Chard , Red Pepper and Fresh Cheese Baked Rolls

Chard and Pepper Stuffed Rolls

Lots of swiss chard in the vegebox and I was thinking about making a chard tart , I had made double shortcrust pastry for the Peach and Cardamom Tart yesterday and had even taken some cheese out of the freezer a delicious sharp fresh cheese a little like Wensleydale

Fresh Cheese

All set for a quick preparation I realised I didn’t have any eggs so these baked filled rolls were an inspiration a day working from home means Health and Safety required breaks from computer screens can be used for kneading bread and these filled rolls will provide lunch up in London tommorrow I also suspect would work well for taking walking have had some diastrous
experiences recently with disintegrating filled wraps and pitta breads

I wasn’t sure it would work but they came delicious hot or cold I know because I have already had two today one
for lunch straight from the oven and one in hand as I write this post.
The dough recipe comes from a previous recipe for Provencal Rolls

I will definitely be trying some other fillings perhaps ratatouille or chilli.
