What do you do with leftover dough? January 27, 2009

I made another round of English Muffins (this round turned out much better than the last), but I ended up with a ball of dough that I didn’t quite know what to do with.  So I began to improvise.

I kneaded it down and cut a bunch of little english muffins (bite size) and cooked those up as per the larger ones.  The remainder of the dough I formed into a little boule, and pressed some thyme, parsley, and basil into the crust.  All of these went into the oven and we crossed our fingers.

The result:

And the english nuggets:

The little loaf was pretty tasty, but the crumb didn’t quite have the “spring” that my loaves usually do.  As for the nuggets, I should have stayed the course and kept them in the pan.  By placing them in the oven, I turned them into little pebbles.  The inside is nice and fluffy, but the crust is pretty dang hard.

Oh, well. Waste not, want not.
