Panini Sandwich Bread … my kids favorite for taking as a packed lunch sandwich. Now I know that I can go to LIDL and they are just 25p each .. but each of those 25ps are beginning to add up.
So today’s mission is to make a stash of panini rolls that be used by the big one and the little one this week for a fraction of the cost .. after all I am pretty sure I have everything in stock and the only excuse I could have is laziness.
So begged a favour of a pal to get a tried and true recipe for nice soft panini rolls that the kids will enjoy.
- 580 g strong bread flour
- 1.25 tsp active yeast
- 0.75 tsp salt
- 300 ml milk – slightly warmed
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1.5 tbsp sugar
All thrown into my breadmaker and set to “Dough” .. which in my machine lasts for 90 minutes … then turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
Cut the dough into an even dozen pieces – I do this by making the dough into a ball, marking it in half, then in quarters .. then marking three equal wedges in each quarter.
Roll each piece into a rectangle that is about 6″ long or so….. you know – panini shaped LOL
And lay out on a tray so that they can prove for a second time.
Mine sit happily under a cloth for about 60 minutes until they have fluffed up a bit and doubled in size.
Brush with melted butter and……
Into the oven at 170 for 12 – 14 minutes
and out comes a dozen soft panini sandwich rolls .. and of course the smell is utterly divine!!
The wee red head immediately ate on without anything on it .. and the big one had one with bread and jam .. both pronounced them perfect and fluffy.
Cheap rolls for a couple of days breakfasts or lunches all sorted .. so who is tempted to pull out their bread-maker and give it a go then?
