Pecorino cheese and black pepper buns.
grated pecorino cheese
freshly grounded black pepper
milk to brush buns
Blend with a mixer water, sourdough and honey. I Always blend sourdough as it gives better rising results
Mix by hand or with a kitchen appliance flour, sourdough, soften butter, cheese and black pepper. Mix for a couple of minutes then add salt and knead untill you have a smooth loaf.
Let it rise untill it doubles covered in a warm place. Reduce dough and make about 10 small buns, about 2.5 oz each. Put them on a baking tray and let them rise untill they double.
Heat oven at 428°F, put a pan filled with water inside the oven to produce steam. Brush buns with milk then bake for 15 minutes then reduce heat at 374°F and bake for 15- 20 minutes more.
