Sushki, baranki, bubliki…. You have probably heard something about those. They are all similar – round, with hole in the middle and in most cases made of sweet dough. But sushki are much smaller and drier.
Usually we use all of them as a desert together with tea, but you can also dip them in something tasty – jam or sour cream, for example.
If you have seen the "The Barber of Siberia", you may probably remember the scene in the train where the main character said to the American lady an authentic Russian joke about bubliki: if you have eaten a bublik, what will remain? – The hole from bublic
I cannot say that we eat too many sushki or baranki now, but it is a part of our menu together with other cookies. Here, I want to share with you a very interesting recipe that utilizes sushki – easy to cook, very tasty and unusual. This is a snack made from sushki and mince. Yes, right – usual sweet sushki and meat You will like it too, if you try
You can use any sushki you got – round or oval, with popper seeds on top or without. I have to add that oval sushki are my favorite ones. If they are cooked well they are very light and crispy, and they are called “Chelhochok”.
First you put several sushkis in any liquid (water, milk or broth) for about 10 minutes. Meanwhileб prepare the mince. Sauté some onion, add it to the mince. Also add one raw egg, salt, black pepper, chopped herbs – to taste. You can add some grated cheese too. Mix all well.
Put suchki on a greased dish. Add in the hole of each sushka some mince and put the dish in a preheated oven. In about 20 min all is ready! Serve sushki with the souse made of mayonnaise, ketchup, chopped herbs and garlic to make the mince not too dry and the dish - really delicious.
I have to add that this is a quite widespread dish in Russia, but every cook tries to add something else to the recipe to make it more interesting. If you wish you can experiment also.
