Months ago I found this recipe for bread cones and I've been dying to make them ever since. The opportunity finally arrived and we made them for the start of the year BBQ. I stuffed them with a Curry Chicken Salad (recipe from a Woman's Day magazine, I think.)
Of course I forgot to take pictures of the final thing stuffed, but oh well. They turned out really well and they were very tasty.
First up is the Chicken Salad - I made a double batch
- 3 cups cubed chicken breast
- 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 4 tsp curry powder
- 2 pinches salt, sugar and pepper
- 1/2 cup diced red apples
I wanted to cut it up nice and small since I was going to be stuffing it into the bread cones. Next put it in a pan, fill it up with water and bring to a simmer. Let cook for about 5 minutes or until chicken is done. I think mine was longer since I made so much.
Meanwhile, cut up your apples.
Here I have 4 apples, turns out half a cup of apples = 1/2 apple. Oh well more snacks for meeee!
Next up in a bowl mix your yogurt and mayo together. You can always use a light/low fat mayo if you'd like. I am also thinking of trying this without the mayo altogether and just having the yogurt be the base.
Into that mix your curry powder and your salt sugar and pepper. Look I actually have measuring spoons that are labled as a pinch.
Next stir in the apple and once the chicken is finished that as well.
This is best to make the night before because the flavors come together and the yogurt marinates and chicken.
Now make your bread cones! - again, I made a double batch so feel free to cut these numbers in half.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup water
- 6 tablespoons oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 beaten eggs
- 3 teaspoon salt
- 4 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
- 7 cups bread flour (I used only 3 1/2)
Next beat up your eggs!
Add your eggs to the milk and water mixture along with 4 cups of flour.
Then add in your yeast.
Let your dough sit for about 10 minutes, then slowly start to add the rest of the flour. Once it becomes to hard to stir, dump it out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8 minutes. (Action Shots!)
Coat a bowl with oil and put your dough in there.
Cover with a cloth and let rise for about an hour or until doubled in size. Well the dough is rising, make your molds. I found the covers of magazines to be suitable. Rip them off and roll them into little cones. Tape them then cover them completely with aluminum foil.
Now punch that dough! knead it a couple times to get out the air bubbles. Now you have to break it up into smaller pieces, we did 32 of them.
At this point I had to go to bed and Steve took over. Roll the dough into a long thin strand and starting at the bottom of your mold, wrap it around like an ice cream cone. Works well if you grease your molds.
Put them on a greased baking sheet and brush them with an egg wash that is 2 eggs and 2tbsp milk. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
Right before the event stuff them with your salad and some lettuce.
