This week, we've got another recipe inspired by Aunt Marge!

We're back to Chapter Two of the Prisoner of Azkaban "Aunt Marge's Big Mistake" for our next recipe:

"Each of her fingers blowing up like a salami"

Sorry Aunt Marge, looks like your hands are on the menu this week!

Making homemade salami might have taken a little too much time so instead, I decided to infuse salami into an iconic moment from the books and come up with an edible version of Aunt Marge's swollen hands!


This easy soft dinner roll recipe will help you bring these light and fluffy bread rolls to life with swirls of salami for added flavour. Making the homemade white bread roll dough only takes a few steps and can be used in the conventional bread roll shape - or transformed into something more magical!

Aunt Marge's Salami Bread Roll Recipe Ingredients

(makes 6 large rolls)


For the homemade soft dinner roll recipe

  • 200ml milk

  • 1 packet yeast

  • 1 tbsp caster sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 400g strong white bread flour

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 50g unsalted butter (room temperature, soft)

  • Good quality salami (thinly sliced)

  • 3-4 tbsp unsalted butter (to glaze)

For a vegan alternative:

  • Replace the milk and egg with 225ml of a dairy-free alternative

  • Replace the unsalted butter with vegan butter

  • Replace the salami with vegan cheese or pesto

Harry Potter Salami Dinner Roll Recipe Method:

  1. To begin you want to make the homemade bread dough by heating the milk until lukewarm. Add in the yeast and sugar, whisking until combined. Set aside for 5 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy (Wizard Tip! This is how you know your yeast is activating!

  2. After 5 minutes, crack the egg in and whisk until smooth.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and salt and then make a well in the middle. Pour the yeast mixture into the centre and then knead the dough for 5 minutes (if using a stand mixer) or 10 minutes by hand.

  4. Once the dough is smooth, add in the room temperature butter a spoonful at a time allowing it to incorporate before adding the next spoonful. Once all the butter has been added, knead for another 5 minutes until glossy and elastic.

  5. Grease a large bowl, place the dough in and cover with cling film before allowing it to rise for 1 hour. (Wizard Tip! You'll know it's ready when it's doubled in size)

  6. Knockback the air slightly by kneading the dough for 1 minute and then divide into 6 large balls. Take half of each portion and roll these into round spheres for the 'palms'.

  7. Divide the remaining half into 5 (1 for each finger). Roll these out until thin and place a salami slice on top. Ensure the dough covers each side and then roll into a finger. Repeat the process for the remaining 'fingers' but leave 6 pieces of dough for the thumbs.

  8. Lightly grease a baking tray and place 4 dough 'fingers' down. Place the rounded 'palm' on top ensuring it touches the bottom of each finger. Take the spare dough for the thumb and shape it onto the side of the palm. Cover the hands with cling film and allow to rise again for 45 minutes - 1 hour until doubled.

  9. Bake the dinner rolls at 180c (360F) for 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and glaze with melted butter. Allow to cool slightly for 5 minutes before removing from the tray and serving warm.

That'll teach Aunt Marge to insult Harry! At least she gets a tasty treat out of it...
