Helloo,

I’ve been searching through some of my recipe books and I came across a delicious recipe in ‘Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook.’ I loved the look of her Lemon, Dill and Fish Roe Bullar. However, I decided to use what I had at home which was some basil pesto, feta cheese and tomato. These are pretty easy bread to make so I thought I’d share the recipe =)

Ingredients:

270ml warm (approx body temp) milk

75g sugar

1/2 tsp salt

90g melted butter

500g bread flour (high grade)

2tsp fast-action yeast

Approx 200g pesto

Approx 2 large tomatoes

Approx 50g feta

Method:

  1. Heat milk, and sugar in the microwave for approx 30 seconds. (Until it doesn’t feel cool to the touch).
  2. Pour into a mixer with a dough hook attachment. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix for about 10 mins. (Until the dough is stretchy and elastic).
  3. Form the dough into a ball, cover with a damp cloth and leave to prove until double in size (approx 1 hour).
  4. Dust your work surface. Roll the ball out into a rectangle (40cmx35cm). Spread the pesto over the dough. Sprinkle the feta and chopped tomato over the dough so it’s evenly dispersed. image2 (2)
  5. Fold the dough over in thirds, folding the top into the middle and then the bottom over top.image3 (2)
  6. Cut the dough into approx 3cm strips using a pizza cutter.
  7. Cut each piece in half leaving approx 2cm at the top.image4 (2)
  8. Twist the pieces together.image6 (2)
  9. Then twist the ends together into a knot.image7
  10. Transfer onto a lined baking tray and leave to prove for 30 mins.
  11. Bake at 200 degrees for approx 10-15 mins.
  12. Yay they’re ready!!!!!

These are so delicious! I had them as a side for dinner but these would be perfect for lunch, snacks or anything coz they’re so good!
