This week on IGTV, we’re taking a short break from sweet treats to bring you three delicious savory bread recipes. Each of these recipes brings something a little unique and extraordinary to the table, and our editor-in-chief, @brianharthoffman, will be demonstrating plenty of tips and tricks to help you along the way. We’re starting out the week with French Onion Bread twisted into an elegant wreath. After that are the Pretzel Buns from our May/June 2020 issue, which are great for any sandwich or an elevated hamburger. Then we’ll wrap up with a small-batch recipe for Beer Clover Rolls, titled “Corona Rolls,” that’ll be an excellent addition to any dinner. If you’re interested in learning more about the techniques behind homemade bread and shaping doughs, make sure to tune in to Instagram (@thebakefeed) this week, and we’ll updating this page with recipes as we go!
We’re flipping the script on your favorite onion soup. This pillowy bread round combines sherry, thyme, and caramelized onions to impart the traditional French onion flavor while Gruyère brings cheesy decadence to the formula.
2. Pretzel Buns
These Pretzel Buns have the saltiness and chewiness of your favorite ballpark snack, and we’re bringing that same texture and taste to the table. The buns are first cooked in boiling water on the stovetop and then baked in the oven, and trust us, the end results are worth it! They take sandwiches and burgers fresh from the grill to a whole new level.
3. Corona Rolls
We infused this dough with a light amber ale because it offers subtle notes of toasty malt and sweet citrus that balance out the savory Parmesan and roasted garlic. A hoppy beer (like an IPA) would make the bread too bitter. Place three dough balls into a muffin cup to yield a charming clover shape.
