Grana Padano puffed buns (panini sfogliati)
Chef Danilo Cortellini
Deliciously crispy and fluffy buns with a rich cheese flavour? Yes please, they definitely make the list of my top recipes. When you take a look for the first time at these Grana Padano puffed buns it is normal to feel like they have been bought in a bakery as you might think there are a lot of skills involved to achieve such detailed result, but I can assure you that, following the steps this could prove to be one of the easiest (and satisfying!) homemade bread recipe you have ever encountered. And only with a few ingredients too! What’s not to like.
Chef’s tip: The Grana Padano buns are delicious on their own but have them with a slice of Parma or San Daniele ham and rocket salad for a heavenly snack!
1 cup (200 g) of shaved or grated Grana Padano
2 cups (250 g) of 00 flour (plus extra for dusting)
5 fl oz (150 ml) of water
1/3 cup (8 g) of fresh yeast
1/3 cup (70 g) of softened unsalted butter (plus extra to grease)
3/4 tsp (4 g) salt
Black pepper and rosemary to garnish
