I made some delicious rolls today for lunch. It was a basic dough recipe, with a caramelised garlic, feta and olive filling. I think the bread dough would have risen more if the weather had been warmer, but it’s the middle of winter here in New Zealand at the moment!
Rolling up the dough trying to keep the filling in place was a little difficult but the rolls are supposed to be ‘rustic’, and indeed they were. The filling could easily be changed to incorporate whatever is lying around – or growing in the garden in abundance – and the recipe I used called for ‘oven dried’ tomatoes, but I substituted those with the olives, as winter tomatoes are so watery and tasteless that it’s just not worth bothering with them really.
This was my first attempt at this recipe, I would possibly make a few changes next time I make them – but all in all, I’m very happy with the finished product. I’ll add this to my list of ‘Out of My Comfort Zone Cooking‘ successes!
