Dandelion Leaf Swirl Bread Recipe

Dandelion Leaf Swirl Bread


Dandelion leaves, garlic, and cheeses are rolled up in dough to create a delicious bread loaf that will become a new favorite.


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup minced garlic
  • 1 pound dandelion leaves, chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces freshly grated mozzarella cheese
  • 5 ounces freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups lukewarm water
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add dandelion leaves and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until dandelion is wilted, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese until melted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Combine water, honey, and yeast in a large bowl. Allow yeast to proof until a creamy foam forms on top. Add flour and salt. Knead mixture until a dough forms, adding flour as needed if dough seems too wet.
  3. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Spoon dandelion mixture on top. Roll dough starting from one side into a log shape; make slits on top using a sharp knife. Cover with a damp towel and set in a warm location to rise, about 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Combine garlic and melted butter in a small bowl and brush mixture on top of the loaf.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
