Thank you for sharing your recipe. It was really easy to follow. I made 1/4 of the recipe for the two of us. I don't make bread often, not too good at it. I got 6 small rolls. The flavor was really lovely. They made really tasty mini sandwiches. I will try this again, but maybe proof it in my bread maker, then remove to bake. I garnished with basil, thyme, oregano, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and coarse salt. Thank you to diner524 for recommending this tasty recipe. Made for Best of 2013.
- 4 1⁄2-5 cups bread flour
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg white
THREE DIFFERENT TOPPINGS
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 teaspoon instant minced garlic
Almond Herb Topping
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped almonds
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon poppy seed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried garlic
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Directions See How It's Made
- In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, yeast and salt.
- In a small saucepan, using a candy thermometer, heat the milk, water and butter to 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit. Add to dry ingredients. With an electric blender, beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add 2 eggs and beat on high speed for an additional 2 minutes. Gradually stir in remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
- On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth and elastic. (Kneading is a necessary step to ensure that bread dough rises properly.) Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top end of the dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1 hour). TIP: I heat the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 minute, turn off oven, and place the dough inside the oven to rise. (Don’t forget to turn OFF the oven.).
- Punch down dough in the bowl. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 24 portions and shape into balls. Divide the balls between 2 greased 13-inch x 9-inch baking pans. OR, on one muffin tin, place 2 shaped balls next to each other into each greased muffin cup to make 12 rolls.
- Cover with a clean, lightweight towel and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush with lightly beaten egg white and sprinkle rolls with the topping of your choice (or all 3!),.
- Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes or until gold brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
