brioche bread with sage on Eastern breakfast

For Easter Breakfast, here is the recipe of a bread rich of traditional flavours,
crispy outside and soft inside.

Ingredients for 12 people

For the little dough:
  • 300g of  flour 0
  • 2-3g of yeast
  • 150g of water
For the dough:
  • 700g of flour 0
  • 4dl milk
  • 140g butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 2-3g of yeast
  • 40g sage leaves
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 onions
  • extra vergin olive oil
  • butter and flour for the mold


1. The night before, prepare a little dough by mixing the ingredients until you form a ball; put it in an oiled bowl covered with plastic wrap, sealed in a cupboard.

2. The next day, peel the onions and chop coarsely sauté over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, turn off the heat and let cool. Wash and dry the sage leaves and chop finely , leave some apart for the decoration.
3. Heat the milk and melt the yeast in it, pour into a large bowl and stir in the flour previously sifted; mix the ingredients together and add sugar, salt, soft butter cut into chunks, eggs, onions, chopped sage and then the little dough. Knead until it forms a smooth paste (it will be very sticky so make use of a spatula), grease the surface with oil and let rise covered with a towel for 20 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 180°. After this time knead briefly the dough and pour it into 2 mold cassettes capacity 2.5 liters, previously buttered and floured, leave again for at least 30 minutes (I put them in the warm oven). Bake for 45-50 minutes and let cool on a wire rack.

Serve the sliced brioche bread with sage, accompanied with slices of sausage and sage leaves.

P.s.: It remains soft even 3-4 days in a closed bag.

Happy Easter to All
