Saving at home – Milk bread


Hi everyone!

Milk sandwiches are one of the simplest ways to make everyone happy: these little bites of bread are made by kneading flour, butter and milk by hand.

They are very simple to prepare and perfect with jams, marmalades and creams but also to accompany meats and cheeses, enriching the bread basket.

Let’s start:


Ingredients for 4 people:
Ingredients for 30 sandwiches of 30 g each: Manitoba flour 150 g – Flour 00 350 g – Fresh yeast 7 g – Whole milk at room temperature 300 g – Butter 50 g – Sugar 60 g – Salt 7 g To brush: 1 egg – 20 g whole milk


To prepare the milk sandwiches, melt the butter over a very low heat and then let it cool.

Pour the two sifted flours into the bowl, add the sugar and yeast, Then pour the milk at room temperature, start mixing by hand and continue until you have a homogeneous mass.

Now add the melted butter. Knead again by hand to incorporate the butter and finally add the salt.

Knead again in the bowl, then move to the lightly oiled work surface and handle the dough for about 15 minutes until it is smooth and elastic . Turn on itself to get a spherical shape.

Place it in a lightly greased bowl and let it rest for about 2 hours in the oven with the light on or in a warm place in the house protected from drafts, covered with film. Once the indicated time has passed, your dough will have grown in volume.

Transfer it to the work surface, handle it briefly to obtain two loaves. Divide them in half lengthwise.

Divide them into about 30 bites of 30 g each. To form the sandwiches you can do in several ways, one of which is to pull each morsel to give an elliptical shape. Lightly flour your fingertips to give creases so as to bring all the edges back to the center, then press. Pinch the base lightly to seal the closure and you have made your first sandwich. Manually arrange the milk sandwiches on a dripping pan lined with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix the egg and milk. Brush the rolls and let them rise for another 30 minutes.

After this time, bake your milk sandwiches in a preheated static oven at 200 ° for about 12-13 minutes. Once cooked, transfer them to a wire rack to let them cool before serving them with sweet fillings such as jams, jams and sweet creams or with cold cuts and cheeses to taste!

Enjoy your meal!
