Warm pillows of soft bread are great for mopping up all the lovely meaty juices and dressings that are part of any good barbecue.
1½ cups high grade flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 tablespoon chopped thyme
½ cup warm water
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat the grill on the barbecue to a medium/hot heat.
Put the flour, salt, yeast and thyme in a large bowl.
Combine the water, honey and oil then pour into the flour mixture. Mix to a soft dough then tip onto a lightly floured bench. Knead for a few minutes until soft and smooth.
Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Divide the dough into 8 pieces and pat them out into rounds about 1 cm thick. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to rise for another 20 minutes.
Cook over the grill bars for about 2 minutes each side until puffed and lightly golden. Serve immediately. Makes 8
