The Easter holidays dictate quite traditional cuisine. Pirhi, horseradish, bacon and potica are the delicacies without which it is difficult to imagine a holiday, but those present at the table are always happy to have a surprise. Of course we are not talking only about those prepared by the Easter bunny, but also about the dishes that are on the table.
This time we were impressed by the Easter bread from below Maja Kostanjšek, so we asked him if he could share it with us. It is a folded version with asparagus, bacon and horseradish, which will surely be the star of this year’s holiday. In fact, you could label it Easter for a baker, do you agree? She is also in shape, says Maja, the author of healthy, quick and tasty dishes that look sinful in her profile.
For the dough
– 500 g of white wheat flour
– 300 gr of milk with as little fat as possible
– 10 g of salt
– dry yeast (7 g)
– a tablespoon of oil
For the filling
– a bouquet of fresh asparagus
– 100 g cooked fat-free bacon
– 4 eggs
– horseradish root
For the dress
– a white man
1. Preheat the oven to 50 degrees Celsius. Heat the milk until it is warm (not too hot), then pour the yeast into it and leave for 5 minutes for the yeast paste to come to life. In another bowl mix the flour and salt. Add the yeast attachment. Mix in a dough. Form a lump and smear it with a tablespoon of olive oil. Cover the pan and let the dough rise for 60 to 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, fry the bacon and asparagus cut into small pieces and mix the eggs in the same pan.
3. When the dough is baked, roll it into a rectangle, sprinkle with the filling and minced horseradish. Fold the dough like a cloth and roll it out with a rolling pin during each fold. Place it in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and let it rise for another 60 to 90 minutes.
4. Then take the bread out of the oven, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and meanwhile coat the bread with an egg white. When the oven is preheated to 180 degrees Celsius, bake for 60 minutes.
Another tip from the author: A piece of toast (about 80 g) on a toast can also become a super convenient meal. Add another 1 to 2 boiled eggs and a piece of lean boiled bacon.
