Recipe of the Month—Khachapuri Stuffed Bread With Mozzarella, Feta Cheese and Baked Egg

This overseas treat can wow your customers, featuring Saputo Premium Gold Mozzarella



 

Ingredients:

Cheese Filling

2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1½ c. feta cheese
½ c. ricotta cheese

Mix all together in a mixer with a paddle for two minutes. Remove and set aside for assembly.

 

Dough

4¾ c. bread flour
1 c. warm water
½ c. whole milk
1 tbsp. light olive oil
1¼ tsp. instant yeast
1½ tsp. sugar

In a small saucepan, warm milk to room temperature. Remove from heat. Add water, sugar and yeast and mix. Let sit for three minutes. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl. Mix with a dough hook for eight minutes. After eight minutes, reduce mixer speed and drizzle in the oil. Increase the speed and mix for another two minutes. 

Transfer the dough into a large, oil-lined bowl and cover with a damp cloth.  Let sit in a warm area (about 73˚F) for one hour.

After one hour, punch the dough down and cover again, letting it sit for another 30 minutes in the same environment. 

 

Egg Wash

1 whole egg
1 tsp. water

Crack egg and mix with water in a bowl. Set aside until needed.

 

Assembly

1 batch dough
1 batch cheese filling
4 eggs
1½ tbsp. diced butter
Coarse finishing salt, kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
Egg wash, as needed

Preheat oven to 450˚F. After the dough has rested for 30 minutes, transfer dough onto a flour-dusted surface. Cut into four equal portions. Roll out into about an 8”-diameter round, about ¼” thick, and shape the dough edges into a football shape, pinching the tips.

Transfer onto a parchment-lined sheet tray. Fill doughs with 1 c. of the cheese filling. Egg wash the edges, sprinkle with finishing salt and cook in a 450˚F oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and make a well in the center with the back of a spoon. Crack an egg into the middle. Season with salt and pepper and add butter pieces around the egg. Return to the oven and cook for five more minutes. Serve hot.
