Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons one stick, butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large russet potato unpeeled, and cut into ½" cubes
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil divided
  • teaspoons kosher salt divided
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper divided
  • 1 pound of bacon cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 1 package 2½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water 110-115 degrees, warm to the touch
  • tablespoons granulated sugar divided
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour plus additional for kneading
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil divided
  • 8 ounces grated mozzarella cheese divided
  • cup sliced scallions both white and green parts, divided
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce divided
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix the softened butter, Greek yogurt, and salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Toss the cut potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  • Spread the potatoes evenly on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated oven until lightly golden and softened. Set aside.
  • Dissolve the yeast in a small bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons sugar and allow the mixture to get foamy (approximately 5 minutes).
  • Place the flour in a bowl of a stand mixer along with 1 teaspoon salt.
  • Stir in the foamy yeast into the flour mixture and mix with the dough hook until the dough forms a shaggy ball.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and hand-knead the dough for 2-3 minutes.
  • Return the dough to the bowl of the stand mixer, cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled (approximately 60 minutes).
  • Once doubled, divide the dough into two equal pieces.
  • Roll each half of dough out onto a lightly floured surface (keeping the other covered to not dry out) to form an approximate 13″ circle (roughly ¼” thick).
  • Drizzle and evenly spread the dough circles evenly with 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil, half the roasted potatoes, half the green onions, half the bacon, half the shredded cheese, and a sprinkling of black pepper.
  • Gently but tightly roll the dough into a jelly roll or long snake form.
  • Once fully rolled, carefully and gently stretch the dough to elongate and even out the thickness (if needed).
  • Starting at one end of the roll, coil the dough for form a large spiral.
  • Gently flatten the spiral with your hand to form an approximate 10″ disc.
  • Continue the same process with the other half of the dough and the remaining ingredients.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil to a large cast-iron skillet and cook the bing bread over medium/high heat until golden brown on both sides.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce and ½ tablespoon sugar.
  • Brush one side of the browned bing bread with a liberal amount of the soy sauce mixture and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sesame seeds.
  • Place the skillet into a preheated oven and bake for approximately 13-15 minutes until cooked through.
  • Remove and repeat the same process with the second coiled disc.
  • Bing bread is best served warm, cut into wedges, along with the yogurt butter.
