Stuffed Turkish Rolls

I LOVE these little delights!!

You can stuff them with any choice of filling, but my favourite mix is simply feta cheese, cheddar, mozarella and parsley. They’re so very moreish and great for breakfast or afternoon tea with tea or coffee.

Make your dough.

6 cups plain flour
1 Cup warm milk
1 cup warm water
1 cup vegetable oil
2 large tablespoons of yeast
1 tablespoon of salt
2 tablespoons caster sugar

Mix it up well and knead about 10 minutes until very soft and elastic. Cover and allow to rise in a warm spot

Now the filling

Mix up crumbled feta block, 2 good handfuls pizza cheese, a great heap of chopped parsley with salt and pepper. Mix it well

Cut dough into roughly equal portions then flatten and cup into your hand. Put stuffing in the flattened piece and close it up and roll into ball.

Brush with eggwash and top with sesame and blackseeds or black sesame if you can’t get the black seeds. Bake at about 190C until ready
