Three Swirls Breakfast Bread Rolls with Basil Pesto and Sun-dried Tomato
Mere looking at this bread makes me hungry!! Who will say no to these warm, fragrant and nutty, three-swirl breakfast bread rolls? At-least I cannot!! I am a big basil pesto fan. Pesto and tomato panini in starbucks always hits my week (craving star) mind and I cannot say no to it. With this bread, I wanted to capture all those yummy flavors of Starbucks Breakfast Panini into a ready to deliver package, with my fancy, homemade, breakfast bread rolls.

Believe me, my home was smelling like Italian Pizzeria with fresh Basil Pesto and Sun-dried Tomato Pizza just out of oven.

Today, I enjoyed this scrumptious bread for breakfast at home sipping my favorite Masala Tea Latte. Pure Heaven!!

This time too I made a big batch. Bread came out super moist and lite and filling was super fragrant and delicious. Even though basil pesto and sun-dried tomato make perfect pair, goat cheese and red pepper flakes make'em taste even batter. A few were ushered in our stomach (moments after it was out of oven) , half went to freezer, and a few, my husband took to wow his friends.

Don't you think it is good weekend cooking project? Make these gorgeous three swirl bread rolls (1-2 dozen) once over weekend, then whole week or a few days in week, just take out few frozen rolls, into the microwave for 2 minutes, apply some butter (though I like'em without it) and breakfast is done.

No heavy stuff, just one bread roll, portion controlled, satisfying and super-fast. How great does that sound? In-fact, you can serve some on the side with pasta or soup for dinner too.
