Spring onion cheese roll

Spring onion cheese roll

Oriental bread as I refereed to is based upon the texture of dough. Most of the oriental breads we make here use sweet dough for more delicate and tender texture. Formula of sweet dought that we are using can be different one way or the other from those you are familiar with.

Spring onion cheese roll is one of the most popular breads from my oven. I made it last night for my boys breakfast this morning. Actually, it's been a party attraction that can be prepared very easily and can drow a lot of appreciation especially from kids.

 

Ingredients prepared for the bread. I also add some chopped bacon for better flavor. In our community we always say that Chinese bun is steamed bread and bread is baked Chinese bun. The idea of the spring onion cheese roll came from one of our tranditonal steam buns. I just add up bacon and cheese and sent it to my oven and make it oriental bread as what I call it.    

 

Waiting for final proofing after shaping and dividing.

 

Final proofing done~~~I always love how the bread appears after proofing. It looks gorgeous. 

 

Taking baking as cooking is the game I love playing.

 

A friend from Austria told me that this could not be called "bread". He said it's more like "dessert", but he liked the desert very much. You can try to decide if you are gonna like it as well. ^------^

Formula:

  • Bread flour            450 g
  • Instant yeast         5 g
  • Sugar                   30 g
  • Salt                      1/2 tea spoon
  • Whole egg            one
  • Water                   215 g
  • Butter                   30 g

Comment: I choose not to show the method here since it's simple enough to follow just by checking on the ingredients. Although my English is not not good enough to express what I have to say in 100%, I'm sure in the baking republic all the ingredients speak the same language.

Hi, weavershouse

I'm a part time housewife. I guess my family can't complain too much whenever I have something to offer to them ^--^. I've been hoping to be a full time housewife. I love staying in my kitchen.

These look so very nice.  I love anything with green onions.  Does the bacon require any pre-cooking?  Great pictures.  Thank You.   Sylvia

Sylvia,
It looks like she cooks the bacon some before using it. I don't think it would cook enough to render the fat if you used it raw. I'm going to try this in the next few days and do a method write up.

Hi, Sylvia and Eric,

Eric is right about the bacon. I put the bacon in the microwave for two minutes to extract the fat. I think it will provide different taste if the bacon is saute with onion before used. I'm gonna try it next time.

With bacon, cheese and green onion as ingredients, how can anyone NOT want to devour these?  :)

They look terrific!

Thanks to you, SteveB.

Spring onion is the leading lady for Chinese cooking. Even it rarely used as the main part of a dish, cooking just doesn't count without it. I guess you like Chinese food as well.

April,
I made these a couple weeks ago and they were wonderful! Thank you for posting this recipe. I prepared the dish at home and took it to a family breakfast and baked it there. You are now famous in Wisconsin.

Here is the method I used for anyone who is curious. I added some plum tomatoes to the filling cleaned and chopped fine. This is April's recipe as I interpretted it.

Spring onion rolls

Formula:

· Bread flour 450 g

· Instant yeast 5 g

· Sugar 30 g

· Salt 1/2 tea spoon

· Whole egg one

· Water 215 g

· Butter 30 g

Method: Lightly fry or warm chopped bacon or ham, drain and set aside to cool.

Mix dough knead till moderate development and ferment till double. Roll or stretch to thin layer 10x14 or so. I had to let the dough rest so it would stretch.

Fill Ingredients: Green Onions (scallions), bacon chopped or thick ham, cheddar cheese , tomatoes deseeded and cleaned and chopped.
Note: I used 1 Tabelspoon of Maggi sauce (like soy) mixed with fill ingredients.

Spread ingredients (bacon, onions tomatoes ½ cheese) evenly on dough and jellyroll up.

Cut with serrated knife into2 inch rolls and stack in glass baking pan. Brush with egg wash.Top with remaining cheddar cheese and fresh ground pepper.

Allow to proof till puffy at 75-80 F.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or done. Cool for cheese eating safety if you can stand to wait.

That looks to be about the best thing I have seen in almost forever.  Wow!  I am going to go and make it...maybe in about an hour.  Thanks so much for posting it.  It makes me think of swirled nuns so very differently.  Which had never occurred to me.

I am attempting the recipe, but I don't have a scale.  I used an online conversion program, but it looks way off.  I plan on buying a scale, but haven't found one locally.  Thank you.

Sadly, accurate conversion isn't possible, because the way people use cups (and the flour they use) varies.


That's why recipes should be by weight, and people should use scales!


 


If you check the equipment section here, http://www.thefreshloaf.com/forums/gear/baking-equipment you'll find some mail-order recomendations for economical and effective scales.
