Cheesy Pouches / Torbice sa sirom

As usual, I had some random leftovers lying around the house, which coincidentally included some cream cheese. A little snooping around the internet confirmed my beliefs that you can actually make dough with cream cheese and that you don’t have to use yeast. This means that there is no proofing and that the dough can be whipped up in no time.

Also, another great thing about these puppies is that they are actually super tasty on the following and even on their third day. All you need to do is wrap them loosely up in aluminum foil and pop them into the oven for 10-15 minutes to warm up. They come out juicy and moist, tasting just like they were freshly baked. Naturally, these pouches are also pretty addictive so you probably won’t have any leftovers to begin with. 😀

IMGP6855

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. To assemble the dough, mix together all of the ingredients and knead for about five minutes, until the dough is pliable and smooth. If necessary, add a bit more flour or milk. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface and cut into large circles. I used a huge mug for this. Re-roll the scraps and repeat until all the dough is used up.

To make the filling, finely dice everything up and stir all of the ingredients together. Place a teaspoon of filling on each dough circle, then fold the dough over and seal the edges. To secure that nothing leaks out, you can press down the edges with a fork.

Spread the pouches on prepared baking sheet and lightly brush each one with a bit of water. Mix together all the seasoning ingredients and lightly sprinkle each pouch.

Bake for 30 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve the pouches warm, as a fancy breakfast or delicious snack.

Kao i obično, imala sam doma dosta nekakvih ostataka koji su mi se povlačili, a među njima se našlo i nešto svježeg sira. Nakon malo kopanja po internetu potvrdila sam svoju sumnju da se tijesto može napraviti i od sira te da ga se ne mora raditi sa kvascem. To znači da nema dizanja, a samo tijesto možete smutiti za čas.

Također, još jedna super stvar kod ovih torbica je da su izvrsne i drugi, pa čak i treći dan. Samo ih labavo umotajte u aluminijsku foliju i ubacite u pećnicu na 10 do 15 minuta da se ugriju. Biti će sočne i fine, baš kao da su upravo pečene. Naravno, ovi mali paketići izazivaju takvu ovisnost da vam ionako vjerovatno ništa neće ostati za kasnije. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 torbica sa sirom / 1,19 kn po torbici / 23,76 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

½ šalice kukuruznog brašna (0,40 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

2 žličice praška za pecivo (0,20 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žličice šećera (0,04 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (5,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,75 kn)

¼ šalice mlijeka (0,50 kn)

Za nadjev:

2 šnite pršuta (5,00 kn)

3 šnite šunke (3,50 kn)

5 šnita sira (3,50 kn)

2 žlice svježeg sira (1,00 kn)

1 žličica vode (–)

Za posipanje:

Voda (–)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žličica kima (0,50 kn)

1 žlica sezama (0,50 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećniocu na 180°C. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Pomiješajte sve sastojke za tijesto i mijesite oko pet minuta, da tijesto bude glatko i da se ne lijepi. Po potrebi, dodajte mrvicu više brašna ili mlijeka. Tijesto razvaljajte na dobro pobrašnjenoj plohi i izrežite u velike krugove. Ja sam kao kalup upotrijebila veliku šalicu. Ponovno umijesite i razvaljajte ostatke tijesta i ponovite dok sve ne potrošite.

Da napravite nadjev, nasjeckajte sve na male kockice i pomiješajte sve sastojke. Na svaki krug tijesta stavite po žličicu nadjeva, pa preklopite tijesto na pola i stisnite skupa rubove. Kako ništa ne bi iscurilo, dodatno vilicom utisnite spojeve.

Raširite torbice po pripremljenom protvanu i lagano svaki paketić premažite sa malo vode. Pomiješajte skupa sol, papar, kim i sezam pa tom smjesom posipajte svaku torbicu.

Pecite 30 minuta, dok tijesto ne bude hrskavo i zlatno. Poslužite toplo, kao fensi doručak ili kao ukusni snack.

Open-Faced Grilled Cheese on Thick Buttermilk Pancake / Topli sendviči na debeloj palačinki od kiselog mlijeka

The other day while browsing our fridge I concluded that we had a whole bunch of odds and ends which needed to be utilized and eaten as soon as possible. That usually happens when I don’t plan for the meals but instead succumb to cravings for let’s say cheese or buttermilk or cake. However, cake is rarely a leftover in our house so luckily you don’t have to bake one to assemble this sandwich. 🙂

This recipe is fairly liberal and you can substitute buttermilk for yogurt, sour cream or even milk. The toppings are also totally optional and throwing a grilled veggie or two would work out more than fine. As would some crispy bacon.

IMGP6722

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 sandwiches / 0.90 EUR per sandwich / 1.80 EUR for all)

For the batter:

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

1 cup buttermilk (0.40 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

¼ tsp baking soda (0.01 EUR)

1 cup all-purpose flour (0.07 EUR)

For sandwich topping:

6 slices of cheese (0.53 EUR)

4 slices of ham (0.53 EUR)

Additional:

4 tsp sunflower oil for cooking (0.05 EUR)

IMGP6723

METHOD:

Make the batter by whisking together egg, buttermilk and salt. Add in baking soda and flour and whisk until fully incorporated and no lumps remain. The batter should be quite thick.  Cover with cling foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

When ready to cook, preheat cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add in two tablespoons of sunflower oil and half of the batter. Flatten the batter with a spatula and cook until the top is set, for about five minutes. Flip the pancake over and finish off on the other side, for about two minutes. Keep the pancake warm and repeat the process to use up the remaining batter.

To assemble the sandwiches, place two slices of cheese on each pancake, top with two slices of ham and then cover the ham with remaining slice of cheese. Put sandwiches under a broiler for just a minute or two until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.

Dok sam neki dan kopala po frižideru ustanovila sam da imamo cijelu gomilu nekakvih ostataka koje treba iskoristiti i čim prije pojesti. To mi se obično desi kada ne isplaniram točno unaprijed što ću skuhati, već me ulovi želja za raznoraznim stvarima, kao što su sir, ili kiselo mlijeko, ili torta. Međutim, torta je rijetko kada ostatak u našem kućanstvu, pa ne morati prethodno ispeći jednu da bi ste si složili ovaj sendvič. 🙂

Ovaj recept je otvoren za razne modifikacije pa slobodno možete zamijeniti kiselo mlijeko s jogurtom, kiselim vrhnjem ili mlijekom. Fila za sendvič je također prilagodljiva vašem ukusu, a bez problema možete dodati i neko povrće sa žara. Ili hrskavi špek.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 sendviča / 6,71 kn po sendviču / 13,42 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

¼ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50  kn)

Za sendvič:

6 šnita sira (4,00 kn)

4 šnite šunke (4,00 kn)

Dodatno:

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja za pečenje (0,40 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Napravite smjesu tako da skupa umutite jaje, kiselo mlijeko i sol. Dodajte sodu bikarbonu i brašno i dobro sve promiješajte dok ne dobijete glatko, gusto tijesto bez grudica. Pokrijte zdjelu prijanjajućom folijom i stavite u hladnjak na 30 minuta.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte tavicu od lijevanog željeza na srednjoj vatri. Dodajte dvije žlice suncokretovog ulja i pola smjese. Špatulom poravnajte smjesu i pecite dok se gornja strana ne stisne, oko pet minuta. Okrenite palačinku i zapecite za druge strane, još oko dvije minute. Držite palačinku na toplom i ponovite sa ostatkom smjese.

Složite sendviče tako da na svaku palačinku stavite po dvije šnite sira, pokrijte sa po dvije šnite šunke i za kraj poklopite šunku sa još po šnitom sira. Stavite sendviče na koju minutu odmah ispod grijača na pećnici upaljenog na najjače, tek toliko da se sir rastopi. Poslužite odmah.

Crispy Salmon Bites / Hrskavi zalogaji sa lososom

Oh god, these are good. I mean, this isn’t even a recipe. I’m basically telling you how to make sandwiches. But they are so good that I’m just gonna go ahead and talk about it.

IMGP2790

One baguette, cut under angle and lightly toasted (I used pumpkin seed)

Cream cheese spread

Piece of smoked salmon (I used warm smoked from Ikea)

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

IMGP2792

METHOD:

Spread cream cheese on toasted and cooled baguette slices. Add radishes, salmon pieces, sprinkle with scallion greens and season with black pepper. Serve immediately. Drizzle of olive oil would also be nice, but alas, we were all out of olive oil at the time.

Jao, kako je ovo fino! Mislim, ovo čak nije niti recept. U principu vam govorim kako da si napravite sendvič. Ali ovo je toliko fino da vam moram o tome ispričati.

SASTOJCI:

Jedan baget, narezan pod kutem i lagano tostiran (ja sam uzela sa bućinim sjemenkama)

Sirni namaz

Komad dimljenog lososa (ja sam uzela toplo dimljeni iz Ikee)

Par rotkvica, tanko narezanih

Zeleni dio jednog mladog luka, tanko narezan

Svježe mljeveni crni papar po ukusu

PRIPREMA:

Namažite sirni namaz na tostirani i ohlađeni baget. Poslažite gore rotkvice, losos, posipajte zelenje od mladog luka i začinite crnim paprom po ukusu. Poslužite odmah. Par kapi maslinovog ulja bi isto bilo super, ali eto, taman nam ga je doma ponestalo.
