Bialy

Bialy

Method

For the dough:

  • Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper. Lightly dust with corn starch.
  • Combine ½ cup water, yeast and sugar in a bowl. Stir with a fork to combine.
  • Set the mixture aside for 10 minutes or until bubbles start to rise to the top.
  • When ready, add the remaining water, salt, corn flour and all-purpose flour.
  • Knead mixture with your hands or beat in a mixer for 8 minutes, using the hook attachment, until soft and smooth. It should be a soft dough.
  • If your dough is too runny or not coming together, add 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour at a time, until you create the desired dough.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and transfer to a bowl brushed with oil. Turn it over to coat it with oil all over. Cover with plastic wrap and set it aside for 1 ½ hours to rise, until it triples in size. When it rises, press down on it with your hand to release the air. Cover with plastic wrap again and let it rise for another 45 minutes, until it doubles in size.
  • When ready, brush a working surface with oil and turn dough out on to it. Press down on it again to release the air and roll out into a round shape.
  • Cut out the dough into 8 circles, 10-12 cm in diameter with a cookie cutter or a sharp knife.
  • Transfer the circles of dough on to a lightly floured surface. Cover with a towel and let them rest for 10 minutes. Gently work with the dough to give it a nice cylindrical shape that is higher at the edges than in the center.
  • Transfer them to baking pans. Cover with plastic wrap and let them rise for 30 minutes, until they become almost ½ an extra size. Do not let them rise too much.
  • Press down in the center of each circle of dough with your thumbs, creating a small well that is about 2 ½ cm deep. Fill the well with about 1 teaspoon of the filling and dust with flour. Cover with plastic wrap and let them rise again for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • When the dough is ready, remove the plastic wrap and transfer to oven. Place one pan on the higher oven rack and the other on the lower rack. Bake for 6-7 minutes.
  • Rotate the pans and bake for another 6-7 minutes, until golden.
  • Bialy is just like a bagel. They are soft so they should not be overbaked.
  • When ready, remove from oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
  • When cool, store them in a plastic bag so the surface can soften and stay soft.
  • Serve warm with cream cheese.

For the filling:

  • Melt the butter in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the flour and whisk quickly, being careful not to let the flour stick to the bottom or sides of the pan and burn.
  • Heat the milk a little and start to add it to the butter mixture in small batches while whisking continuously, making sure no lumps form.
  • When you have added all of the milk, add the grated cheese and whisk until it melts and is completely incorporated.
  • When ready, set it aside until needed.
  • Remove the casing (membrane) from the country sausage. Use a sharp knife to help you.
  • Finely chop and brown in a pan over medium to high heat. Do not add any oil because the sausage will release its own fat while cooking.
  • When it has browned nicely, remove from heat and set aside for 1-2 minutes and add it to the béchamel sauce in the saucepan.
  • Stir to combine and your filling is ready. Season to taste.
