250 gr of frozen shortcrust dough
2 table spoons of sesame seeds
2 table spoons of aniseed (or other herb)
3 table spoons of grated Emmental cheese
1 egg white
150 gr of German smoked ham


Knead the dough together with the aniseed and the cheese. Shape the dough into small balls and place them in a round baking tin one next to the other. Beat the egg white with two table spoons of water and brush over the bread. Sprinkle sesame seeds. Bake the balls in a preheated medium heat oven at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes. Place the pieces of bread around a dish and the smoked ham in the center. Serve with pickles.


Make a big batch because they are never enough to feed your crowd during soccer nights!
