Friday Q: Bread, Bagels & Rolls (oh my)

Running a tad late today but that's okay, this office looks amazing (aside from one table).  Now, I'm about to toss together some dough.  It's between jalapeno cheese bread, onion bread, cinnamon bread or pepperoni bread. 

Did the pepperoni bread this week, so that's out.  But I did just buy killer fresh jalapenos.  Though cinnamon bread would be good for morning.  But as I sit here, jalapeno cheese bread sounds the best.  I'm going to juice the pepper and use the liquid in the dough, to test what kind of kick it produces.

Which brings me to my Friday Question. 

If you could eat any bread, bagel, or roll fresh from the oven.  Any bread-like item, for your next meal, what would it be?

  5. As a kid I adored pork cracklings scones or buns (one of specialities of my Vojvodina) , but since me no eats meat anymore, I'd ear anything with wholemeal flour.....

    1. I've never had a pork cracklings scone.

    2. it's one of the most famous of our national recipes - you basically mince the pork cracklings, mix them with certain amount of butter and spread it over the layers of dough during multiple kneading....

      I've found it in Hungarian for you: http://mumsfamilyrecipes.blogspot.com/2010/12/aunty-arankas-tepertos-pogacsa.html

    3. it's nagyon finom :) I'm surprised you haven't had them... Hungarians make them too a lot... it's a thing here in the Panonian lowland....

    4. What a great page, thanks. No, I don't ever ever remember having those.

      There was lots of layers of dough in Mamam's kitchen, along with multiple kneading, but by gosh I don't recall those cracklings.

      Thanks for the link. I'll go back later and give the page a longer look.

      Cheers and boogie boogie.

    5. it's one thing that I always feed foreigners :) and lard buns with plum lekvart.... I don't eat that myself, but I know those are the most delish things ever :)

      Delete
    6. Lekvar is a homemade staple in my world. Lard, I sometimes make, but not a big fan of buying it. Mamam used her own, as well.

      Delete
    7. we had lard in winter after they would butcher a pig for meat.... And tones of pig's fat too.... We had huge buckets of it throughout the year.

      Delete
    8. That is good. No waste and lots of flavour. I do this with veggies when I just them, use everything for something, even the veg pulp.

      No waste. No waste.

      Delete
    9. That's supposed to be, juice them.

      Delete
    10. oh, yes, they would waste nothing... my nagymama would even wash the poor pig's intestines from the poo and would then use them for sausages..... I really know not how poor lil' Dezzy survived there as a vegetarian :)

      Delete
    11. Yep, same here. Use those intestines up, no reason not to. Though some are grossed out by using up all the bits.

      Hope you're having a groovy day. We just finished lunch of vanilla waffles.

      Yum.

  6. Oh poo. My comment was eaten.

    I LOVE bread! Better than dessert. I would pick pepperoni bread or a salt bagel.

      Welcome back to blogging and Happy Nearly Halloween.

      PS: Salt bagels are good. I make those. So yum.

  7. Right now I love pretzel buns. Not that I am capable of making them. But I am capable of eating them!

  8. Garlic cheese bread...but I like just about anything except jalapenos!

    1. No jalapenos for you. Garlic cheese is killer.

  9. Garlic bread and pizza - pizza is a kinda bread isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  10. All the breads you mention sound great! I love bread, but my fave is a good garlic bread. Jalapeno cheese bread, have to try this!

    1. I made it two different ways and the second way was the best. Cannot wait to make it again.

      Hope you give it a go.

  11. It might be easier to say which kind I wouldn't go for- I don't care for rye or pumpernickel.

    1. Ohhhh, I love those. Do you have a favorite?

    2. Sourdough's good, something along the lines of cheese breads, Italian, or garlic too.

      Delete
    3. I've not made sourdough yet. Must give that a go. Cheese breads are yummy.

      Cold and rainy here today. Perfect little Saturday. Cold there?

  12. I'd like a calzone. Does that count?

  13. I love any kind of bread. Something cheesy is better than something sweet but give me some cinnamon and raisin and I'll be happy.

    1. Making the cinnamon raisins next.

      Welcome back from your trip. Hope you have a great weekend.

  14. That's a really tough question...I would say a spinach and cheddar scone for savory and a hand pie like yours for sweet, cherries are my favorite.

    1. Mmmm, spinach in bread is wonderful.

  15. I love all kinds of bread. Especially Rye bread.
    The best breads were the one my Mum made warm from the over plain or with some butter !
    But her best bread were the ones she made for Easter. Light braided bread with raisins or the rolled one with poppy seed filling. We are Polish and Easter is always filled with the best spring foods.

    1. Yum, Parsnip. I love raisins in bread. Just made carrot muffins with organic raisins. They really bring something special to the party.

  16. Just one type? OH my...what to choose.... Cinnamon bread. Or something with cheese in it. Or garlic bread. Or honey wheat bread. Or or or... This is too tough, Wonder Woman! I'm spinning in circles :)

  17. That Jalapeno Cheese Bread sounds amazing. I used to LOVE bread... I mean LOVEEEE it. But since I've become gluten/wheat intolerant, I've had to do without. It's like a part of me just died.

    Anyway, when I was living in London a solid decade ago, I used to buy Brioche, (a slightly sweet roll) just loved that with fresh chedder cheese :)

    1. I am soon to make a chocolate brioche, as it is on my To Bake List.

      I am sorry you can't deal with the gluten but there are many other options, like almond, flax and corn flours. Rice flours and really, just a bunch of non-gluten goodies. But I suppose that depends on what is in your area.
