In bread-making, the water temperature is always important. It's not a fixed value, but related to 3 other temperatures: 1) the temperature of your flour, 2) the room temperature in your kitchen, and 3) the basic temperature of this recipe, which is 52-56°C.

2) Preparation of dough.

Put into a food-processor bowl: 343.2 ml flour, 30 ml instant mashed-potato powder, 175 ml water at the right temperature, 5 ml salt, 5 ml yeast, 15 ml olive oil and possibly 25 ml Soured dough.

Start on the slowest speed for 3 minutes, then a little faster for 6 minutes.

Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.

Preheat the oven to 240°C (460°F).

Bake the rolls for about 15 minutes.

Remarks

You can use Comté, gruyère or Emmenthal cheese, but Comté is by far the best.

If you serve these as aperitif snacks, don't be surprised if they all disappear - they are difficult to resist!
