Garlic buns


Hi again! Yesterday we had the very Norwegian “dugnad” – community (somewhat) voluntary work. For the record I can´t stand anything that reminds me of communism, but it was about time I showed up since I had only participated once before in 4 years and people tend to notice. 😉 I took Sam with me and we rolled up our sleeves and did some gardening work in the back yard. We were a handful of people and in less than an hour I was done with my chores, so I could just drink some coffee and eat some soup to warm myself up. Throughout the whole seanse Sam was ecstatic, playing with some party flags, a football, then laying in the pile of leaves and sniffing everybody as soon as they arrived.


I then went inside and made some yummy minestrone soup and these amazing garlic buns that I soo recommend, just because I was feeling energised!


  • 500 g flour
  • 1/2 bag dried yeast
  • 1/2 ts salt
  • ca. 3.5 dl water
  • 1 tbs olive oil

Garlic butter

  • 150g soft butter
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • salt, pepper
  • some dried oregano or fresh thyme
  • 100g cheese

Oven temperature 200 C

Make the pizza dough by mixing flour, dried yeast and salt, then pour water and olive oil little by little until the mass is smooth and even. Cover and keep in a warm place until it´s reached its double size, around an hour.

In the mean time, make the garlic butter. Mix butter, garlic and herbs with a fork. Then add some salt and pepper.

When the dough is ready, knead it into a rectangular-shaped form and spread the butter in a thick layer. Strew the grated cheese on top. Roll into a thick sausage and cut into cute little snails.

25-30 minutes in the oven, then serve with hot soup. It was the bomb! 😉

Bon appetit! 😉

xxx, Alina
