Scrap dough ideas?

Hey everyone. I am just curious what people do with "scrap dough." Sometimes I find that I like to make a little extra dough than is required for my bread in order to try different ideas, indulge in little experiments. I tend to make little finger foods more often than not; rolled dough stuffed with various treats. I enjoy making little 'hot pockets' filled with many things. Egg, cheese, and ham for breakfast; chicken breast, ham, cheese, herbs etc for lunch items. I also make pizza rolls, mini pizzas, or calzones, as well as mozzarella sticks. What does everyone else do?

I tend to make a special treat out of scrape dough for my husband. I chop up pieces of milk and dark chocolate and simply fold the dough around it (this works wonders with pizza dough). Egg wash (or milk wash) the top, sprinkle with a little sugar and pop in the oven. He adores this dessert, which I call chocolate calzones (he sprinkles a little icing sugar on top, and sometimes I'll make a homemade custard or pastry cream to go with them too)

Yummy Jessica!

We never seem to have left over bread dough...

Welcome to DC, flukx.

Here is an idea! Homemade ravioli! (This one is made with pizza dough.) Another thought is pot pies.

We like to make cinnamon rolls with any leftovers. Easy to make and who wouldn't want a nice, hot cinnamon roll?!

My mother used to make miniature cinnamon rolls with leftover bread dough. but I especially liked when she had leftover pie crust. She would roll it out and put butter, cinnamon and sugar on it and bake. It was like a grand tea party.

This isn't something you'd want to do everyday because it's really high in fat, but deep frying little pieces of scrap dough is really tasty. Right when you take them out of the oil you can season them either with sugar/cinnamon or can make them savoury by sprinkling on some pretzel salt and some kind of herb. (oregano is good)

It's a nice little treat...

Grumblebee, when I lived in La, one could buy uncooked bread dough at the bakery, and fry it up, drain, and sprinkle with powdered sugar. They used cane syrup to dip them in, but being the Yank that I am, I preferred maple syrup.

I have a fair-sized ball of leftover biscuit dough in the fridge from brunch yesterday, and I really don't know what to do with that.

Licia, my mom and grandma both did that. They are quite delectable.

We like to take hot dogs or keilbasa and cut into 4-5" pieces, then slit almost in half. Fill with things you like, we prefer saurkraut and mustard on keilbasa. But for hot dogs, we fill with onion, pickled jalapeno's, mustard, catsup and a sprinkling of shredded cheese.

Then you take a piece of dough and wrap it around the dog, sealing it well. Put it on a lightly sprayed baking pan and cook until golden brown at 350 degrees F.

These freeze well also.
