    Wild Blueberry Brioche Buns
    1. Place flour, milk powder, sugar, salt and dry active yeast in a bowl. Create a well in the centre.
    2. Whisk melted butter, milk and egg together. Pour into centre of flour mixture and mix ingredients together.
    3. Dust a clean dry surface with flour and knead dough for approximately 10 minutes until smooth.
    4. Place dough in a clean bowl, cover with a large, clean kitchen towel and place in a warm spot for dough to rise for 45 minutes.
    5. Remove dough from bowl, gently distribute frozen wild blueberries to dough and knead just to incorporate, dusting with flour if necessary to prevent sticking.
    6. Divide dough in 8 equal portions, roll each piece into a ball and press down to flatten slightly. Place dough portions on a baking tray, lined with parchment paper. Cover with the kitchen towel and place in a warm spot to rise for 45 minutes.
    7. Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove kitchen towel and brush tops with egg wash.
    8. Bake in centre of oven for 13 -15 minutes, rotating tray half way through baking. Remove buns, place on a cooling rack until assembly.

    Chicken Sliders
    1. Mix ingredients in a bowl, form 8 patties and place on a large plate or tray.
    2. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a cast iron, or frying pan.
    3. Cook patties in batches on each side until caramelized and chicken is cooked through, approximately, 5-6 minutes per side.
    4. To assemble, place avocado slices on the bottom half of each bun, followed by Chicken Sliders, equal amounts of mango chutney, caramelized hazelnuts and arugula. Serve and enjoy.
    Recipe Notes

    Tip: You can also spread some liquid butter or olive oil over the buns and leave them in the oven until they are light brown. It will prevent the sauce from soaking rapidly into the bun.
