/ Cheese Appetizers
varies 12-15 rolls
1 loaf frozen (16oz.) bread dough, white or wheat , your choice. thawed
frozen chopped broccolli , thawed
onion finely chopped
shredded cheese ( cheddar)
salt and pepper
for eggwash - 1 tablespoon water + 1 egg beaten (reserve for later)
1Thaw all frozen ingredents
2Chop broccoli into very fine chop.
I use my food processor.
3Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the broccoli. (I use a clean kitchen towel, put the broccoli in the middle, gather up the edges and wring out over the sink.)
4Mix broccoli and all other ingredents, except dough and eggwash. Set aside.
5With sharp knife cut dough in half horizontally, (resembeling a book.)
6Cut each side of dough again horizontally
7Place the 4 pieces of dough, long sides touching, to form a rectangle. Press sides together. Pat dough to even out thickness.
8Spread broccoli mixture evenly over dough.
9Starting from the longest side , roll into a jelly roll, pinching long edge closed.
10Cut into rounds about 1-1 1/2 inch thick and place directly into a buttered pan.
11Let rise until doubled in size.
12Bake at 350* 30 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. > NOTE< brush with eggwash - 1 Tablespoon water mixed with 1 egg - 5-7 minutes before done.
