Caramelized Onion and Herb Scrolls

I love caramelizing Onions. The fragrance is divine. These fragrant onions stuffed into a buttery bread with basil and baked to perfection. These are probably one of the best things you’d come across today. You really cant stop at just one..So make a bigger batch maybe?

How to make Caramelized Onions and Herb Scrolls?

  1. Bread Dough – The bread dough is a basic soft and buttery brioche. You can make this recipe with just milk eliminating the eggs for a vegetarian option.
  2. Caramelized Onion and Herb Scrolls Filling – Caramelized Onions give a great flavour to these scrolls. I caramelized the onions half way through and not completely brown, as they cook further in the baking process. Adding Olives to the filling/recipe is OPTIONAL. You can use green or black olives. The second component to the filling is the butter. Melt the butter and add the powders etc. Mix well and let the butter cool till soft and spreadable.
  3. Shaping Rolls – Roll out the dough into a 14×8 inch rectangle and spread the softened butter over the dough from end to end. Sprinkle the caramelized onions and fresh chopped basil leaves all over. Now roll the dough tightly into a log. Cut into 10-12 even rolls and arrange in a lightly greased baking pan. Cover the pan and the let the rolls rise. The process is very similar to cinnamon rolls.

I used a 25cm x 15cm pan. You can get the pan here.

Storing

These scrolls are best had fresh out of the oven when hot. You can also store them at room temperature in an airtight container for 2 days. I would not suggest keeping any longer since it contains onions.
