All these are easy because of its small size… Any shape will do, proofing time is shorter and baking time is even shorter depending on size of your bread..

I can’t claim this is my original idea and I have obtain the inspiration from the internet. This bake of bite size cheesy buns are rather common especially in Chinese speaking Facebook food groups. ..However, I never read their recipes and unsure what have been used. The common shape is cubical shape..

This recipe is entirely from my own crazy ideas.. I modified the recipe from the basic bread dough .. Since this is a cheesy bread, most the ingredients I used are diary based.. Cheese never goes wrong with bacon. Since I have some chicken “bacon” at home, I have decided  to pair them up. To enhance the flavour, I have used Italian mixed herb comprising of oregano and etc..

I am more than happy with this adventure.. The bread is soft and very aromatic …I loved especially the cheesy herbs flavour.  The only disappointment is that I have forgotten to add in pinches of salt.. As such the bread is slightly bland.. Well I have already adjusted in the recipe.. Be it savoury or sweet, this bread is addictive .. It will be a very good snack when you are picnicking, gathering etc..

STEPS OF PREPARATION

Cheesy Bacon Bread Bites (培根芝士小面包)

  • Add bread flour, milk, condensed milk, salt, eggs and yeast in a standing mixer’s mixing bowl. Use a spoon to slightly stir it until it form a sticky dough. Use the dough hook in the machine to beat the dough at medium to low speed (speed 2 in Kenwood Chef or Kitchen Aid) for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, put the butter and cheddar cheese, change from medium to high speed (speed 4 kin Kenwood Chef or Kitchen Aid) for about 7 minutes until the dough is smooth and leaves the side of the mixing bowl. Take a small piece of dough and lightly stretch the dough. If it can form a thin film of dough without breaking, the kneading is considered as adequate.. This is called windowpane test.

  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface, add the bacon bits. Use hand to lightly knead the dough until all the bacon bits are well incorporated. Shape round and let it proof until double in size. Cover with a clingy wrap or wet towel. If the dough is too sticky, flour your hand and continue the kneading.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 160 degree Celsius

  • When the dough double in size, punch the dough and roll the dough evenly into a 1 cm thickness . Use a cookie mould or any other desired mould to mould out the dough and transfer to a lightly greased baking tray. Gather the sides, roll flat and mould until all its done. Let it proof until at least double in size.

  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown. Store in a covered container once the bread bites had completely cooled.

Note:

  • While kneading the dough, if your dough is too wet, add bread flour tablespoon to tablespoon until it form a pliable dough. If it is too dry, add milk or water teaspoon by teaspoon until it forms a pliable dough. There are many factors that may affect the dough condition, condition of flour, how wet is your puree can significantly affect the amount of liquid required. As such, you have to exercise judgment. A bit more or less is acceptable in bread making. 

  • The timing of the baking is relatively shorter and very much depend on your size. As long as the bottom of the bread is slightly brownish, it is considered as cooked. If you want to brown the top, you may need to monitor until it reach your desired colour tone. Over baking, however will make your tiny bread hard.

CONCLUSION

This is a simple recipe with many variations. I believed it is suitable for new bakers. With its tiny size, any imperfection will not be obvious. If you want it to be sweet version, just add 2 tablespoons of sugar .. Otherwise, it will a savoury version as in the recipe. Feel free to change the bacon to bak kwa or even sausages..  As for cheese, if you like very strong cheesy flavour which does not suit my taste buds, you can use 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese powder to substitute the cheddar cheese.. If you do not like oregano, why not change to chopped spring onion or even coriander?
