Piri Piri and Cheddar Swirls

So seeing as I still have some Knorr Piri Piri paste ( this stuff goes really far ) I thought I'd make some of these bad boys!!

You will need

500g flour 
7g fast action yeast
40g oil
Pinch salt
Pinch sugar
290g warm water
Knorr Piri Piri paste 
2 good handfuls of grated mature cheddar cheese

Combine flour salt and sugar in a bowl,
Mix the water oil and yeast then chuck this in the dry ingredients. Knead unil a dough forms.

You don't need to wait for this to prove, roll the dough out into a rectangle about half a centimetre thick.

Spread the Knorr Piri Piri over the entire dough, I like mine spicy so I used 3 tbsp but it's up to you how much you can handle! Sprinkle evenly with the mature cheddar and roll up like you would a Swiss roll, like this.....

With a serated knife carefully cut into slices around 2cm thick like this....

Arrange on a lined baking tray about an inch apart like this...

Then let them prove for around 30 minutes, chuck them in a preheated oven on 160c for 12 minutes or until golden brown like this....

These are wicked for a picnic!!!

Piri Piri Rolls

I've been lucky enough to get my hands on some knorr cooking pastes, now you probably know by now that I'm not one to use things as they were intended.

Normal burger rolls are fine but sometimes you need a bit of difference and to be honest I'm getting a bit bored of a brioche roll now!!

So these Piri Piri Rolls are great to have as an alternative, fantastic with chicken or any other burger you fancy!!

For the rolls:

500g flour
290g warm water
7g fast action yeast
Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
100g Knorr Piri Piri paste

Chuck your flour salt and sugar in a bowl and give a little mix, then weigh out 290g warm water (weighing out water is better for consistency, 1g is 1ml.)
Add 7g yeast stir and add 100g Knorr Piri Piri Paste.

Stir this through the flour and slowly knead until a dough, prove in a warm place until double the size knock back and shape into 8 rolls.
Prove again to double size and cook on 170c for 17 mins or until golden brown and sounding hollow to the tap. Or freeze the uncooked dough and cook from frozen when needed!! 

Let cool and serve with the filling or your choice!!
