Portuguese chorizo bread

16 Jun 2014

It is an odd day today. We will be watching a game where we will be rooting for a team while most of the other people around us will be rooting for the opposite team (literally).  As we live in Germany, I guess our cheers will be quiet against the huge backdrop of German cheers in the city. 

As Portugal plays its first match against Germany today, we celebrate by munching on these little breads while watching the game. These are family favourites and great comfort food.
 You can make the dough with whatever flour you like and simply add a slice or two of chorizo inside before baking. Here is our family version of the recipe.


  • 365 ml of warm water;
  • 1pinch of salt;
  • 1/2 Kg of plain flour;
  • 15 g of bread yeast;
  • Slices of hard chorizo (as many or as few as you like).
  • Place the flour and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Make a hole in the middle and pour the yeast and water.
  • Stir everything with a spoon or your mixer.
  • Leave to rest for at least 15 minutes.
  • Shape your dough (either in small round balls or a long bread loaf). 
  • Add the chorizo slices to the dough.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes on a medium heat. Baking time will depend on your bread shapes. 

Dig in!
