Pull aparts are just about one of our favourite quick easy lunch or picnic recipe. Its hard to go past freshly baked bread loaded with your choice of flavours. The herb and garlic butter pull apart had me in heaven. These snail pull aparts are great if you are having kids come over for a play, you don't always want to make big snails for those little eaters!! Plus the kids seem to enjoy ripping their lunch apart. The fillings can be just about anything - just don't use too much liquid, ie tomato sauce, if its too soggy it won't cook as well. Share with us your favourite flavours. Eb x
- 5g dried yeast (2 tsp)
- 280g luke warm water (350g for larger dough qty)
- 520g bread flour mix (620g for larger dough qty)
- 20g olive oil (30g for larger dough qty)
Note: I opt to use a bread flour mix rather than bakers flour. Generally the bread mix will have preservatives and salt added but I get a good result every time and the bread stays good for a few days or in the freezer. Currently I am using a bread mix from 2brothersfood online but All About Bread also have a terrific range.
Add all ingredients to bowl in the order above and mix on Speed 7 for 5 seconds. Set to Closed Lid then dial on Interval for 2 minutes. Lightly oil your Thermomat and gently knead your dough in a ball coating it in the oil. Set aside for 20-30 minutes. Note: If it’s a cold day you can help it to rise by using a heat pack, or put a mug of water in your microwave and cook for 2 minutes, remove and put dough inside.
Once risen re-knead then using a rolling pin, roll out to a rectangular shape the same size as your mat. Using your spatula, cut the dough in half (along the longest side).
Place toppings of your choice over the two pieces of dough, some suggestions:
Cheese and Vegemite,
Cheese, Ham, tomato/bbq sauce, salami, tomatoes, olives, pineapple
Apple and cinnamon
Roll up the dough and with a chopping board underneath, cut into small “snails”. Arrange in a baking dish. Place into a cold oven, turn onto 200deg and cook for 20-25 minutes or leave to rise for 15-20 minutes and place into a hot oven at 200deg for 15 minutes.
