  •     ½ cup Whole Milk (120 mL)
  •     2 ¼ tsp Active Dry Yeast (7 g)
  •     3 ¼ cups Organic Unbleached White All-Purpose Flour (442 g)
  •     2 Tbsp Sugar (30 g)
  •     2 tsp Kosher Salt
  •     1 Egg (50 g)

Tomato Basil Filling

  •     8 oz Feta Cheese (226 g)
  •     ¼ cup Olive Oil (60 mL)
  •     ⅓ cup Sundried Tomatoes in Oil, drained (65 g)
  •     2 Garlic Cloves
  •     3 Tbsp  Dried Basil
  •     ½ tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  •     ½ tsp fresh cracked Pepper

  1.     In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Whisk in water and milk and heat again (if necessary) until the mixture is between 110-120°F. Stir in yeast until completely dissolved and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2.     While yeast rests, combine flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix briefly to combine.
  3.     Add yeast mixture and egg to the flour. With the dough hook attachment, mix on low until a shaggy dough is formed, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Increase the speed to medium low and mix for 5-6 minutes. Dough will be sticky, but smooth. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  4.     To make the filling, add all the tomato filling ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  5.     Turn risen dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll it into an 18 x 14-inch rectangle, with the longer edge facing you. Spread the tomato mix evenly edge to edge. Starting on the long side, roll the dough into a tight log.
  6.     Spray a standard muffin tin with nonstick spray. Slice the log into twelve 1 ½ inch pieces. Place rolls in a muffin tin, cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400ºF.
  7.     Whisk together the egg wash and generously brush over the risen rolls. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.
