off, then proof the dough inside the oven. Punch the air out then divide the dough into 10-12 portion, knead and shape each into a round ball and let it rest for 10 minutes.

c. Then take one portion, flatten it out with hand or rolling pin. Place the sausage then do the above twisting method to wrap the sausage. Let it proof for another hour.

d. After the buns are ready to be baked, brush the dough with mixture of 1 egg yolk + 1 tablespoon of milk. Then bake at 350 Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes or 'till the buns are golden brown
