If you haven't noticed, we are kind of obsessed with whole-wheat bread items over here. I usually make a home-made bread item to accompany our Sunday dinners. This last Sunday was my Dad's Birthday Dinner so we had to make something EXTRA special. These look fancy, taste wonderful, and are SO fun to make! Plus I LOVE pulling apart each layer as you eat them.
Pull-Apart Herb Rolls
Adapted from: Petite Kitchenesse
- 3 cups of flour (I used half whole-wheat and half all-purpose flour)
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 packet of instant yeast (2¼ tsp.)
- ⅓ cup of sugar
- ¾ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 1 1/2 T Kosher Salt
- 2 T Oregano
- 1-2 T Garlic Powder (to taste- I like mine STRONG!)
- 2 T Melted Butter
*Can also add different herbs, cheese, or use roasted garlic cloves instead
1. Combine warm water, sugar, and yeast in an electric mixer with the dough hook. . Add butter and salt to the yeast mixture, then sift in flour 1 cup at a time, until dough forms. Knead for 8–10 minutes, until dough is smooth. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover with saran wrap or a damp towel, and set in a warm area for about an hour, or until doubled. (I place in a slightly warm oven.)
2. Punch down dough and turn out on a well-floured surface. Knead a few times, and then let it rest for 5 minutes. In the meantime, mix Oregano (or herb of your choice) garlic powder, and salt and melt the butter. Roll dough out into a large rectangle, somewhere between ¼ and ⅛ of an inch thick. Brush butter over the entire surface of the dough, then cover evenly with the filling.
