After three sourdough recipes here are some less time-consuming bread recipes with yeast that you would certainly appreciate. Here are two sunny ideas for your bread rolls. The first recipe is a pull-apart loaf that might as well be cut in slices (which we did) while the second, coming from Turkey, is a bun filled with cheesy-herby surprise : )

Easy Fluffy Green Onion Sesame Rolls adapted from www.priscillaliang.com will make green onion flavoured super-soft loaf. Visit the website to get the entire recipe.
My changes: I mixed milk with water, used olive oil and fresh yeast. As for the filling, I did not add sesame oil. I brushed the rolls with some milk.
The recipe is really easy – you don’t even have to knead the dough that much!
The crumb: very soft!
The green onion creates the unmistakable flavour!
It was so sunny that day, I just could not stop…
Result: Very rich dough, soft and almost transparent if sliced thin. This can be enjoyed without anything else as it already has such a distinct green onion flavour!
Moving on to Turkey now:
Peynirli Poğaça or Turkish Feta and Herb Filled Savoury Buns adapted from www.mydiversekitchen.com will make little puffed buns with soft cheese filling always trying to escape! Check the website for the recipe.
My changes: I mixed milk with hot water, used honey instead of sugar, as well as fresh yeast instead of active dry yeast and kefir instead of yogurt. As for the filling, I used salty cream cheese from Serbia instead of Feta and red paprika instead of chili flakes. Be careful with salt as the real Feta is usually quite salty already!
I did not top the rolls with seeds as I knew perfectly well that they would all fall apart.) I made less buns, just 9. Here they are:
Result: I did not get the chance to taste these but I bet they were soft and ‘multifunctional’ with all the cheese inside! From the outside they reminded me of those pseudo Russian buns I was served in Sofia, Bulgaria. Was it this year?! How time flies!
