We are big fans of grilled sub sandwiches. We used to purchase the rolls pre made from the deli at Walmart or Krogers. But I got tired of them getting moldy or stale within a day or so.
So I decided to make my own. Plus it is cheaper and better for you than the store bought stuff.
We already had a dinner roll recipe that we liked. So
I just decided to try making them bigger than usual and they turned out really good. These rolls are sweet like you can get at Ponderosa, Golden Corral or Bob Evans.
As much as I would love to be hard core and make all of our bread by hand, (mixing, kneading etc) I have had to admit that I do not really have time for this all of the time. Between school, kids, house, business and husband...I am thankful for my bread machine.
|Bread Machines are serious time savers.|
We do not really like the flavor of the bread if it has baked in the bread machine, so we compromise. I let it do the mixing and kneading for me and then do the last rise on the top stove and bake in the oven. Tastes much better that way!
~HOMEMADE DELI ROLL RECIPE~
- 3 cups flour
- 3 tbsp sugar (you can also use honey, but will need to add a little more flour)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup dry milk powder
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 tbsp butter softened
- 1 package active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp for those that purchase it in bulk)
-Put all ingredients in bread machine in order recommended by the manufacturer. Set on dough cycle; press start.
|Remember to smile at it fondly as you walk past.|
- When dough cycle has completed, remove the risen dough from the machine. deflate and divide into 8 balls. (If we are having dinner rolls, we would divide into 16) Form balls or dough into rolls, pinching the back.
Then place on a greased baking sheet, cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 40 minutes, or until doubled in size. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
