Filled Party Bread in a Flower Shape

After being invited to a Party, I wanted to bring a filled Bread that goes well with the salads and BBQ.
So I went to search for “pretty” looking breads and found this youtube video for a flower shaped bread. You can fast-forward to minute 4.30. A very easy way to get some Aaah’s!! and Oooh’s! at the next Party. Promised!
For the dough I use a brown flour base and filled it with Pesto, Sun dried Tomatoes, Olives and Bacon. The great thing about those breads is, that you can fill them the way you want or even make one half different then the other one. Other luscious fillings could be with Onion, Garlic, Nuts, Ricotta, Cream Cheese, Tomato base, Ham, Chorizo, Mushrooms, other Cheeses….and create a bread that for example goes more into the direction Pizza or the Alsace Tarte Flambée.

The bread turned out great. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Next time I might use the white butter dough from my Braided Bread. Depends if it’s again for a BBQ, where I would recommend the brown flour base, or if it’s for a Buffet.
