A really delicious alternative to bread, very impressive and so quick to prepare! I love serving this with homemade soup, or as a starter with mezze, such as hummus, olives, curred meats and cheese.
- Knob of butter
- 1tblsp olive oil
- 4 spring onions, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 150g Feta/Goat/Cheddar Cheese (a mix is great)
- 50g Parmesan cheese
- 100g olives/sundried tomatoes, roughly chopped
- 175g self raising flour
- pinch of salt
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 large egg
- 2tbslp milk (if needed)
Preheat the oven to 180c. Melt the oli and butter in a pan and gently cook the spring onions and garlic for 2-3 minutes. Put the flour in a large bowl with the cheese, (reserve a tblsp of Parmesan), sundried tomatoes, salt, cayenne pepper and the egg and mix well with a fork. Allow the onion mixture to cool slightly before adding to the flour mixture, adding all the butter and mix well. Form the mixture into a dough and shape into a round about 2cm thick. Put the dough on a lightly oiled baking tray and brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle the remaining cheese and a little bit of rock salt. Bake for 20 minutes.
Allow to cool on a wire rack for 20minutes before serving with warm butter.
For a delicious alternative add 1 tblsp of Pesto sauce or fry a chopped red chilli with the spring onions.
