Braids with leeks, ham and mozzarella

Since I fell in love with this dough, I said that I would make the most of it and that I would make it in any way until I run out of ideas, but I don't think there is a lack of ideas when you have a such dough at hand.

Today I made Japanese bread with Tangzhong and because I was alone at home, 2 loaves were too much for me, considering that I am at work most of the day, the only meal I eat at home is breakfast.

And as today the first meal of the day was completely missing, I thought I had to bury something next to the bread. Said and done, I opened the fridge, found some ingredients that I combined and used as a topping for my wonderful braids with leeks, ham and mozzarella.

Stay tuned for the list of ingredients and surely your breakfast or work or school package will be enriched with a new recipe.

How to make Leek, ham and mozzarella braids

Ingredients for thanzhong:

  • 40 g white flour
  • 200 ml of water

Dough ingredients:

  • 580 g white flour
  • 10 g of dry yeast
  • 12 g salt
  • 60 g sugar
  • 10 g milk powder
  • 260 ml milk at room temperature
  • 1 whole egg at room temperature

For topping:

  • 1 whole egg
  • The green part of a leek
  • 100 g of pressed ham
  • 100 g mozzarella
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation:

In a saucepan put the 40 g of flour with water and boil them over low heat until you get a translucent and sticky composition. Let it cool slightly.

Pour it into a bowl, cover with fresh foil and leave in the fridge for at least 6 hours. I left it overnight and it came out perfectly. Then, an hour before we actually start kneading, we take the bread out of the fridge.

In a large bowl or food processor we put the flour, salt, yeast, powdered milk, sugar, egg, half of the mayonnaise, half of the amount of milk and mix them with a silicone spatula.

Add the rest of the mayonnaise and milk and knead until you get an elastic, homogeneous and quite sticky dough. Don't worry, that's the way it should be. Turn the dough over on a work surface sprinkled with a little flour or greased with a drop of oil and shape into a ball.

Put the dough back in the bowl and cover it with cling film. Leave to rise for about an hour, but it may take even longer, depending on how hot it is in the kitchen, until it doubles in volume.

Pour the leavened dough on a work surface sprinkled with a little flour or greased with oil and divide it into 12 equal parts. I only photographed 6 of the 12 because half of it I made Japanese bread with thangzong. We gather the outer parts inwards and give the shape of a ball for each piece of dough. Cover with cling film and leave to ferment for another 15-20 minutes, depending on how hot it is in the kitchen.

Preparation for the filling:

Wash the leek and drain it well, cut it into juliennes, add the egg, salt, pepper and the chopped ham julienne. Stir.

We put the mozzarella on the large grater and set it aside.

We take each piece of dough separately and turn it with the part that was on the table and spread it rectangularly with the dimensions of 15/10 cm. Bring the top to the bottom and press lightly so that it sticks, come with the top over the turned one and press the end to stick again. Now we take the right and do the same we come to the left, we glue, from the left over the one on the right, we glue again.

Spread the rectangular dough again with the dimensions of 15/10 cm and cut the dough into 3 strips to the top base, then knit.

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.

We put them in trays lined with baking paper and leave them covered for 20 minutes with fresh foil for the last leavening.

Put the leek filling, lightly on the surface of the dough, sprinkle with grated mozzarella and bake for 25 minutes.

It's not really simple, but it's worth the effort, the dough will come out like a cake, which unfolds into strips - strips and with a phenomenal taste. From here I can only wish you good luck and good appetite!


  • 6 leeks
  • 2 medium onions
  • 300 g black olives
  • 50 ml of sunflower oil
  • 300 ml tomato paste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste

Leek food is a simple dish with an incredible flavor. It is made quickly and will satisfy even the most mocking diners.

Leek has an aroma very similar to that of onions, only more subtle and finer, so it is not surprising that it is such a beloved food.

This plant has its origins in the Mediterranean area, but is also found in many other regions of the world. For example, in Wales it has become a national symbol, and in Oltenia it is one of the most appreciated vegetables.

Leeks are tasty both raw and cooked. In raw form, it is an indispensable addition to salads. When cooked, it sweetens slightly and is particularly flavorful, making a good pair with polenta and homemade bread.

If you want to make a tasty and quick leek meal, all you need are a few ingredients and a free hour.

  1. Clean the leeks very well, remove the green tail and cut them into large pieces.
  2. Finely chop the onion.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion and leek, which are cooked until they start to soften.
  4. Add the tomato paste, black olives and mix well.
  5. The mixture is left to cook for a quarter of an hour, after which the bay leaves are added, as well as salt and pepper to taste.
  6. The food is left on the fire for another half hour, during which time it is stirred from time to time.
  7. Serve hot.


Leek gratin with ham

  • 4 pcs. leek
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • a little fresh thyme
  • 150 gr ham, thinly sliced
  • 100 gr cheddar cheese (for sauce)
  • 350 ml milk
  • 30 gr butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 25 gr grated cheddar cheese (for sprinkling)
  • a little blue mold cheese

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Clean the leek and, if you use several small pots for gratin, cut it in half, otherwise you can leave it whole.
Boil the leeks in salted water for 8 minutes or until soft. Drain well.
Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce as follows:
Melt the butter with a pinch of salt and pepper and, after it melts, incorporate the flour.
Add the milk, mix well and bring to a boil slowly.
When it reaches this point, without boiling, add the cheddar cheese and mix well with the whisk.
After the cheese melts, remove from the heat.
Roll the leeks into slices of ham and place them in a greased baking tray.
Pour the cheese sauce on top.
If you have time, let the mixture cool in the pan to thicken the sauce - it will be easier to add the topping without dipping in the sauce.
Mix the breadcrumbs well with the cheddar and the cheese with the chopped mold.
Sprinkle the tray evenly with this topping and bake at 180 degrees, without the lid, placing the tray on top of the oven.
