Preparing Stuffed Cheeseburger Bread Rolls

Preparing Stuffed Cheeseburger Bread Rolls

For the bread roll dough, put 500 grams of wheat flour, 300 milliliters of lukewarm water & 1 teaspoon each of salt and sugar in a mixing bowl, crumble in ½ cube of yeast (about 20 grams) & knead all the ingredients with a food processor or mixer with dough hook for 4 – 5 minutes to form a smooth dough.

Then use a knife or a dough card to divide the dough into 8 pieces of roughly the same size, then form all pieces of dough into small balls or round them under your palms. Roll out the dough balls one after the other on a lightly floured work surface with a rolling pin, circular & about 20cm wide.

For the filling, first put a slice of cheddar in the middle of the flatbread, then spread a few pickle slices on top & finally add a well-heaped tablespoon of the meat mixture on top.

Fold the dough tightly over the filling from all sides, press down a little in the middle & place the filled buns upside down on a baking tray lined with baking paper, repeat the whole thing for the remaining ingredients.

Cover the filled bread rolls with a kitchen towel & let them rest for 30 – 45 minutes until the rolls have increased in volume. Preheat the oven to 200°C (top/bottom heat) in good time. After the resting time, brush the buns with some beaten egg & sprinkle with sesame seeds (white & black sesame seeds were used here).
