Poppy Seeds and Sesam Bread (Panini al Sesamo e Semi di Papavero)

This is a very easy and quick way to bake your own bread, for breakfast, special occasions or if you just want to impress your guests. I use a bread machine just to mix and  knead the dough, which is the easier and faster way to do it. If you do not have one, you can do it by hands. It will take you some more energies and time but the result will be the same.

Makes about 14 small breads
500 gr Flour (55 type or another strong bread flour mix)
160ml water
40ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Wipped Eggs
1 teaspoon dried yeast
1 Tbs Sugar
1 Tbs Salt
1 Wipped Egg (for glazing)
2 Tbs Sesam Seeds (for decoration)
2 Tbs Poppy seeds (for decoration)
Add all the ingredients in the bread machine in the following order: Water, salt, flour, sugar, yeast, oil, 2 eggs (wipped).
Start the Dough programm and let it go till the end (about 1 and half hour). If you don't have a bread machine, add all the ingredients in the same given order in a mixing bowl and mix it with your hands. when all ingredients are mixed, tranfer the dough on  a floured surface and kned for minimum 15 minutes. Then put back the dough in the bowl, cover with a plastic wrap and let it grow for 1 and half hour minimum.
After 1and half hour take the dough out and make it a little flat on a floured surface.
Cut the dough in 14 pieces of 80gr each (weight them to have breads of the same size). Shape your breads following the instruction in the photo.
Place the breads in a baking tray, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let them grow for half hour in a warm place (about 25-30°C). Pre-heat the oven at 185°C.
After half hour, glaze the breads with the wipped egg using a kitchen brush, sprinkle the top with the Sesam and Poppy seeds. Place in the pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes at 185°C.
After the 15 minutes or when the breads turned golden brown, take them out of the oven and let them cool on a grid. Buon appetito!
