Wrapping up our ode to strawberries this month, let’s not forget the savory side of this berry. A flaky, buttery crust full of freshly ground black pepper encases a creamy filling of spinach and goat cheese. Topped with fresh strawberries to highlight the simple perfection that is a ripe strawberry, and then drizzled with a balsamic vinegar glaze.
We started doing something new this year, featuring recipes from home bakers or small bakeries/food businesses using the Ankarsrum mixer. It has been a delicious project and we have loved trying out all the new (to us) recipes. Home baker Joy Zbinden was generous enough to share her mom’s recipe for Butternut Rolls, and they are amazing.
Toasted sesame seeds folded into a soft fluffy dough, and surrounding a surprise filling of feta and Kalamata olives. These buns are stellar on their own or a major upgrade for a burger or sandwich.
