I made this into rolls, and have already gobbled two, with prosciutto, goat cheese and sharp provolone. I made this in my bread machine, and threw in a couple of spoonfuls of vital wheat gluten to help gluten development. I also just sprayed the rolls with butter-flavored cooking spray. I used white whole wheat flour. They smelled wonderful baking and taste great. The various seeds give great texture to this bread.
