Welcome to the new Mommy Octopus weekly feature: Tasty Tuesday! I will be showing all of you different recipes that I make with my kids. First up this week is making your own sandwich rolls from scratch. I promise that these are easy to make, super yummy, and much better than anything you can buy in the store. And SOOO soft in the middle!
I like to keep things simple and less messy, so I use my bread machine on the dough cycle to make the dough. If you’re looking for a good bread machine, I highly recommend mine, the Breadman TR2500BC Ultimate Plus 2-Pound Stainless-Steel Convection Breadmaker.
Let’s gather the ingredients that we need:
- 1 1/4 cup warm milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tablespoons softened butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoon yeast
Put the ingredients in your bread machine in order and then set for the dough cycle.
When the dough is ready, place it on a lightly floured surface and then roll it out to about 3/4 inch thick. (My kids got a little carried away with the flour!)
Use a cookie cutter, or in our case, a large cup to cut your rolls. It’s a great time to grab those kiddos with clean hands to come help.
Lay the rolls out on a greased cookie sheet, allowing room in between for the rolls to rise.
Cover and let rise for about an hour until they have doubled in size.
Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes or until a nice light brown.
Then ENJOY! We used a few of them for Cheesesteak sandwiches yesterday. So delish!
There you have it! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
