1. Savory Party Bread

You'll need:

  • 5 eggs
  • 3⅓ fl oz milk
  • 8 hot dog buns

For version 1:

  • 7 oz feta
  • 3½ oz dried tomatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 3½ oz black olives, in rings

For version 2:

  • 7 oz cooked ground beef
  • 7 oz grated cheddar
  • 1¾ oz jalapeños, in rings

Here's how:

1. Mix the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Split the hot dog buns into three and dunk them in the mixture.

2. Place a glass in the center of a cake springform pan and fill the space around it with hot dog buns.

3.1. For version 1, sprinkle a third of the feta, tomatoes, and olives on the buns. Layer the party bread as follows: buns, filling, buns, filling. Add some stability to the layers by pressing them down with the back of a tablespoon. Bake the bread in a convection oven set to 320°F for 35 minutes.

3.2. For version 2, sprinkle half of the ground beef and jalapeños onto the buns, but only use a third of the cheese. Continue by adding another layer of buns, filling and then the rest of the buns. Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese for the last layer. Bake the bread in a convection oven set to 320°F for 35 minutes.

You'll need:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3⅓ fl oz milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1½ oz sugar
  • 10 soft bread rolls

For version 1:

  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp cranberry jelly
  • 2⅔ oz raisins

For version 2:

  • 8¾ oz vanilla pudding
  • 2 peeled, diced apples
  • 4 tbsp caramel

Here's how:

1. Mix the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and sugar in a large bowl. Cut the soft bread rolls in half and dunk them in the mixture.

2. Again, place a glass in the center of a cake springform pan and surround it with half of the the rolls.

3.1. For version 1, first spread cream cheese onto the rolls before adding the cranberry jelly. Sprinkle on the raisins and cover the filling with the rest of the soft rolls. Bake the bread in a convection oven set to 320°F for 35 minutes. Add some dollops of cream and sift icing sugar over everything before serving. 

3.2. For version 2, spread vanilla pudding onto the rolls. Add the diced apple and caramel before covering the filling with the rest of the soft rolls. Next, bake the party bread in a convection oven set to 320°F for 35 minutes. Decorate the bread with some frosting and any remaining diced apple for the finishing touch.
