Prep time: 60mins – Cook time: 25 mins – Make 12 buns
Switch up your hot cross buns with this savoury version. Best served hot with our delicious meat free sausages and a drizzle of ketchup!
1 pack of Meat Free Chipolatas
700g strong white flour, plus 5 tbsp for crosses
3x 7g sachets of fast action dried yeast
500ml milk, warmed
140g mature cheddar, grated
5 tbsp grated parmesan
5 tbsp water
1 egg, whisked with a fork to brush over the buns
- Heat the milk up and mix the yeast, flour and 2 teaspoons of salt together. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour the milk. Mix together until it has formed into a soft dough, then knead for 10 mins. Put back in the bowl, cover and leave somewhere warm (by a radiator etc) until it has doubled in size, for around 30 mins.
- Take the dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface and knead in most of the cheese. Divide the dough into 12 balls, and place on a lined baking tray. Cover again and leave somewhere warm for 20 mins or so, until the balls have doubled in size again.
- Heat the oven to 180°C. Brush the egg over the buns and scatter some cheese on top of each one. Mix the 5 tbsp of flour, water, and parmesan for the crosses. Drizzle or pipe onto each bun in a cross shape, then place into the oven for 20-25 mins, until the buns are golden.
- Fry the sausages in a pan with a little oil until cooked through. Once the hot cross buns are cooked, slice in half and add the butter/salad/ketchup, then add 2 sausages on top.
