Method
1.
Follow the instructions on the wholemeal bread mix to make 8-12 bread rolls, allowing the dough to prove as per the mix instructions
2.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Season and cook the chicken breasts under the grill until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and allow to cool
3.
Once cool, shred or slice the chicken into thin strips. Use the large side of a grater to prepare strips of cucumber and apple
4.
Add the strips of chicken, cucumber and apple to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil, set aside
5.
To make a hedgehog, roll the bread into the shape of a hedgehog and use two small bits of dough to create eyes. Cut spikes using a pair of scissors
Room for a little one
Time to explore the little one’s creative side by letting them take charge of the shaping of the dough. They needn’t just make mice and hedgehogs; lions, sharks and rabbits are other alternatives
6.
To create a mouse, mould the dough into a mouse shape and use a little piece of the dough to create the eyes. Cut two ears using a pair of scissors
7.
Heat the oven to 200˚C/gas mark 6 and cook the rolls for 10–15 minutes or until golden brown - a hollow sound should be produced when you tap the base
8.
Slice the rolls in half and fill with the chicken, cucumber and apple salad. The rolls will keep in an airtight container for up 3 days, but are best served fresh
