Black rolls are an idea for an April Fool's Day joke or a "dark bread" for an evening with ghosts, i.e. Halloween.
Hamburger buns are stuffed with a beef cutlet and toppings or, like I do, with fried halloumi cheese.
You can also make smaller buns from the same dough. We make red spicy paste, e.g. from dried tomatoes with chili , and we have a snack for an evening with ghosts.
8 slices of halloumi cheese (1cm thick)
3/4 teaspoon salt
4g activated charcoal (purchased at a pharmacy, preferably in capsules)
1 tbsp sesame for sprinkling buns
1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar
20g fresh yeast
30g melted and cooled butter
30g milk powder
JUMPER FOR ROLLS
Mix all the ingredients for the leaven in a bowl and leave for 30 minutes.
Pour the flour into the second bowl, open the activated charcoal capsules and add it to the flour, mix thoroughly. Silicone gloves will be useful for this activity.
Add leaven, egg to the flour and knead the dough. Leave to rise, covered with a cloth for about 1 hour.
Use the risen dough, form 8 buns, place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and slightly flatten them. Cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 45 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Before baking, brush the rolls with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds. put in a preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes.
While the buns are baking, fry the slices of halloumi cheese in a small amount of oil.
Wash and dry the lettuce. Cucumbers, tomatoes and peeled onion are cut into slices.
Cut the warm rolls in half. Spread the flat part of the bun with ketchup, put slices of pickled cucumber and lettuce, then put a fried slice of halluomi cheese. Then, put a slice of tomato, mayonnaise, a bit of mustard on the cheese and cover with the top of the bun, fasten with a skewer and serve.
