Cheese Buns (Bulemas "Falsos" For Shelly)

Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 12 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 cup 237mlWater
1 1/4 teaspoons 6.3mlSalt
1 teaspoon 5mlSugar
3 cups 187g / 6.6ozBread flour
2 1/2 teaspoons 12mlYeast
1/3 cup 48g / 1.7ozFeta cheese - grated
1/3 cup 48g / 1.7ozParmesan or Romano cheese
1 oz 28gVegetable oil - approx

Recipe Instructions

Grate all cheeses. (You may use parmesan or Romano cheese or a mixture of both. Amounts are approximate.) Place some of the parmesan/Romano cheese in a small bowl. Mix the remaining cheeses together.

Make the dough using the "dough" cycle of the Breadmaker. When done; take the dough out of the pan and squeeze out gasses. Make 12 balls of dough and place temporarily in a baking pan that is lined with vegetable oil. One at a time, take each ball and spread or roll (rolling pin is fine) into a six or seven inch circle. Place a generous strip of the cheese mixture along one side and roll up like a log.

Gently make a coil out of each log. If necessary, seal the end with a little water. Dip the top in some additional parmesan on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat until all of the balls look like cute little buns, then bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned. This recipe was adapted for the breadmaker from Mom's recipe for Spinach Bulemas.

I leave out the spinach because my husband, Shelly, HATES spinach! As a part of our Sephardic (Jewish) family tradition, Bulemas and hard boiled eggs are served before the main meal on holidays and after returning from synagogue on Saturdays.
