Spinach and Cheese Bread

Make your own dough for this super bread, or you can use one from the store. We’ll make our own, though. The stuffing mixture of cooked spinach and cottage cheese make this dish a truly special one. This can be served in many, many ways, but we let you elaborate on this.

Ingredients Needed for Spinach and Cheese Bread

For the dough:

3 ½ cups of flour
salt
1 teaspoon sugar
¼ cup olive oil
1 egg white
¼ cup milk

For the filling:

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 pound frozen spinach, thawed
¾ cup cottage cheese
1 egg
salt
pepper
1 egg yolk, whisked (for coating)

How to Cook Spinach and Cheese Bread

For the dough:
  1. Add the ingredients for the dough to the dough mixer bowl. Mix until you have a dough. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For the filling:
  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat. Add the spinach, stir in and cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Transfer it to a bowl and add the cottage cheese and the egg. Season with salt and pepper. Mix until even and set aside.
  3. Dust the work surface with flour and place the dough on it. Cut it in half using a plastic knife.
  4. Take one half of the dough and flatten it using a rolling pin. Evenly spread 1/2 of the spinach-cheese mixture on it. Roll. Do the same with the other half of the dough and the remaining mixture.
  5. Place the two rolls side by side and braid them together. Carefully transfer to a roomy loaf pan. Coat with whisked yolk and bake for 50 minutes at 400⁰F/200⁰C.
