Broccoli Spinach Turnovers.
10 oz frozen spinach
10 oz frozen broccoli
1 cup fresh mushrooms
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup Swiss cheese- grated
1/2 cup Monterrey Jack with jalapenos- grated
1 or two cups cooked chicken
2 loaves Rhodes Frozen Bread
-Cook the spinach and broccoli. (I just throw them into the microwave for abt 3 minutes.) Drain well.
-Chop, then saute the mushrooms in 1 Tbsp butter. Cool.
- Combine all ingredients except bread dough.
-Thaw bread. Cut each loaf into 6 portions. Roll each piece into a circle about 1/8" thick.. Spoon 2 Tblsp of filling onto 1/2 of circle. Pull the other half of dough over the filling to make a half moon shape. Pinch edges to seal. Cut 2 slashes in each piece. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 10-20 minutes at 350.
Success! They turned out great. Hubby, who is not a big fan of whole wheat bread, ate 3! I think next time I will weigh the flour and then just keep adding a little flour till it is of the right consistency. Hopefully, I am slowly getting the 'feel' of what this dough should be like.
Right before I put it in the oven..
Ready to eat.
So, all in all, this assignment was a mixed bag for me. Some bad, some good. But, always learning! Who knows? I just may end up a HBin5 bread baker after all.. (I'm sure having a grand time trying!) Check out what all the others are doing with this recipe at Big Black Dog
