In a mixing bowl combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix 1 minute. Next add water and half of the beaten egg. Mix. Add butter and mix until combined. Knead by hand until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
Cover the dough and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. After that, punch the dough down and make a ball and allow the ball to rise for another 10 minutes .
In a pan heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and mix it around until it’s softened. Next add onion, salmon and the diced boiled potato. Mix until onion is softened and everything is heated through. Add tomato, pepper, and salt. Mix well .
Roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick using a rolling pin. Cut the dough into 6 triangles (3×6 inch). Now place a tablespoon full of curry mixture in the middle of each triangle. Now roll each triangle up beginning with the wide side, then shape the rolls into crescent shapes.
Take the appetizer and place on a greased baking tray and allow to rise for another 25 minutes. Next brush the remaining beaten egg over the top of the appetizer .
Bake at 200ºC for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
I love grilled cheese sandwiches and have since I was little, and it meant nothing more than a slice of American cheese between two slices of Wonder Bread.
This time, I wanted to make something using sharp Cheddar combined with apples, as those two are such classics together. The result? A fabulous grilled cheese with pancetta, Cheddar, and apples on a croissant.
This is basic country food at its finest. Lisa Smith, the executive chef for Central Market supermarkets in Texas, was visiting us at the farm and one morning we brought her to Max London’s in Saratoga Springs for breakfast. Their croissants blew her away and she called them the best she ever had (and Lisa knows croissants — she studied under the wonderfully gifted chef-teacher Madeleine Kamman and worked in France). She bought a few to bring back to the house and, upon arrival, said to Charlie and me, "Guys, today you rest. I’m making egg salad for lunch!" Of course, Lisa’s egg salad isn’t just egg salad — it’s creamy and warm and punctuated by the slight bite and crunch of arugula/rocket and smoky country bacon.

Have you ever had a croissant bun? Other than the ones we make for La Boulange, you can't find them anywhere, so it's not really a fair question, and this photo is a bit of a tease. A brioche bun, any kind of soft burger bun, or the traditional hot dog roll works well with this sandwich.
