Homemade Sandwich Rolls
We were almost out of bread today and I couldn't get to the store because Logan is sick. So, I decided to make sandwich rolls instead. Here is a fairly easy recipe for them. And everyone here seemed to enjoy them! These are really soft and yummy.
1 1/4 cup warm milk
2 Tbsp. white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour plus flour for kneading, etc.
3/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp. butter, melted for top after cooking
Add sugar and yeast to warm milk and let sit for 10 minutes, until frothy
Whisk or sift together the dry ingredients.
Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the milk/yeast mixture, melted butter and egg. Combine until it makes a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 7 - 10 minutes. You might need to add more flour depending on how sticky the dough is. Oil or butter a bowl and place dough in the bowl, making sure to roll the dough around the greased bowl. Cover with a damp towel and let sit in a warm place until doubled. It only took mine about an hour and a half.
Take dough out of bowl. Beat down. Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it's about 3/4 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter or glass to cut circles. I used a glass that was about 3" in diameter. (I sprayed it with cooking spray before I began cutting). Place dough circles on greased baking sheets and let rise again for 20 minutes. Cook in oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes or until golden. Once they are out of the oven, brush them with the melted butter.
