I've meant to post a comment on this recipe for months. Sorry!~ This is the most wonderful and easy recipe I've ever used. I changed one thing. I add the sugar to the water/yeast mixture. Thank you so much for sharing. Special thanks to "Mom" for passing it down. I will pass it to my daughter and granddaughter as well. Hope that makes you both smile. Thanks Again!~

This is a good basic recipe. I added the yeast and sugar to 1 cup of 105 degree water and heated the remaining 1 1/4 cup of water to melt the shortening, letting it cool to 110 degree before adding everything else to it. It took almost 7 cups of flour to get a smooth elastic dough, but I added the additional flour 1/4 cup at a time as it can change due to temperature, weather, type of flour, etc.. I made 6 mini loaves and baked for about 27 minutes. We prefer a little saltier bread so next time I may up the salt just a little. Thanks for sharing.

This recipe isn't very good-you forgot to let us know when and where to add the sugar (so it doesn't get added anywhere, although you have it listed) and you leave out the rise times. I know it says 4 1/2 hours prep time, so one could probably safely assume a rise time of one hour each time, but what if you DON'T use rapid rise yeast?? Then what? And it didn't take 6 cups of flour to make it non-tacky-it took more like 8! (But I think this was because the sugar got left out). Also, what size loaf pan should one use? You only mention making rolls on a 10x13 pan-how big of rolls? Are we supposed to shape them, roll them out and cut them, or do "drop" rolls? VERY unclear! I wasted all my ingredients and time on this recipe. Next time, be more detailed (which this is not).

Thanks to PetesNina I too was looking for a sausage sandwich roll recipe. A few times bread recipes didn't work for me or dough was runny. If you say it's easy I'm gonna try it thanks for your input. Ange724

This is wonderful bread! I was looking for a recipe for sausage sandwich rolls, got tired of looking and decided to make this recipe. Man, am I glad I did! I have several bread recipes that I use on a regular basis, and this one is going to be one of my favorites! I did use rapid rise yeast, and the rise time was cut to about 30 minutes each time. Thanks for sharing!
