      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place milk, butter, salt, sugar into the mixing bowl, and heat for 3 minutes/ 40 degrees/ Speed 1


  2. Add flour, yeast, lemon rind to bowl. Have your oil ready to pour into bowl lid as the mixture is combining on, 15 secs/ Speed 3


  3. Knead the mixture for 2 minutes/

    Dough will be soft, not sticky. Roll into a bowl, and wrap into Thermomat or in a clean dry bowl (Covered with a tea towel or cling wrap) and leave to prove in a warm area for approx 30 minutes or double in size.Clean and dry mixing bowl.

  4. Bacon Filling
  5. Place onion in bowl and chop for 3 seconds/ Speed 5

    Scrape down sides of bowl.

  6. Add Butter to bowl and saute for 3 minutes/ 120 degrees/ Speed 1

  7. Add bacon to bowl and combine for 5 seconds/ Speed 2

    Remove from bowl to cool, and season well with salt and pepper.

  8. Assembling
  9. Preheat oven 200 degrees.

    Knock down dough, and cut into 4 even amounts. Using one ball of dough at a time, roll into an oval shape and cut into smaller even amounts. I make about 6-8 for each roll. (Slightly bigger is easier to handle to begin with)

    Roll one into oval shape (Roughly palm size, see picture)

  10. Place one teaspoon of mixture onto middle of dough and join the middle down, shaping into a crescent. Place onto baking tray. Continue until all of the dough and bacon filling have been assembled.

  11. In a small bowl, whisk egg and milk with a fork. Use a pastry brush to brush over each roll lightly.

    Bake in oven for 15 minutes.

Pīrāgi are a Latvian crescent shaped roll filled with bacon & onion.I loved converting this recipe as it was passed down to me by my Nan who made these for us since I was a child.

They're traditionally used as an appetizer or for a light lunch.


Plain or baker's flour can be used in the dough. I have used both.
