Stuffed Garlic Bread is Domino’s style bread which is a favourite among the kids as well as the adults. The Bread is super delicious with stretchy cheese and herbs.
With December we begin with our annual Bakeathon event, where we post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The event is at Valli’s and you can read more on it here. Nothing has been specially baked for this event, all posts are from my drafts.
It has been a while since we had outside food. Due to COVID, we are avoiding outside food, as a result, most of the cooking is done at home. As for me, I just miss the roadside Golgappas. For Juhi, it is a long list of the food that she is missing and one of them is this Stuffed Garlic Bread that she used to order from Domino’s.
So one fine day she decided to bake it herself, I was nowhere around her. Our life has changed as she has WFH and hardly gets time to sit around with the family. As a result when she has some free time, which is always on odd hours, either I am resting or with Moh, my little grandson.
Anyways while she baked this bread it filled the house with a wonderful aroma, it was this aroma that brought me straight to the kitchen. The bread was a treat by itself with cheese, garlic and the mild zing of jalapeños. The crust well seasoned with Italian herbs, and a cheesy stuffing. One really doesn’t need any accompaniments, but if you wish you could serve it with some ketchup or Mayo. We enjoyed the bread as a late afternoon snack, but it could very well be served for a high tea or anytime you have a garlicky cheesy craving.
Stuffed Garlic Bread
¾ tsp yeast
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 cups maida
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chopped garlic/garlic powder
Water to knead the dough
2 tsp oil
150 gms mozzarella cheese
2-3 tbsp jalapeños
1 tsp garlic chopped / powder
1 tsp oregano
1/4 cup melted butter
Proving the Yeast
Take about 1/2 cup lukewarm water.
Add the sugar and give a mix so that it dissolves.
Now add the instant yeast, mix gently and cover and keep it aside for it to prove.
This shall take about 10 minutes.
Take the flour in a mixing bowl.
Add garlic powder and salt. Mix well.
Now add the proved yeast mix and knead it to a soft dough.
Once the flour has come together, knead it well for another 5-7 minutes.
Drizzle oil over the dough and knead again for a minute.
Cover and keep the dough aside till the dough rises and is double.
This shall take anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours, depending on the weather.
Making and Stuffing the Bread
After the dough has doubled, sprinkle some flour and knock down the dough.
Divide the dough into two balls and smoothen them.
Roll the first ball, now spread grated cheese on one side.
I have mixed cheddar and mozzarella.
Sprinkle garlic powder, oregano, jalapeños.
( you can choose stuffings of your own choice )
Apply water on the semi-circle and bring it down to seal the bread into a half-moon.
Apply melted butter on the top and sprinkle seasoning of your choice.
Cut the bread into 1 ‘’ slices making sure not to cut through and through. Only the top has to be cut.
Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 180deg C.
Remove the bread, let rest for 5 minutes and cut into slices.
Enjoy the garlicky cheesy bread.
