Shares 0

Breads…my one true love…i just love eating them. It could be made from any kind of flour, all purpose or whole wheat or rye…with oats or seeds or just plain..i love them all. Its no wonder that whenever we travel abroad..i just stare at the various boulangeries and order all the breads one by one and..well eat them. The aroma is just so heavenly and inviting isnt it?? This is what i look to create in my small kitchen. I keep experimenting with different type of breads / rolls and try and make them with different stuffings..today i write about a flavourful stuffing with cottage cheese and sweet corn. Here is my Cottage cheese stuffed dinner rolls with sweet corn.

These Homemade dinner rolls stuffed with cottage cheese (paneer) and sweet corn are an excellent way to get some protein and vegetables into my daughter.

If you ask any of my friends or if you have been following my instagram journey..it would come as no surprise that i bake breads loafs or buns or rolls quite often. My heart just longs for baking savoury kinds of breads ( i have even dreamt about them :D). I tend to ramble when i start talking about breads 😉

My Trip to Boulangerie

Various breads for breakfast in a boulangerie in Bastille, Paris
Recently when we traveled to Paris, we stayed in Bastille. Bastille is an amazing area to stay, full of restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. We used an airbnb kind of place to stay in Bastille. Most days we cooked breakfast at the place of stay..but on the other days it was always a short walk to the boulangerie or Bagelstein. Oh my… the variety of sandwiches or breakfast breads that they had to offer was simply amazing. The baguette with fresh mozarella, basil and tomatoes was my favourite to eat all day long. They were so simple…just 3 things on a bread and yet so much flavour.

Bagel Sandwich with roasted vegetables and cream cheese

Bagelstein also offered a variety of bagels and converted them into mouthwatering sandwiches..Being vegetarians we could only have one kind of sandwich filling – Cream cheese, salad leaves and roasted vegetables…but wow..how does it matter..simple and tasty..that’s how it was. The boulangerie also sold different variety of sourdough breads which we picked up and had for lunch and dinner..yup we are like that !!!

Why cottage cheese stuffed dinner rolls??

Coming back to reality…with a toddler at home, i am always looking at healthy options which are homemade to give her as a snack. These cottage cheese stuffed dinner rolls with sweet corn is an excellent way to get some protein and vegetables into my daughter.

My go to recipe for bread loaf or rolls is this one : Rosemary Rolls . Most of my bread recipes are a variation of this one…in this post i have mentioned the ingredients of the bread dough and have followed the recipe to shape them. You can also have a look at this Video for shaping the rolls.
