…for asparagus & ham bread rolls:
Peel asparagus, cut off the woody ends & then wrap 2 spears each with 2 slices of ham & place them ready. Crumble ½ cube of yeast in a tall container, add 1 teaspoon of sugar and 225 milliliters of lukewarm water & stir everything with a whisk or fork until the yeast and sugar have completely dissolved.
Then put the yeast-water mixture together with 400 grams of flour & 1 teaspoon of salt in a mixing bowl & knead with a food processor or a mixer with a dough hook for about 4 – 5 minutes to form a smooth dough.
Then cut the dough into 8 equal sized pieces with a knife, shape all the dough pieces into a long string one after the other under the palms of your hands (about twice the length of the asparagus rolls) & then wrap them tightly around the asparagus ham rolls.
Place the ready-formed rolls with a little space between them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper & cover with a kitchen towel and leave to rest in a warm place for 30 – 45 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (top/bottom heat) in good time. Whisk an egg in a small bowl & prepare. After the resting time, brush the rolls with the whisked egg & bake for about 20 minutes in the preheated oven until golden brown, then take them out of the oven & allow them to cool a little on the tray.
Meanwhile, for the hollandaise sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan over low to medium heat. Put 2 egg yolks & 25 milliliters of water in a tall conatiner & mix with a hand blender for about 10 – 15 seconds until foamy.
As soon as the butter is completely melted & begins to simmer, remove from the stove & immediately pour into the egg yolk mixture in a thin stream. Mix in the butter with the hand blender until all the butter is used up & you got a creamy & frothy hollandaise sauce.
Season the finished hollandaise sauce with salt and a little lemon juice & then serve along with the asparagus ham bread rolls. Have fun baking!
