Cheese, Herbs & Ham Bread

I am always cracking my head every morning on what breakfast to serve my Princess and Prince so that they will eat up their breakfast fast enough. I have given food like bread with jam/Nutella, milk with KoKo Crunch as well as cake but seems like they always talk their own sweet time, chatting and eating away.

I remembered grandma says she like the texture of the Danish Bread loaf so instead of rolling the dough with butter, I used the bread dough recipe as my bread base. I added 1tsp of Thyme and Basil each, 2tbsp of shredded cheddar. After 1st proof, roll 100g of dough out, wrap with ham and cut out shapes with cookie cutter. Set aside to proof. 

As for the balance dough, I shaped into loaf and braided the balance dough tt I used for the cut-out bread. Haha.

I saw that Nigella did the same in one of her books too. She said it is fun doing this although the bread is not going to look like what they should be... Have fun experimenting your baking :D

Hi Priscilla,
You're not alone
I have the same headache about breakfast and what to bring to school!
Most of the time their breakfast is just like what u mentioned - bread/toast with nutella/jam/cheese slice/butter+chocolate rice, or honeystar/kokokrunch with milk, or cake/cupcake/muffin
And their lunchbox is usually bread too with the same filling, or burger o rice with nuggets, or fried rice
Your bread looks good, this can be of a change for my kids. Thanks for the idea :)
And thks for linking this up to LTU cheese :)
