Chicken and Bacon puff rolls



Yesterday i was reading through the Bourke street bakery book-the ultimate baking companion ( Christmas gift from my two lovely blogger friends Jane and Helena) and try to understand the tedious steps on how to make my own bread starter, also admiring the beautiful croissant in the book. After i spent quite some time and i still don't quite understand how to make the starter ^_^, so i gave it up and continue flipping thru the book and this chicken and bacon rolls was caught my attention. So i decided to make this for today lunch.



Chicken and Bacon puff rolls


The original recipe call to prepare own puff pastry, but i use the store-bought puff pastry since i have one packet in the freezer for longer time. Anyway, next time i must try to make my own puff pastry.

Chicken and Bacon puff rolls



This roll is really yummy, crispy skin and nice savoury filling, you have to try this!

Hi Sonia, how come there is something red red in the filing? Do you put any chili? Agnes

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Agnes, no, i did not add chili, that should be the chicken meat turned brown after baked.

Sonia, this looks so delicious! Bourke St Bakery is also very famous for their pork & fennel rolls, everytime when I visited their bakery, we would surely buy the pork & fennel rolls.

Now I have more choices, reading from your entry here :D
