This is a basic bread recipe so feel free to add seeds or use wholemeal flour, as preferred.

Eat the alphabet: Un-sandwiches. Photo: Julian Kingma


1 sachet dry yeast

1 tsp sugar

300g lukewarm water

500g bread flour

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil

100g grated cheese

100g chopped ham



Stir yeast and sugar into the warm water and leave for a few minutes until it becomes frothy. Place the flour into a large bowl or mound it on a benchtop and make a well in the middle. Add the frothy yeast mixture, the salt and the oil. Bring ingredients together then knead for five to 10 minutes until glossy and elastic.

Leave in a warm place to rise for an hour or so. Punch down and shape as desired. Place dough on a baking tray, cover with a damp tea towel and leave for 15 minutes to rise again.

Preheat oven to 200C.

Sprinkle shapes with water then cover with grated cheese and chopped ham. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown in appearance and responds with a hollow-sounding "tonk" when tapped.

Note: Alternative toppings include chopped garlic, rosemary and olives.
