The other day my Fiance and I were making ourselves a pizza for dinner (we love to make our own pizza together) when I realised that we had no garlic bread! (For us this is huge – we could eat garlic bread forever). What we did have, however, was more dough than we could get in our skillet. So I had a brain wave. And this is what it looked like:
I call these my herby garlic dough rolls. They are so buttery and garlicy and yummy! So today, I thought I would share my creation with you! Here is the recipe:
1 tbsp Olive Oil
225g Strong White Bread Flour
1tsp Dried Herbs
1/2tsp Easy Blend Dried Yeast
A Handful of Mozzarella
4 Cloves of Garlic
Add all of the dough ingredients to the bread maker and set to the dough setting. This is usually about 30 Mins of kneading followed by an hour of prooving.
If you dont have a bread maker, you can just use your hands. Put all of the dry ingredients into a bowl, then slowly add in the water bit by bit, mixing with a wooden spoon until you no longer can. Then continue to mix with your hands, until you have a dough starting to form. Tip the bowl out onto a floured surface and knead until it all comes together into a smooth springy dough that bounces back if you press your finger gently into it. Then leave in an oiled bowl to proove, about and hour or until doubled in size.
Whilst waiting for your dough to proove, soften the butter in a small bowl. Finely chop 4 garlic cloves. Cream the garlic clives into the butter then beat until creamy and spreadable.
Take your dough and knock it back on an oiled surface then stretch it into a rough rectangle.
Spread the garlic butter all over the dough right to the edges. Sprinkle over the mozzarella then roll up along the long edge.
Cut into bite size amounts. I cut my roll or garlicy goodness in half, then half again, then half again, so that I had 8 peices.
Place them in a baking dish as you would a batch of cinnamon rolls, and bake until golden brown. Around gas mark 7 for 20 to 30 minutes.
Enjoy! Try not to gobble them up before you get them to the dinner table!
