focaccine al formaggio - Italian-style cheese buns

Баландина Алёна

Excellent, almost vegan dish. Buns are prepared very quickly and simply. The taste is tender, tasty, with a pronounced cheese flavor. Good for both tea and lunch.


  • 200 gr. flour
  • 50 gr. soft butter (I think extra virgin olive would work just fine)
  • 25 gr. oatmeal
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp soda, slaked (lemon juice)
  • 75 gr. grated white cheese (such as brynza or Adyghe)

Cooking method:

  1. Rub butter with flour.
  2. Add salt, soda, cereal and cheese, mix.
  3. Pour in the milk and knead well with a spoon (the dough should be soft and sticky).
  4. With wet hands, form small buns and lay them out at a distance of about 2 cm from each other on a baking sheet covered with parchment.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 200°C.
