Brie in pastry and vegetable fried bread


The last couple of years, I saw a brie in a puff pastry as appetizer for Christmas season. I had some puff pastry that I made for pasteis de belem, and I wanted to give it a try......I must is delicious!

Puff pastry

120 grams of flour

120 grams of diced very cold butter

60 grams of water

a pinch of salt

Mix all together, let it rest for 1 hour in the fridge. Then, with a roll pin fold it in "book" style. You have to do it once every hour, in total 4 times or  hours.

Caramelize 1 onion. Place a brie on the puff pastry. On top of the brie, place the caramelized onions and a branch of fresh rosemary. You can use oregano, a bay leaf, or a sage leaf. Close it, and brush it with egg. Bake it at 375F until golden brown. Serve it warm. Enjoy!

I saw this recipe in youtube

It is delicious!. I adapted a little bit

Bread with vegetables (It is more like a pancake)

1 eggs

pinch  of salt

1 tablespoon of granulated sugar

1/2 tablespoon of sourdough (optional)

1 tablespoon of dry yeast

3/4 cup of warm milk 

3/4 cup of warm water 

2 cups flour 

dry herbs

bell peppers


2 medium potatoes grated (raw)

1 leek sautee and chopped.

50 grams of ricotta

50 grams of parmesan cheese grated

oil for frying

Sautee all the vegetables 3 minutes. They have to be middle cooked.

Mix the milk, sugar and yeast until is foamy (10 minutes). Mix the foamy yeast with the flour, egg, and the water. Add slowly the water until you have a mix like a batter for pancakes. Let it rise for 1 hour. Add all the veggies, and the cheese. Fry them in small batches. Enjoy!
