Roll With It

I can't get enough of my super amazing bread machine.  It's ranked up there as one of the best presents ever. 

I pretty much perfected the bread for sandwiches from the recipes that came with the machine.  I've done white, wheat, milk bread and even a banana bread that wasn't so great because it wasn't banana bread like you're thinking.  It  was more like banana flavored bread so it wasn't anything to write home about.  Like, if I ate toast every day, maybe I'd like it.  But otherwise, it was useless.

I am not a fan of sandwiches anymore.  I'm not sure what happened.  It doesn't even matter the kind of bread.  About 3 years ago, I just got repulsed by the flavor of a sandwich and I can only eat about half nowadays.  I love bread and I love the bread as a piece  of bread, but the sandwich has lost its appeal.

Rolls for Christmas were my next adventure.  They were pretty amazing the first time but then I had a little issue when it came to actually make them for Christmas.

My sister, the bread genius, told me how she made hamburger rolls.  It got me thinking and now, I can make rolls for sandwiches my very own self.  This was the first time I tried wheat rolls. I am not a fan of wheat bread but k-ster is, so I tried these.  I just do the recipe for the dough like it says in the book for whatever type I am making.  When the dough is ready, I take it out and form 6 fairly flat rolls.

Then I put them on my nice warm radiator with a towel over them to let them rise again for about 40 minutes. 
Then I bake them at 400 for about 15 minutes.

Cut them in half and you've got yourself a sandwich roll and you controlled the ingredients!

I've been thinking that if I shaped them longer, I could make sub sized sandwiches.  The possibilities are endless!
