Buttermilk Sandwich Rolls
A lightly sweet roll that are fragrant cushions for whatever sort of sandwich filling you throw at it. Sometimes you forget how simply, straight bread doughs can be meal makers.
½ cup warm water
2 tablespoons instant yeast
1 cup buttermilk
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup melted butter or canola oil
5-6 cups bread flour
Milk or melted butter
Line a doubled up baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixer bowl, stir the yeast into the water and stir and let stand a few minutes. Then add in a cup of the flour and the cup of buttermilk and stir. Add in remaining ingredients, holding back about one third of the flour so that you mix everything well. Then, using dough hook, knead on slow speed, add in more flour as required, to make a soft dough, knead 8-10 minutes, until dough is soft but elastic.
Gather dough together in mixer and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cover entire mixer with a huge plastic bag and let dough rise 45-60 minutes or until almost doubled in size. (A cool rise is fine too).
Gentle deflate dough and turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide into ten portions. Roll each portion into a 10 inch rope or log and then twist in a knot and place on baking sheet. Do this with remaining portions and brush each with butter or milk. Cover lightly and let rise 45055 minutes until almost doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake 20-22 minutes until well browned all over.
