Into a bowl add the
Mozzarella Cheese (1 1/2 cups)
Butter (1/4 cup)
. Place into ta microwave oven on high for 2 minutes, or until melted and gooey. Set aside.
Next into a large bowl add your
Instant Dry Yeast (1/2 Tbsp)
Stevia (1/2 Tbsp)
. Pour over
Water (2 Tbsp)
and mix well until it starts to bubble and foam, and just leave to stand for 1 minute.
Next add in the
Almond Flour (1 cup)
Baking Powder (1 tsp)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
and then just using a butter knife, start to gently mix everything together. You’ll end up with is a sticky, thick dough.
Now add the
Xanthan Gum (1/2 Tbsp)
to help bind everything together and finally add the
and the melted mozzarella butter mix. Mix well - the mixture will be sticky so if you use your hands, make sure to wet them first. You can also use a stand mixer.
After mixing, you should end up with a sticky, uniform dough. Leave the dough to proof and rise for 30 minutes in a warm area, it should double in volume.
Once the 30 minutes is almost up, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
While you are waiting let's get started on the filling. Into a bowl add
Scallions (1/4 cup)
Fresh Chives (2 Tbsp)
Cheddar Cheese (1 cup)
Garlic (2 cloves)
. Season with
Salt (to taste)
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
and give everything a good mix around.
The dough has now doubled in size, so take it out and place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Using a wet spatula, flatten out the dough until you have a square around 1/2 cm thick. Make sure you leave sides of the paper at each end to help with rolling the dough.
Scatter over the cheese and onion mixture to all sides and carefully begin to roll up. Use the paper to assist you and also the wet spatula to help untuck any stuck areas. Place in the middle of the parchment seam-side down.
Once you’ve rolled it up into a log shape making sure it's nice and tightly wrapped up, take scissors and cut diagonally across the log, this will make it easier to pull apart when baked. Brush over egg wash and place into a preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
Bring it out of the oven and leave it to rest for 5 minutes before pulling apart the cheesy bread, serve family style where everyone can take a piece and just sit back and enjoy!
