ITALIAN BREAD CONES (RECIPE BY PAM BURCSAK)
This recipe features bread cones stuffed with poached chicken, apples, avocado, fresh spinach, green onion, blue cheese, dried cranberries and slivered almonds. It’s dressed with mayonnaise to taste. My recipe makes six cones. I used the 6-inch cone form. Cone forms can be found on Amazon, but smaller forms are also available locally. Rulli Bros. stocks the 3-inch variety.
1 package Pillsbury Italian Bread Dough
1/2 chicken breast, poached and diced
1 small apple, peeled and diced
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
handful fresh spinach, chopped
1 or 2 green onions, diced
1/8 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/8 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup mayonnaise to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Bread cones: Cut baking dough into strips. Spray baking cones with non-stick spray. Wrap dough around baking cones. Place cones on baking sheet and bake according to instructions on Pillsbury dough package. Allow bread cones to cool.
Bread cone filling: Allow poached chicken to cool. In medium-size mixing bowl, combine diced chicken, green onions, cranberries, almonds and blue cheese. Gently add the chopped apples chopped spinach, and diced avocado. Gently blend in the mayonnaise. Salt and pepper to taste.
Fill cooled pastry cones with chicken-salad mixture.
