Those of you that know me, know I thrive on the unusual. Nothing is more fun to me than trying a new and unusual recipe or creating one of my own. So when I saw this How to make Dorito Bread , I knew I had to try it. Almost everyone likes those...
I decided to use my favorite Ciabatta recipe as a base - have to put my own spin on this, ya know.
I made the starter on Friday night and let it do it's thing until Saturday evening.
|Full of ferment-y goodness|
Since I do not have a big powerful mixer, I only mixed in one cup of flour using my hand mixer
Then I kneaded in the rest
And then of course I missed taking pictures like a big dummy but I covered it and let it rise for a couple hours.
Then the fun part
I used the chopper attachment of my immersion blender worked great
Got 2 cups of Doritos, all ready to go
I realized the bread was pretty stiff and was trying to figure out the best way to get the chips in. I divided the dough in halves and then sorta smooshed them flat. Smooshed is a highly technical term
Then I piled the Doritos on and kneaded them in
And tada... a finished Dorito bread.. ready for it's second
Once it rose for the second time, I baked it for 20-25 minutes at 350.
Then it was time to make the Dorito butter. I again used my immersion blender chopper attachment. Chopped up the Doritos fine, added in the butter. and blended
Blopped it onto some saran wrap
Then flinged it around to make a log - chilled
And here is the final product - Dorito Bread with Dorito butter
This tastes pretty good. What would I do different? Well, the video shows using a stickier bread and I think that is easier to work with I've had good luck with this bread Tomato Pesto Batter Bread so I would use this one, but leave out the basil and tomatoes and add the Doritos instead.
