About this recipe:This is my Halloween themed bone bread. I shaped my homemade cheese and onion bread into bones for a Halloween treat! You can add as much cheese and onion you wish to have. I also put freshly ground pepper into the recipe, it will give it a nice, but not too strong kick! You may add as much pepper as you wish! Happy Halloween all!
Put flour, yeast, sugar (optional), salt and pepper (optional) into a large mixing bowl and mix together.
Add the butter, cheese, onion and warm water to the dry ingredients. Mix up the ingredients thoroughly and knead the ingredients on a lightly floured surface until it turns into a ball of dough. If the mix isn't turning into a ball of tough dough, add more flour and knead the extra added flour into the mix until doughy.
After you have kneaded your mix into a doughy ball, the next step is to get a medium sized bowl and lightly butter the inside of the bowl.
After you have lightly greased your bowl, put the dough into the bowl and place a tea towel over the top of the bowl and let the dough rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour until it has doubled in size.
While you are waiting for your dough to rise, pre-heat the oven to 230 C / Gas 8.
After your dough has finished rising, lightly flour your work surface and knead the dough for 2 minutes.
After you have kneaded your dough, cut your dough up into little rope shapes and start to make the shape if a bone, remember, this is Halloween themed so be creative with your bread bones!
After you have finished making a bunch of bread bones, lightly grease a baking tray and put half of your bread bones in the baking tray. Remember to give each little bone its own space, they will expand/rise when they are baking in the oven.
After you have put all the little bread bones on the two lightly greased trays, pop the tins into the oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown as shown in the photo.
After you have taken out the bread bones from the oven, take a spatula and remove all the bread bones onto a plate or rack to cook them down.
That's it! Very easy, have fun making them, I did! Happy Halloween everybody! Enjoy my recipe!
