Qatar - Stuffed bread with sausage & vegetables





Day 4 and a recipe from Qatar. I'm happy to say this was a much better baking experience than yesterday. Only a bit of sticking ^_^

Ingredients:


For the dough
  • 1 Tbls yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 ½ Cup warm water
  • 3 Cup Flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbls oil
For filling
  • 8 sausages
  • 1 Onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Oats for decoration

 Put the yeast, water and sugar in a bowl and stir. Leave for 10 minutes.


 Cook the sausages and set aside for later.


 Chop the onion and pepper into slices.


 When the yeast mixture gets all frothy you can start making the bread.


 Mix the flour and salt then add it to the yeast water and the tablespoon of oil. Form the dough and knead it for 5 minutes.


 Leave the dough to rise in a warm place.


 Saute the pepper and onion until it's soft.


When the dough has risen knead the bread again and split into 8 pieces.


 Roll them out into rectangles. Roughly anyway :)


 Add a sausage, some pepper and onion, a bit of mozzarella then season with salt and pepper.


 Roll up the dough, tucking the sides in as you go. Place on an oiled baking tray. Cover them again and leave to rise for a second time.


 Bake in the oven at 180 C for about 30 minutes.




I was really pleased with how these turned out after yesterdays fiasco. Everyone enjoyed them, even the kids. The bread was crispy on the outside but soft and warm on the inside. The sausage and vegetables tasted really good together and were also complimented by the melted cheese. It was great dipped in our split pea soup. The recipe was a bit of a faff with the rising twice but I can see me making them again since they went down so well. :)

Coming tomorrow:  Spiced cake from Grenada
