Cheesy Sausage Pesto Bun has been ages since I last made some bread. Bread making always my favourite activity during my free time. And my family simply enjoy savoury bread the most. I remember the first time when I started baking with pesto was my homemade pesto & cottage cheese pizza. My kids became addicted to pesto eversince then. My boy even using the pesto on his toasted bread. ;o) So, thought of making the pesto bread with their favourite chicken sausage the other day.  No doubt, it was really good.

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
Starter Dough
200gm  all purpose flour
1 tspn  yeast
100ml  warm water

Main Dough
300gm all purpose flour
4 TB  sugar
1 tspn  salt
1 large egg
80ml  water
60ml  sesame, basil & cilantro pesto
40gm  cold butter, chopped

*10 chicken sausage
*1 cup grated cheddar cheese
*1 TB  black peppercorn, crushed
egg glazing

Method :
(1) combine starter dough ingredient to form a dough, let to rest for an hour or till double in size.
(2) now, combine main dough ingredients together with starter dough (break into pieces) to form soft & sticky dough and again let to rest for 1-1/2 hour or till double in size.
(3) punch dough to release air and knead till smooth, then divide into 10 equal portions.
(4) roll each dough into long string and wrap around the sausage.
(5) place to greased baking tray & let to rest for 30 mins.
(6) brush on egg glazing and top with cheese & black pepper.
(7) bake at preheated oven 185'C for about 18-20 mins or till brown.

The texture of the bread is really soft. That's the result by using starter dough /pre-ferment dough and gelatized dough too will give you a very moist & fluffy buns. The bread is so so aromatic. Even my  kitchen smell like pesto. lol. Guess what! The breads are all gone before I managed to take down another few more shots by the next morning. Yeap....they just love it. They had them for supper the same night, then breakfast the next morning and they also took them to school for lunch. :o)
