Dish of the week: Cheese and onion tear and share bread

Hosting friends over for an evening? This Doves Farm KAMUT® Khorasan cheese and onion tear and share bread is the perfect party dish!

This spectacular sharing bread works best with a strong tasting cheese. We used feta cheese but mature cheddar or stilton also work well.

Oven fan 180˚C

350 g KAMUT khorasan wholemeal flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp quick yeast
1 tsp sugar
250 ml cider or apple juice
2 tbsp sunflower oil
300g onion
100g feta or other cheese

1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, quick yeast and sugar.

2. Add the liquid and roughly mix it into the flour.

3. While the dough is still lumpy add one spoon of oil and knead until smooth and pliable.

4. Cover and leave in a draught free place to double in size, about an hour.

5. Fry the onions in the remaining oil until they collapse then turn down the heat and cook until golden, about 40 minutes.

6. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for several minutes.

7. Roll out the dough to a 25x35cm/10x14" rectangle.

8. Spread the onions, evenly over the dough.

9. Cut the cheese into cubes and scatter over the onions.

10. Moisten the edges of the dough with water.

11. Roll up the dough pinching the edges to ensure the filling is contained.

12. Cut the dough into 2cm/1" slices.

13. Place dough slices flat an oiled baking tray moistening the touching edges with a little water.

14. Cover and leave to rise for 30 minutes in a warm place.

15. Bake in a pre-heated oven 35/40 minutes.
