Today I decided to make some sandwich rolls. I've been on a chicken and turkey salad kick for the past couple of weeks, and it just tastes so much better on a homemade sandwich roll! These are not like dinner rolls...they are more like large hamburger rolls. So easy to make, too! I have always loved baking breads, all different kinds. I don't do as much baking or cooking as I used to, though.
The recipe for these rolls is just my basic bread dough, same recipe I used for my pizza crusts in an earlier post.
BASIC BREAD DOUGH
1 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt (optional)
2 Tbsp. oil
4 cups flour
1 pkg. Fleischman's Rapid Rise Dry Yeast
Heat first 4 ingredients in small mixing bowl on High in microwave for 1 minute. Pour into bread machine pan. Add the flour. Make indentation in top of flour with spoon. Pour dry yeast in center of flour. Set machine on dough setting. 1 hour 20 minutes later, the dough is ready to be made into rolls.
Divide dough in half, and make 6 balls of dough from each half. On a LARGE Air-Bake cookie sheet, lightly sprayed with Pam, form each ball of dough into a roll. Flatten each roll to resemble a hamburger roll. I like to make some smaller for times when I prefer just a small sandwich. Grease tops, cover with wax paper and allow to rise 30-45minutes in a warm place. I heat my oven for just 1 minute and raise mine in it.
Bake at 400 degrees in preheated oven for approximately 15-20 minutes until brown and hollow sounding when lightly tapped. By using the larger size baking sheet, I can fit all 12 on the same sheet. Cool thoroughly on cooling racks. Store in plastic storage bags in refrigerator. They freeze well, too. Yield: 12 large rolls. ENJOY!!!
