Coco bread is the Jamaican version of buttery and sweet yeast-risen dinner rolls. In New York City, they are often sold wrapped around a Jamaican beef patty with a slice of American cheese, but at Miss Lily's in Manhattan, the chef Adam Schop serves them with garlic butter flavored with thyme, a commonly used herb in the Caribbean. Note that the origin of the name coco bread is up for debate: Some say original recipes called for coconut milk, others that the dish is named after a similarly named brand of Jamaican butter.

- Make the garlic butter: Melt butter over low heat and add garlic. Raise the temperature slightly and cook just until butter is frothy; do not let the garlic brown. Remove from heat, add thyme and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Make the bread: Dissolve the yeast and sugar in 1/4 cup/60 milliliters warm water and then stir in milk, salt and egg.
- Add half the flour and stir, continuing to add the remaining flour until dough can be turned out of the bowl. (You may not need all of the flour.)
- Turn out the dough onto a floured work surface. Knead dough for 10 minutes until smooth but firm. Transfer dough to an oiled, clean bowl. Cover with a damp towel and let rise for 1 hour.
- Cut dough into 10 portions and roll each piece into a 6-inch diameter circle. Brush each piece with melted unsalted butter and fold in half. Lightly flatten each piece with the palm of your hand, brush again with melted unsalted butter, then fold in half again.
- Place pieces on an oiled baking sheet, cover loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap and let them rise in a warm place until they double in size, about 1 hour.
- Heat oven to 425 degrees and set a pan of hot water on the lowest oven rack. Bake bread on upper rack for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Use pastry brush to apply melted garlic butter to the coco bread while still hot.

- Make the coco bread: Sift the flour into a large bowl, then add the sugar, yeast, and salt and whisk to combine.
- In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the coconut milk and ¼ cup coconut oil.
- Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon or spatula to stir until a shaggy ball forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes, until smooth. Shape the dough into a ball, tucking the ends underneath.
- Grease a large bowl with coconut oil, then transfer the dough ball to the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until at least doubled in size, 1½-2 hours.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease with nonstick spray.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with the melted butter.
- Gently punch down the dough and knead for 10 minutes more, until smooth and elastic. Use a bench scraper or knife to divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, about 5 ounces each. Working with one portion of dough at a time, roll into a taut ball by cupping your hands over the dough and rolling against the counter, tucking the ends underneath. Repeat with the remaining dough.
- On a clean surface, use a rolling pin to roll a dough ball out to a 7-inch circle. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush the surface of the dough with the coconut oil and butter mixture, then gently fold the dough in half to make a half-circle and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough. Brush the tops of the half circles with more of the butter mixture, then let rest for 15-30 minutes before baking.
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Bake the coco bread for 15 minutes, until golden brown and puffed. Remove from the oven and immediately brush the tops with the remaining butter mixture. Let cool before serving.
- Make the Jamaican beef patty dough: Add the water, egg, and vinegar to a liquid measuring cup and whisk to combine.
- Add the flour, curry powder, sugar, and salt to the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Add the cubed butter and pulse 10-12 times, until broken down into pea-sized chunks.
- Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and pulse 5-7 times, until the dough comes together in a ball. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and use your hands to bring it together, then divide into 2 portions and shape into balls. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes while you make the filling. (The dough can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.)
- Make the filling: Add the scallions, onion, garlic, ginger, Scotch bonnet, thyme, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and allspice to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until a chunky paste forms, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the vegetable paste and cook until softened and most of the liquid has evaporated, 3-5 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the ground beef, beef stock, bread crumbs, brown sugar, salt, and Maggi sauce and cook, breaking up the beef with a wooden spoon and stirring frequently, until the mixture is thick and most of the liquid has evaporated, 15-20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the filling cool while you roll out the dough. (The filling can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.)
- Assemble the patties: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190˚C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Remove a portion of patty dough from the refrigerator. Use a bench scraper or a knife to divide the dough in half. Wrap one half in plastic wrap and return to the refrigerator. On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll the remaining half of the dough out to a 8 x 16-inch rectangle, about ⅛ inch thick.
- Scoop 3 ¼-cup mounds of filling just above the horizontal midline of the dough, spacing evenly. Smooth the mounds if needed, then lightly brush the egg wash around the top half of each scoop of filling. Fold the bottom half of the dough up and over the filling, pressing around the mounds to seal and release any air (make sure none of the filling is trapped between the edges of the dough). Use a paring knife to cut between the filling mounds to separate into 3 patties, then trim the edges to about ½ inch. Transfer to a prepared baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator while you repeat with the remaining dough and filling to make 9 more patties. If desired, gather the dough scraps and repeat to make more patties.
- Remove the patties from the refrigerator. Use the tines of a fork to press down around the edges of each patty to seal completely. Brush the tops of the patties generously with egg wash.
- Bake the patties for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown around the edges and slightly crisp on the bottoms. Let cool for at least 10 minutes. Leftover patties can be cooled completely at room temperature, then stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
- Serve the patties with the coco bread.

- Lightly grease a large bowl with melted coconut oil, and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Add coconut oil, coconut milk, sugar, and salt to a medium-size microwaveable bowl; microwave on HIGH until sugar is dissolved and oil is melted, about 1 minute. (Or heat mixture in a small saucepan over low heat for 1 minute.) Stir to combine. Stir in yeast and egg. Add flour to coconut milk mixture, and stir together to form a soft dough.
- Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface, and gently knead until dough is smooth and well combined, about 2 minutes. Resist the urge to add more flour—the softer the dough, the lighter and more tender the coco bread. Place dough in greased bowl; cover lightly with a clean kitchen towel. Let dough rise in a warm place (75F), until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350°F, placing rack in middle position. Punch down dough, and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Using a bread knife or bench scraper, cut dough in half; cut each half into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball, and roll each into a 6- to 7-inch oval about the size of your hand. Oval should be about 1/4-inch thick. Brush surface of each oval with melted coconut oil, and fold in half crosswise to form a semicircle. Brush tops with more melted coconut oil. Place folded dough 1 to 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet; let rest at room temperature 15 minutes. Bake in preheated oven until light brown, about 17 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
