Bread rolls are extremely adaptable. They can become burger buns or fancy seeded knots or a great way to entertain a group of children for an afternoon.
From the Wolfkill Family
2 cups warm water (120° for Rapid Rise yeast)
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup oil
2 pkgs. or 4 teaspoons Rapid Rise yeast
½ cup oatmeal
½ cup ground flax seeds
2 cups whole wheat flour
3-4 cups white flour
Combine water, sugar, salt, egg and oil.
Add the yeast, oatmeal, flax and slowly add the flour and knead or mix until the dough is firm but still sticky. Place in oiled bowl and let rise in warm place. (About 30 minutes.) On a floured surface knead the dough and shape into buns. Place on oiled cookie sheets or in oiled muffin tins. Let rise until double in size. (About 30 minutes.)
Heat the oven to 400°. Bake the buns for 11-15 minutes until golden brown. Spray the bread roll crusts with oil. Cool on racks.
Fabulous with cranberry sauce. These bread rolls are great as burger buns and disappear when children are around.
