For the dough
  • 250 ml milk – lukewarm
  • 40 g butter – very soft
  • 1 tsp bread yeast
  • 300 g strong white flour
  • 100 g plain white flour
  • 1 tbs grain mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
For the filling
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion – finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 rashers streaky bacon – finely chopped
  • 2 pork sausages – skinned and broken up
  • 2 tbs heaped chutney
  1. Add the butter and yeast to the lukewarm milk and allow to stand in warm place until the yeast has started to froth.
  2. Place the flour into a large bowl and mix, add the milk mixture, mustard and salt.
  3. Knead for 5-10 minutes on a floured surface or in your food mixer with a dough hook for 5 minutes. Cover (I use a hotel shower cap) and leave in a warm place until doubled in size (about 45 minutes).
  4. Fry the onion, garlic, bacon and sausage meat over a low heat until soft.
  5. When the dough is risen knock it back and flatten out until about the size of a baking tray.
  6. Spread the chutney over and then the onion, bacon and sausage mix. Roll up along the long edge to make a dough swiss roll.
  7. Slice into 7 pieces and arrange in an oiled 26cm spring form tin – one piece in the middle surrounded with the other 6 slices. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
  8. Bake at 200c / GM6 for about 30 minutes – if you like you can sprinkle some grated cheese over for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  9. Allow to cool for a few minutes, run a knife around the outside of the bread before removing from the tin.
  10. Enjoy warm.
