|First Try - Creole Stuffed Bread|
What these are is spiced meat wrapped in bread dough, then baked. In Lafayette, they were really spiced (but not hot spicy) and crazy good at 6am before starting construction. Stuffed with beef, pork, spicy sausage, tasso and seasonings. wow.
So I tried to make them
Of course, since we eat on a diet, mine are mo' bettah for you, if not mo' tasty.
I used Rhodes Whole Wheat frozen bread dough. I am not a baker and I did not want to mess with the effort. I also substituted other things in.
1 loaf frozen bread
1 lb ground chicken
1/2 onion tiny dice
1 stalk celery, same
1 tbs Penzey's Cajun Seasoning
2 Chicken Andouille Sausage, diced small
2 handfuls spinach, chopped up
Thaw bread according to instructions
Cut each loaf into three pieces
Turn oven on to 350, put in baking stone (pizza stone)
Toss all other ingredients into a frying pan, cook till done
Put in freezer for 15 minutes to cool
Using flour or cooking spray, roll out each piece of dough into an eight inch round or so
put in 1/3 mix of food
Roll into a ball (to tell you the truth, not sure the best way of doing that - I even looked on youtube and did not find good instructions...so i did the best I could - you can tell from the pictures it was somewhat variable and the bottom is far breadier than I remember at the Circle K. Here are instructions on how to make a calzone - I think I will try a variation of this next time, but still try to make a ball.
Let rest 15 minutes
Put on baking stone, cook for about 40 minutes.
Let cool on baking rack for 10 minutes
Mmmmmmmm. I will have to make some vegetarian ones also - Broccoli, wild rice and cheddar anyone?
